Sudha Rao, M.D., FAAP

I have been practicing pediatrics in Shreveport for over 30 years. I moved to the United States from India after finishing medical school. I completed my residency in Pediatrics at LSU Medical School in Shreveport, and I started my practice in general pediatrics on the WK-South campus in 1981. I obtained Board Certification in Pediatrics  (American Board of Pediatrics) in 1981 and maintenance of certification programs as a Diplomat of the American Board of Pediatrics in 2009. I am a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of the Northwest Louisiana Pediatric Society. I have served on several different committees over the years at Willis-Knighton Medical Center.

In 2008, I received the People’s Choice Award for Top Pediatricians in Shreveport/Bossier by the Shreveport Times. I was also recognized several times for the Top Pediatrician by Louisiana Life Magazine. I have received the America’s Top Pediatrician award for the past several years.

I am married to Dr. Ashok Rao, an Anesthesiologist in Shreveport, and we have 2 daughters. I enjoy teaching Sunday school, reading, gardening and travel.
