South Charlotte Pediatrics - Practice Transition Notice



Dear Patient / Guardian:

    On June 10, 2022, two new pediatricians Dr. Sailakshmi Pallimalli, MD (Dr. Sai) and Dr. Poornima Baddi, MD (Dr. Poornima) established their pediatric practice at the current location of South Charlotte pediatrics as HEALTHY KIDZ.

Dr. Khurana & I will continue to work at the practice until July 31, 2022.

While I am confident about the ability of Dr Sai and Dr. Poornima to take care of your child’s needs, you may stay at the same practice location with HEALTHY KIDZ or choose another pediatrician to provide your medical care.
Your medical records will continue to be available at the practice and with proper authorization you may obtain a copy of your medical record or have a copy sent to the physician of your choice. The location and telephone number of the practice shall remain unchanged.

It has been my pleasure and privilege to serve you during the course of my practice. Thank you for entrusting me with your child’s medical care. I wish you and your family well.

Sincerely,

Neeta Kukreja
Neera Khurana
