Dr. Reddy's Real Office
About Dr. Reddy
I am an Associate Professor of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine at the
Western Michigan University School of Medicine, and an Associate Professor
of Pediatrics and Human Development at Michigan State University
I teach at the WMU School of Medicine in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
(Neither WMU, the WMU School of Medicine, Michigan State University,
nor their partner hospitals contribute directly to, or have any
control over, the material I post on this Web site.)
Most of my practice over the years has been
as a pediatric hospitalist (a pediatrician who subspecializes
in inpatient pediatrics), but I have also practiced and now also teach
outpatient pediatrics. I also have extensive experience in management
of patients with
eating disorders (anorexia and bulimia) both in and out of the hospital.

- General Pediatric Patients
- As a medical school, the WMU School of Medicine provides medical care
to patients seen at the school and at our partner hospitals. These
patients are cared for by residents and medical students under
the supervision of professors of pediatrics. My fellow pediatric
faculty and I do not normally see private outpatients who are
not first seen by residents or students. It is possible for me to see
my former private-practice patients by special arrangement, but this
must be arranged directly with me.
- Eating Disorder Patients
- I have worked with patients with
eating disorders (anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa)
for many years, and I am director of the WMed Eating Disorder Program.
I am happy to see patients with eating disorders who are referred
to me by their primary physicians for consultation. For more
information, please have your doctor call Marlene Pryson, WMed
Pediatric Subspecialty Clinic Coordinator, at (269) 337-6430, and then
choose extension 5.
Information and Media Inquiries
- Links to this site
- Unlike some Webmasters, I am happy to have other Web sites link to
my topic pages directly without having to go through my home page. I
try not to change page URLs at all; if I do change a URL I will also
maintain redirection from the old URL for at least several months after
- Quotations from this site
- I generally give permission for the use of quotations from this site,
but I prefer to be asked for permission first, especially for extensive
quotes. If you are quoting extensively, I do ask that you
E-mail me with your
specific request, and that you send me a copy (physical or electronic)
of the finished piece.
- Print Interviews
- I am occasionally asked by writers for more extensive information on
subjects than I have posted on the site. I am usually happy to provide
you with such information if asked. Please try to give me at least one
week of lead time -- more if possible (like most primary-care physicians,
my work schedule is long and irregular, and this site is a spare-time
project of mine).
- Other Media Interviews
- I am also occasionally asked to do interviews for broadcast. I am
usually happy to do those as well, but this is dependent on my work
schedule (I can't do interviews and admit a patient to the hospital
at the same time). I also prefer to review material on the subject at
hand before an interview. Therefore, if you would like to interview me,
I ask for as much lead time as you can allow (one day is nice; 1/2 hour
is occasionally feasible).

PLEASE NOTE: As with all of this Web site, I try to give
general answers to common questions my patients and their parents ask me
in my (real) office. If you have specific questions about your
child you must ask your child's regular doctor. No doctor can give
completely accurate advice about a particular child without knowing and
examining that child. I will be happy to try and answer
about children's health, but unless your child is a regular patient of
mine I cannot give you specific advice.
