Hridya R. Suman, M.D.
I chose to be a pediatrician because I enjoy the opportunity to work with children and follow them as they mature and grow. I found my passion with pediatric nephrology, where I am privileged to be intimately involved with patients and their families in clinical care, and also engaged with the research of emerging issues affecting children that can help them in the future.
Dr. Suman received her degree in Medicine (M.B.B.S.) from J.S.S. Medical College in India. Following medical school, she completed a residency in Pediatrics at Nassau University Medical Center, East Meadow, NY, and was appointed as Chief Resident in Pediatrics for an additional year. After the residency program, she completed a fellowship in Pediatric Nephrology at The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY. Since she wanted to pursue a career in clinical research, she complemented fellowship training with a Master of Science Degree in Clinical Research Methods from the Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP) at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
Her areas of interest include pediatric hypertension, nephrotic syndrome, urinary tract disorders, acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease and kidney transplantation.
