Milwaukee, This is Your Front Line: Pakhadi Buddhadev, MD
My name is Dr. Pakhadi Buddhadev. I am a clinical assistant professor at the Medical College of Wisconsin and a hospitalist in internal medicine at Froedtert Hospital. My role often changes as I has been covering nights and weekends for our hospitalist group. I am often the first to see and admit a patient from the emergency room or assess a suddenly ill patient on the floor during a rapid response. These days, these patients are often COVID-19 positive.
I am married to a critical care doctor, and together we are worried about exposing our own family, including my two young boys. Although things are often unpredictable, I am committed to showing up each and every day.
