Dr. Naidu's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Naidu "Dr Naidu, born and raised in the United States, spent his childhood in the Atlanta area before going off to college. He attended the University of California at Berkeley for undergraduate studies. Dr Naidu then returned back to the southeast for medical school at the University of Alabama, School of Medicine in Birmingham from which he graduated in 1998. He was elected class president in medical school and went on to residency in Otolaryngology, also known as Ear, Nose, and throat surgery at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center in Memphis, Tennessee. He received the College of Medicine Teaching award in 2002 and graduated in 2004. He is board-certified in his surgical specialty of Otolaryngology and is a fellow of the American Academy of Surgeons as well as the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy. Dr Naidu has practiced as a partner of Midsouth ENT ever since completing his residency more than 10 years ago. He and his office staff, including 2 nurse practitioners, care for both children and adults with issues of the ears, nose and sinuses, and neck and throat. He sees patients in 2 clinic locations: Germantown at 7600 Wolf River Blvd, Suite 220 and Collierville at 1458 West Poplar Avenue Suite 204. He operates at multiple hospitals and surgery centers to better accommodate patient needs and insurance preferences. He sees a large number of pediatric patients and works at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital and Surgery Center as well as Baptist Children's Hospital to care for some of these patients. While Dr Naidu cares for problems of all areas of the ears, nose, and throat, he does care for a large percentage of children. Children with ear infections, snoring, sinus infections, and neck masses and infections are just some of the ailments that Dr Naidu can help manage. In his adult patients, he also sees many with ear infections and hearing or balance problems, voice problems, and sinus and allergy issues among others. When he is not working, Dr Naidu enjoys spending time with his family. He has been married to his wife, Paula, for 15 years and has 2 boys, Jason and Ravi. They enjoy bird watching, biking, the theater, and traveling. Dr Naidu sings in an a cappella group in Memphis called Deltacappella. He has been with them since 2008 and has performed both locally and even outside the Midsouth as far as Las Vegas and even Shanghai, China. Outside of his musical interest, Dr Naidu enjoys exercising, running, and cooking."

Dr. Naidu has provided excellent care for my family for almost ten years and I can't imagine trusting any other ENT to meet our needs. He is very knowledgable and highly skilled. He is patient and takes time to ensure that patients understand the treatment plan/process and that their concerns are also addressed. I never feel rushed by him and my kids are always at ease during our visits with him. He's a gem and I highly recommend him!

Cordova, TN |
I came into the office without an appointment after being seen by a minor med and also a trip to the ER. The nurses made sure I was seen by Dr Naidu who took excellent care of me and got me on the road to recovery. Everyone from the receptionist to the nurses were great. I highly recommend Dr Naidu to all of my family and friends!

Office staff was unprofessional when calling, almost laughed at me trying to make an apt for some sleep problems that I am having, and did not offer any other recommendations. Go somewhere other than this practice.
