For Dr. Reza Madani, joining Center City Pediatrics seems like his destiny. He has truly come “full circle.” How else can we explain that the very first baby he saw with our practice was in the same room at Pennsylvania Hospital in which he was born!
If this isn’t strange enough, unbeknownst to him, his mentor at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, where he trained, was Dr. Berger’s close friend and colleague from Atlanta. Also, like Dr. Berger, Dr. Madani, has traveled the world (over 20 countries), been on medical brigades, and worked extensively with children with special needs.
Although he grew up on the Main Line in Philly, he is now committed to Center City, having lived in and around the city for 10 years. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from University of Pennsylvania where he double majored in anthropology and biological basis of behavior. From there, he did not travel far – Drexel University School of Medicine – where he served as his medical school class president. After rotating at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, he knew he wanted to focus on pediatrics and train near home.
Now, he loves the Philly restaurant scene (and can even order in fluent Italian). You might also catch a fleeting glimpse of him running along the Schuylkill. If you see him, feel free to join him because he enjoys the company. However, be prepared to run far. He may be training for another half-marathon.
Needless to say, Dr. Madani is now thrilled to work with children in his community at Center City Pediatrics. He looks forward to combining this “village” approach with his up-to-date pediatric training that he brings to our practice.
