About Me

Dr. Muralidhar received her medical education and degree in her native India at M.S. Ramaiah Medical College in Bangalore. She continued there with an internship and was a postgraduate resident in Internal Medicine at Kasturba Medical College in Mangalore and, later a senior resident in Internal Medicine at Bangalore.

In 2003, she moved to the United Kingdom and served as house officer in Internal Medicine at the Isle of Man. She moved to the United States in 2008 and completed a postgraduate residency in Internal medicine at Interfaith Medical Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. She was also fellowship trained in geriatric medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, N.Y.

This background, including formal and informal teaching opportunities, provided her the opportunity to demonstrate and share her skills with doctors in training and with nurses. While at Interfaith Medical Center she received the organization’s humanitarian award.

She moved to Shreveport with her husband in 2021 after serving as a primary care physician at Trinity Health of New England in Massachusetts. Her patients here have the benefit of more than 20 years of experience in primary care, with a decade of service to primary care patients in the U.S.
