Dr. Venkat is involved with clinical research studies related to pediatric liver disease and liver transplant outcomes. She is an active co-investigator in iWITH, a clinical trial of immunosuppression withdrawal in stable pediatric liver transplant recipients. Her focus has been on the long term graft health, safety outcomes and reversibility of rejection during immunosuppression withdrawal. Her clinical work with the liver transplant program has led to publications in challenging pediatric liver transplant populations including primary sclerosing cholangitis, re-transplantation, and strategies to improve patient adherence to the medical regimen. Dr. Venkat is a co-investigator in the Childhood Liver Disease Research Network (ChiLDReN) and has worked collaboratively to further understand the natural history and outcomes of children with cholestatic liver diseases such as biliary atresia and Alagille syndrome. This collaboration includes her role as site lead in PRIME, A Phase I/IIa Trial of Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) Therapy Following Portoenterostomy in Infants with Biliary Atresia.

experience was great as usual.
We waited months for this appointment due to the lack of availability anywhere other than 1.5 hours away from our home and I was disappointed by the service we received at our appointment. The doctor did ask a lot of questions to try to understand our son's medical history, but provided little to no solution other than telling us "he will grow out of it, so keep doing what you are doing". I tried explaining to her that what we were doing was clearly not working since our son was still in pain. I started to get upset and cry because as a new mother, I am frustrated and feel terrible to see my son in constant pain and the doctor stared at me as if she was annoyed by me being upset and my push back to her lack of response. We felt as if she was belittling our situation.
all the staff is always good
Dr. Venkat answered all of our questions.
it was the first time seeing her and that didn't bring any changes in my sons health condition, just waiting for some more days as she said it was post viral. she's not bad.
best office and place ever no complaints!! I am so pleased and relieved thank you!!!
They always have his current information to best serve his health care needs and that is very comforting.
All went well
Very positive experience. Dr. Venkat and Lyndsay are very professional and capable!
the greatest care
I would appreciate the provider washing her hands upon entering the exam room prior to touching our baby. That would be a peace at mind of good hand hygiene.
The overall experience was very pleasant. Dr. Venkat listened to everything and discussed our concerns.
Care provider was friendly and got straight to the problem.
the entire experience visiting Children's Hospital exceded our expectations.
