Shailendra Misra MD
Medical School: Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, India
Residency: Pediatric residency at Medical College of Ohio, Toledo, Ohio
Fellowship: Pediatric emergency medicine at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Detroit, Michigan
Practice Emphasis: I aim to treat children and their families as I would my own. I like my treatment focus to be complete pediatric care, from newborn to young adult. On each visit I place great emphasis on education as well as prevention. When parents and children understand their illness, then they are better able to cope with and follow through with treatment guidelines.
I have 3 children.
I have lived the majority of my life in Ontario, Canada.
We are extremely active as a family, such as swimming, dancing, gymnastics, softball, basketball, cross country running, marathons, and triathlons.
Before going into medicine, I was a high school teacher for 4 years.
When asked why he chose to come to Wauseon, Dr. Misra replied:
My childhood was spent growing up in small towns, where everyone knew you, and there was a sense that people cared about you. Over the past nine years my focus as a pediatrician has been in pediatric emergency medicine at larger health facilities. I am extremely grateful to return to the small town atmosphere where I can treat people like family. I want to learn your child’s name and remember it, watch your child grow, and know that I was a small part in their life.
