Dr. Padmanabha (aka Dr. Padman) strives to be an excellent radiation oncologist who is approachable, accessible, and generally there for his patients. He answers most patient and family phone calls on the same day and there’s someone on-call after hours for urgent questions. His aim is that patients and families leave his office more confident, calmer, with a thorough and honest understanding of their diagnosis. Dr. Sidd Padman fell in New Orleans almost immediately, and has been taking care of patients in the New Orleans area for about ten years. Prior to that, he studied at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech – go Beavers!) and went to medical school at the University of California (UCSF).
