Dr. Veerula

Welcome to Jefferson Pediatrics! I am excited to be involved in your child’s journey in becoming a happy, responsible and healthy individual.

I graduated in 1979 from the Institute of Medical Sciences, Osmania University-Hyderabad in Southern India. After practicing briefly in India and Jamaica, W.I.,  I completed my pediatric residency in Galveston, Texas.  Soon after I started my practice in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1995 and has been serving the local Fort Wayne community ever since.  With a staff of talented and caring professionals Jefferson Pediatrics is dedicated to the wellness and health of all children in a very happy patient friendly environment. It is my belief that, with the help of comprehensive approach of prevention and treating illnesses, parents’ should be able to keep their children healthy and happy in school and on the playground free of nagging, recurring medical problems, rather than frequently being in the doctors’ offices, hospitals and perennially going through the  pharmacy drive-through’s picking up a bunch of endless medical prescriptions.

   I firmly believe that preventive care is an important treatment component. My staff and I strive to counsel patients and families on the importance of healthy lifestyles in addition to providing 24/7 medical care.

Thank you for choosing Jefferson Pediatrics.
