Dr. Ram Subbureddiar, physician at East Tucson IM & Geriatrics, Inc., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in geriatrics.
With over 35 years of experience to his credit, Dr. Subbereddiar has excelled as physician at East Tucson IM & Geriatrics, Inc. for 21 years. He began his career in India as a tuberculosis researcher and then worked as a physician for 15 years before immigrating to the United States in 1997. A dedicated and proud doctor, he provides care for his patients both at his clinic and in the hospital where he is based. He spends his mornings undertaking rounds at the hospital before heading to his office to see patients. In addition, he also visits nearby nursing homes where some of his patients reside.
Before embarking on his professional path, Dr. Subbereddiar pursued an education at the Brooklyn Medical School at Long Island College Hospital, completing his residency in 1977. He successfully carried out a fellowship in geriatric medicine at New York University. He holds a certification from the American Board of Internal Medicine. Beyond his responsibilities within the field, he has participated in numerous endeavors outside of his professional circles. He has performed charitable work and donated to two schools in Tucson.
In light of his impressive undertakings, Dr. Subbereddiar has accrued several accolades throughout his career. He was recognized as the top-ranking student in India and awarded second place in the All-India Competitive Examination for Top Students. He credits his success to his father, who was his greatest motivator. Despite having to do a pilot study instead of attending school in India, his father educated him on each subject, leading to his emergence as the top student in his university.
Dr. Subbureddiar’s passion for being a doctor stems from his desire to fulfill his father’s wish for him to become one. During his 15 years of practice in India, he conducted extensive research on tuberculosis treatment, focusing on schema therapy, now a standard of care worldwide. His research was even published in the American Review of Respiratory Diseases. In 1997, he moved to the United States to pave the way for his son to become a doctor, who is now a successful cardiologist. In the immediate future, he aims to continue practicing medicine as long as possible before retiring.
