Professional Background

Dr. Divya Danda earned her medical degree in 2013 at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in Lubbock. She completed her Internal Medicine residency training at The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston in 2016. Before joining Kelsey-Seybold in August 2019 as an Internal Medicine hospitalist, Dr. Danda was an assistant professor of medicine at Texas A&M College of Medicine and a senior staff physician at Baylor Scott & White Health in Temple, Texas.

Fun Facts

The most exotic/interesting place Dr. Danda has visited was South Africa in 2017. She loved seeing animals in their natural habitat during multiple safari experiences. Her favorite book is “The Kite Runner.” Her guilty pleasure is eating different types of French fries.

My main goal is ​to provide patient-centered care, which includes listening to their needs, educating them on their clinical condition, providing different therapeutic options, and involving the patient and their loved ones in the decision making process for therapies. It's important for me to be responsive to and respectful of individual patient needs and values.
