Redbud Team

Meet Dr. Reddy

I am a Wichitan with a classic Kansas upbringing. I was raised in a large family, in a small farming community. My family and upbringing have instilled in me the “small town” values and attitudes that continue to define me today: get along with others (you’ll have them in your classroom until you graduate from high school), take responsibility for your actions (before someone sees your parents and tells on you), look out for one another (because they are looking out for you), and participate in your community (you can’t sit on the bench if there are only five girls on the team).

I became a pediatrician because I was drawn to the incredible resiliency, openness, and innocence of children in the face of illness or even chronic diseases. A pediatrician is trained not only to diagnose and treat the illnesses of childhood, but also to respect and recognize the vulnerabilities and strengths of children. A good pediatrician will work with families to improve their child’s health and behaviors in a way that will impact them into their adult lives. A good pediatrician can help parents enjoy their children more and worry about them less. This is the kind of physician that all children deserve and that I strive to be.

I have a lot of things that I feel strongly about as a pediatrician: fruit is good for kids, fruit juice is not. Breastmilk is best, but formula is not toxic! Immunizations save lives, and your child should get all the recommended ones on time. Not all infections need antibiotics. Routines are very important for all children, especially bedtimes. You should read or share books with your child every day. Most nosebleeds are caused by fingers in noses. Seat-belts save lives. Brush your teeth twice a day. . .

I would love the opportunity to get to know your family and care for your child at Redbud Pediatrics!

Meet Dr. Page

When I was just 3 months old, my parents left their home in Southeast Asia in a boat in the middle of the night. We drifted for days without food until we reached a safe haven in Malaysia. When we immigrated to the United States, I was just 9 months old and we arrived with few possessions. Through my parents, I learned strength, perseverance and hope. Through their example, I learned what hard work and dedication could bring.

I was drawn to the pediatric field in medical school because as a toddler, I became very ill. A very kind doctor not only healed me, but was able to ease my parents’ worries without saying a word as my parents didn’t speak English at the time.

My mother told me this story many times over my lifetime and I felt indebted to this physician. Through his example and my parents’ encouragement and motivation, I became a pediatrician. Children are innocent and special and need an experienced, kind-hearted pediatrician to take care of them. I have had the honor of caring for children from all sorts of backgrounds. I have seen nervous moms and anxious dads. I have shared laughs, been priveleged to important moments, and shed tears with familes. I have seen my patients grow from shy toddlers to talkative school children.

I am blessed to have the opportunity to practice in my home town, close to my family and life-long friends. I relish this time and look forward to many more years of service in this community that has given so much to me and my family. Pediatricians not only treat illnesses but they have the unique position to provide a foundation to help children become all they can be.

I would be honored to be your child’s pediatrician and to help your child flourish physically, emotionally and socially!

Meet Dr. Lopez

I was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas.  I am a first generation Hispanic who comes from a hard working family that immigrated to the United States in search of the “American Dream.”  My parents instilled in me the importance of education, hard work, dedication and striving to be the best you can be.

Practicing pediatrics has allowed me to be a teacher. Educating parents about the use of medications, particularly antibiotics, is very important because I know it makes a difference for the child’s health in the long run.  I am a strong proponent for allowing the body to try to heal itself in times of illness.  I feel that there are situations where medications are indicated, but these situations are specific.  Parents need to be provided with tools and information about what they need to watch for in their child in case a situation worsens.

Throughout the years I have found that my profession as a pediatrician requires many other abilities:  good communication, dedication, empathy, patience, trustworthiness, authenticity.  I have been blessed that my parents worked to instill these qualities in me from a young age.  I appreciate what a true privilege, blessing, and great responsibility it is when parents place their trust in me to provide the best possible care for their child.  Therefore, I strive every day to continue to meet these highest of expectations.

I know a little personally about children as well.  My husband and I have four young children.  We enjoy spending personal time with our extended families who are here in Wichita, changing diapers, and trying to stay ahead of the clutter that goes along with having young kids in the home!

I would be greatly honored to have the opportunity to get to know your family and care for your children at Redbud Pediatrics!

Meet Katrina Hinds, Physician Assistant

I grew up reading my mom’s professional nursing journals, eagerly awaiting the arrival of the next issue. This, along with my mom’s love for the health profession, piqued my interest in the field of medicine at an early age. I also had a nephew born with congenital heart disease in the late 1980’s, before the modern advances in cardiac surgeries for children. Through his struggles as a young child, and all that he endured, I developed a great respect for children and their amazing will and pure strength. Though they are strong, I believe they need us to guide, direct and discipline them and to provide nurturing, healthy environments in order to thrive.

I graduated from Friends University in 1997 with degrees in Biology and Spanish, and from Wichita State University Physician Assistant Program in 2000. I have served the Wichita area my entire physician’s assistant career. I maintain PA certification through the NCCPA and licensing through the Kansas Board of Healing Arts. I joined Redbud Pediatrics in 2016!

I am married with one daughter and one son who keep us quite busy with lots of sporting activities and various interests. When I have extra time I enjoy training my Australian Shepherd, yard work, bike riding, catching up with old friends, and a good game of Frisbee or Uno.

I consider it my mission to listen attentively, help problem solve, encourage good family relationships and guide you and your child to solutions that are specific to your family’s needs. I will be working with your child’s Redbud Pediatrician to maintain the high level of care your child deserves.

I consider it a privilege to get to know you and your children and to care for them as they grow.
