Dr. Sumith Madhavarapu was born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He completed his undergraduate university at Baylor University with a major in Business Administration while completing his pre-medicine requirements. After college, he worked in several emergency rooms around the Forth Worth, Texas, area before continuing on to medical school at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Denver, Colorado. After medical school, he pursued his pediatric residency training at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford, Connecticut.
In 2015, Dr. Madhavarapu became board certified in General Pediatrics. He remained at Connecticut Children’s where he initially started his career taking care of hospitalized children as a pediatric hospitalist. He eventually moved to Houston, Texas, to be with his now wife and continued his work as a pediatric hospitalist.
Over time, Dr. Madhavarapu developed both an interest in sleep medicine and outpatient medicine to connect more with his patients. He decided to go back into training and complete a Sleep Medicine fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine where he trained in sleep disorders in both adults and pediatrics. He has a strong interest in encouraging healthy sleep habits and treating sleep apnea to promote good quality of sleep. After completing fellowship, he joined Blue Fish Pediatrics in January of 2021. In general, he believes in a coordinated team approach between families and medical providers to establish the best care for children.
Dr. Madhavarapu married his childhood crush just outside Austin, Texas, in 2020. They have one fur baby named Oakley who is a sheepadoodle that is both amazing and annoying at the same time. In Dr. Madhavarapu’s free time he enjoys doing various projects with his wife, exercising, watching sports especially anything OU related (Boomer!), going to the zoo, and traveling. His favorite places that he has visited are India, Thailand, Hawaii, Vancouver, and Iceland. He loves his family and especially misses his twin niece and nephew back in Oklahoma.
