Aravind Pothineni, MD
I was born in Ongole, India and attended medical school at Andhra Medical College, Visakhapatnam. I'm interested in Interventional Pulmonology and am fluent in 3 languages: Telugu, Hindi and Tamil. I chose to do my fellowship at Upstate because of their strong clinical orientation and nice community.
Pankaj Mehta, MD
I was Born in New Delhi, India and attended medical school at Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi. My interests are in good medicine and love to travel. My decision to pursue a fellowship in Pulmonary Critical Care at Upstate started when I interviewed for the medicine residency program. I found the program to be very dynamic with an excellent opportunity to learn and practice great medicine. The program was extremely friendly with great academics and excellent faculty. I love the Upstate NY area, with lots to do outdoors both in winter and summer. Looking back, I am glad I chose Upstate for residency and feel honored to have been accepted into the Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship.
