Minh Nguyen, DO

Minh Nguyen, DO MS

My name is Minh and I was born and raised in Vietnam. At age 16, Chicago became my second home, where I obtained my secondary and doctorate education. My internal medicine/pediatrics training took place at Western Michigan University School of Medicine. Personally, I am a proud uncle of two nieces and three nephews. I inherit my father's passion for culinary as I enjoy spending time in the kitchen. I am fortunate enough to visit 22 countries and hopefully more. I also have a rescued dog, Jolie, who I adore dearly. My interview day at USF, most notably with Dr. Sriaroon, left a lasting impression on me and I am very excited to join the A/I family at USF-Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital."
Priya Patel, MD

Priya Patel, MD

I was born and raised in Southern California. After graduating from UCLA with a major in microbiology, immunology, and molecular genetics and minor in South Asian studies, I moved to Florida to complete my medical degree at University of Central Florida in Orlando. I stayed in Florida for pediatrics residency at John Hopkins All Children's Hospital. I enjoy trying all types of vegetarian and vegan food, CrossFit strength training and conditioning, and world travel. I am interested in many different allergy and immunology-related fields and am excited to find my niche as I continue my training in the beautiful St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay Area.

First Year Fellows

Constance Bindernagel, DO MBA

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and completed my bachelor’s degree at Creighton University in medical anthropology. While remaining in the Midwest, I graduated from the dual degree program at Kansas City University (DO) in conjunction with Rockhurst University (healthcare leadership MBA). I met my husband on the first day of medical school orientation, and we both matched in Tampa Bay. I graduated pediatric residency at the University of South Florida in 2023. During residency, I was induced into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honors Society and was awarded the USF GME Culture Champion. I was also involved in many research projects in Allergy and Immunology (AI) and attended the national conferences, strengthening my passion for the field. I matched into AI fellowship at USF/ACH. My interests are food allergy and novel IVIG products. Outside of medicine, my husband and I enjoy cooking together, trying new foods and restaurants (my husband and I are self-proclaimed “foodies”), and going shelling at the beach.

Kranthi Nomula, MD

I am from India, and was born and raised in the metropolitan city of Hyderabad. I attended medical school at S.V.S Medical College in a town nearby called Mahbubnagar. After graduating from medical school, I applied for residency in the United States and matched at the pediatric residency program at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital/Memorial Healthcare System, Hollywood, Florida. I rotated through various hospitals in the US before starting my residency to gain exposure to the healthcare system here. One of my rotation sites was with the Division of Pediatric Allergy/Immunology at USF where I found my interest in immunology which strengthened further during my residency training leading to the decision to pursue a fellowship in the specialty. My main interests are immunodeficiency and immune dysregulation disorders. I enjoy reading books and spending time with friends/family (dispersed in the USA and India) in my free time.
