Philosophy

Cancer diagnosis is one of the most stressful situations a person can ever face. Not only the person, but the entire family is affected by the burden of the disease.

I strongly believe in helping and providing compassionate care for the patients and their families through this critical period, by offering individualized treatment strategies that best fit their goals and wishes. 

Personal

Dr. Aluri is married and blessed with two beautiful children, a boy and a girl. During her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, cooking and music.
