About

Bio

I have a passion for women's health and particularly enjoy healing skin, integrative holistic medicine and personal development. I am double board-certified in ObGyn and Integrative Holistic Medicine. I aim to look for solutions to the many problems people today face and my goal in life is to inspire and empower as many people as possible to manifest their true divine potential. I perform skin consulting for acne, dark spots, melanoma, scars, rosacea, eczema, keratosis pilaris, sensitive skin, sun damage, wrinkles by providing safe clinically-proven non-pharmaceutical regimens for those who live in the US and Canada. Please call 585-364-8018 to arrange a free skin consultation. I see patients in my local office for routine gyn and obstetrical care along with consultations for robotic and minimally invasive surgery. I am a writer and enjoy writing on topics that empower and excite people to live their highest potential. I perform personal development consulting as a facilitator for the Thinking into Results program of the Proctor Gallagher Institute. You may go to sraddhaprativadi.tiritstime.com and enter your information for 8 important questions that warrant your attention. I look forward to helping you healing your skin or reach your mind potential whether you are in my town or not and if you are in the greater Rochester area, I would be humbled to be your medical provider or be involved in the care of mutual patients.
