Meet Dr. Sachin Tadphale
As a young child growing up in the suburbs of Mumbai, Sachin Tadphale, M.D., was drawn to science, especially biology and the world of medicine. He received his medical degree from Maharashtra University of Health Sciences and completed two fellowships, one in pediatric critical care medicine at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX, the other in advanced pediatric cardiovascular medicine at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
It was during his pediatric residency at Albany Medical Center, NY, that he knew pediatric critical care was truly his passion. Dr. Tadphale knows that illness can be a difficult period for everyone. Having one's child in an intensive care unit is way more stressful. "At work, when I devise plans for a critically ill child, I also put myself in the parents' shoes to get their perspective. It helps a lot."
He's very happy that he's found a home at Cook Children's. Many of his colleagues in the past are also here. Of course, he also enjoys the work-life balance of helping children and families heal, and living in the DFW Metroplex. When he's not caring for patients, Dr. Tadphale loves spending time with his wife and daughter, listening to Indian classical music, reading, and some cooking.
