    Dr. Sitaram Parvateneni


    Dr. Parvateneni, Dr. Sita for short, started working for Banfield in 2011, after working at our Manchester location he arrived at South City in 2012. He attended N.G. Ranga Agricultural University in India and upon obtaining his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, moved to the United States to work towards his master’s degree in immunology. He decided after four years of immunology research at Michigan State University, he was missing something...PETS! This is what led him to us, and we have been very grateful to have him here. When he is not high-fiving the South City staff and saving lives, he is visiting Niagara Falls, sharing his spicy food or hanging out at home with his wife, Vani, daughter, Aarna, kitty, Jooju and Labrador, Starlee.
