Philosophy of Care
Dr. Palanisamy's thirst for knowledge and longstanding yoga practice influenced his decision to become a physician and learn about holistic approaches.

Mahadevan, MD, at Sarada Ayurvedic Hospital in Kanyakumari, India.

He is a skilled diagnostician and works in partnership with his patients to develop personalized and comprehensive treatment plans that incorporate nutritional supplements, herbs, massage and bodywork, and mind-body techniques.
Dr. Palanisamy is dedicated to serving the needs of patients and the community, and advancing the practice of medicine. He brings compassion and insight, along with in-depth knowledge and experience, to his evidenced-based integrative medicine practice, successfully treating a wide variety of serious, chronic health conditions.
