Dr. Gandhi attended Rush Medical College where she graduated with AOA honors in 2003. She completed her Internal Medicine Residency, where she was chosen to be a Chief Medical Resident by her program, and then pursued an Adult and Pediatric Allergy/Immunology fellowship, all at the University of California San Diego.
She has since returned to the Chicago area and has been in practice treating patients of all ages. Her patients are given care based on the latest guidelines for the treatment of asthma, nasal/eye allergies, atopic dermatitis (eczema), food allergy, urticaria (hives), angioedema (swelling), medication allergies, and immunodeficiencies. She is an advocate for vaccines and understands their public health impact, immunologic importance and safety. In addition, Dr. Gandhi has had specialized training in Allergic Contact Dermatitis testing/treatment, Periodic Fevers (PFAPA), Familial Cold Autoinflammatory Syndrome (FCAS), and the management of aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (Samter’s triad).
Dr. Gandhi’s career passion is patient education. She believes that when patients are invested and understand their illness, their compliance and quality of life improve. Each of her patients are given a thoughtful assessment with a full explanation of their personalized treatment plan. A combination of recommended environmental control measures, medications and immunomodulation are offered, as appropriate. Patients are given written instructions and personalized handouts to aid in their journey to better health.
Dr. Gandhi has had personal experience with multiple allergic concerns, both as a patient and a mother. She understands the impact these diseases have and has experienced the practical aspects of implementing treatment. She has two children who are the loves of her life. In her free time she enjoys cooking, listening to music, dancing, decorating, organizing and traveling.
