Dr. Manjunath grew up in the northeast suburbs of Atlanta but left for college and is thrilled to finally be back home and near family. Prior to joining CMG, she was a pediatric hospitalist in Chicago practicing in a variety of clinical settings. At one hospital, she staffed an emergency room and cared for children admitted with chronic medical problems. At another site, she cared for children admitted to a community hospital for common childhood illnesses. While she loved her previous job, Dr. Manjunath always wanted to join a practice like CMG where she could care for kids when healthy or sick, and partner with families to optimize their child’s growth and development for years to come!
Dr. Manjunath met her husband, Adarsh, in Chicago while in college and they’ve been married since 2016. He’s originally from St. Louis but they’re both excited to be putting down roots in Atlanta. In her free time, she enjoys running, hiking, and spending time with her family. She never played an organized sport growing up, so took up tennis and swimming lessons just prior to starting with CMG and is loving every minute of it!
