Champaign, IL 61822
“Growing up in a cosmopolitan city, I was exposed to several cultures, ethnicities, and socioeconomic strata. People may have different views and beliefs, but deep inside they are all human. To me a patient is always a person first. I take the extra effort to know the person more individually and treat the illness and the person as a whole.”

Why I Chose Health Care
“As a high school student in eleventh and twelfth grades, I volunteered to gather health statistics data for the city of Bombay, India. This provided me with an exceptional insight to the health care needs and deficiencies of the urban poor. The experience created a heightened awareness and inspired me to seek a career in the medical field.”
As a physician assistant in Christie Clinic’s Convenient Care, Pradnya works in collaboration with our physicians to evaluate and treat non-emergent conditions such as allergies, infections, colds, and more.
In her spare time, Pradnya enjoys gardening, traveling, and spending time with her husband, Praful, and children, Mayand and Dhairav.
