About This ProviderPrint

Dr. Aluri believes a physician must be up to date with the most current medical research data. She says, “It is important to me that patients are treated as a dignified human being and not as a number or a statistic. I chose to pursue endocrinology as it is a cognitive specialty.”

She continues, “It allows me to play "medical detective" where I integrate the patient's labs, history, records and imaging studies to diagnose and treat them appropriately. I listen to my patients and try to educate them through every step of their therapy as they need to be informed decision makers.”

As a healthcare provider, she is motivated each day by the ability to help a patient achieve a better quality of life and to learn something new each day from her patients and their medical condition.
