Who he is :
Dr S Pradeep is a man of impeccable value - a practising radiologist with a large heart and a continuing donor to AAT. He heads the Radiology Department and Fetal Medicine Department at Fortis Hospital, Bangalore. He has a knack of seeing the bigger picture and is a steady, welcoming presence, instilling courage and conviction
Path to AAT: Dr. Pradeep Srinivasan has clinical experience of more than 23 years (MBBS, MD, DNB Radiology). He completed his graduation from PSGIMS, Coimbatore. Dr. Pradeep then did his MD in Radiology at JJMMC, Davangere. Accolades have followed Dr. Pradeep throughout his medical career - he is the recipient of numerous awards, including National Gold DL Shah Award for his project on fetal Down’s Syndrome. While medicine has always fascinated him, his parents instilled philanthropy in him from a young age. In fact, his father urged him to keep aside at least 1% of his earnings as a doctor for the needy. Dr. Pradeep needed no further urging and his life revolved around his philanthropy.
Passion: His patients know him to be a kind, gentle doctor. But Dr. Pradeep’s other true passion, apart from medicine, has been altruism. He has been helping the underprivileged, blind, disabled, and the old or destitute for the past 20 years.
He advocates Belaku Academy’s cause ardently and raises funds through both social media and his own network. "I have film stars and politicians as my patients who are donors. Social media is a good platform. I post images of my charity work that attracts donors,” he says.
Personal: Dr. Pradeep is married and lives in Bangalore. Most of his Sundays are spent working on various philanthropic causes. He has supported various non-profits for more than 20 years and is the driving force behind AAT.
