NEWTON – Newton Memorial Hospital is proud to announce Shashidhar S. Reddy, M.D., as one of the newest members of the Hospital’s physician family.
The addition of Dr. Reddy, an Ear, Nose & Throat specialist based in Sparta, will greatly increase the community’s access to Otolaryngology care. His expertise will compliment ENT services offered by Warren L. Galeos, M.D., who has been on-staff at Newton Memorial for 22 years and the only local provider of these services for much of that time.
“Dr. Galeos has been an important part of Newton Memorial Hospital for many years and has been the go-to guy when ENT services are needed on an emergent basis,” Newton Memorial Hospital Vice President of Medical Affairs David Lazarus, M.D., said. “By adding Dr. Reddy, Newton Memorial is providing another specialist who can handle these matters, thereby enhancing access to healthcare for residents of this community.”
Dr. Reddy joins the Medical & Surgical Specialty Group at the Sparta Health & Wellness Center. Previously, he was part of an eight-man practice based in Teaneck.
“I’m excited to have my own practice but even moreso because there is a need in this area,” Dr. Reddy said. “This opportunity allows me to offer a broad range of services from my repertoire and is really a great fit for me and the community. I wet my feet at the other practice and now I’m ready to take charge.”
Dr. Reddy received his Medical Degree from Louisiana State University, where he also received a Master’s Degree in Public Health. He completed his Otolaryngology residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch.
Board Certified in Otolaryngology, Dr. Reddy’s repertoire includes a non-painful procedure to reduce or eliminate chronic snoring. Many of the services he provides can be handled in his office, but he also is an expert in Sinus Surgery, Sleep Apnea and Snoring Procedures, Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery as well as Salivary Gland Surgery.
“I chose Otolaryngology because it offers a good combination of being able to treat people in an office with regular medicine and it allows me to go to the OR to use my hands to help people,” Dr. Reddy said. “It’s the best of both worlds.”
