Dr. Chellamuthu's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Chellamuthu "Dr. Ramesh Chellamuthu grew up plowing fields and gathering eggs on his family's farm. After completing his medical training at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, he was drawn to Alabama's warm weather and laidback atmosphere. Personal experience with kidney disease prompted him to specialize in nephrology. "My grandmother suffered from renal failure, so I understand the pain it causes in a family," he says. "My goal is to treat patients as people – not only addressing their disease, but relieving anxiety about what they're facing." Dr. Chellamuthu completed his Internal Medicine residency and Nephrology fellowship at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. He is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Nephrology. In 2015, he earned a master's degree in business administration from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, graduating summa cum laude. Dr. Chellamuthu is a member of several honor societies, including Phi Kappa Phi and Gamma Beta Phi. Previously, he served as medical director at DaVita Dialysis in Rainbow City and Boaz, Alabama, and as a member of the physician council at Nephrology Practice Solutions (NPS). Today, he's chairman of the nephrology division and serves as secretary of the medical executive committee at Riverview Regional Medical Center, and serves on the credential committee at Gadsden Regional Medical Center. When he's not practicing medicine, Dr. Chellamuthu enjoys reading books on human behavior and happiness. He also loves playing (and coaching) tennis and spending time with his family. His wife is also a practicing physician, and they have two children."
