Peahen Gandhi, MD, FACOG, FPMRS
Dr. Gandhi, a native of central Ohio, moved to Atlanta in 2003 for residency training at Atlanta Medical Center and received additional specialized surgical training at St Joseph’s Hospital, also in Atlanta. She joined Cherokee Women’s in 2007, having received academic honors throughout her medical training including the Berlex Teaching Award, the Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award and election to Alpha Omega Alpha, the national medical honor society.
On her philosophy of patient care, Dr. Gandhi says, “A good doctor should be listening a lot – get the whole story and not just one simple complaint. I like the quote by Shakti Gawain, ‘Our bodies communicate to us clearly and specifically, if we are willing to listen to them’. I like to think that I genuinely care and listen to my patients’ needs, and that helps guide my recommendations.”
“There is no one more important to me than my family,” says Dr. Gandhi. “We all share our successes, and I feel really fortunate to have had their support through all the years of my medical training. I really found my calling in OB-GYN, and I so much enjoy practicing here at Cherokee Women’s Health – thank you to everyone!” In her free time, Dr. Gandhi enjoys reading, classical Indian music and dance.
Dr. Gandhi was voted “Mom-Approved OB”

“Dr. Litrel was a fantastic doctor. I had my first exam with him, although at first I was skeptical about a male doctor for my GYN. But after I met him I’m glad I kept an open mind, and I couldn’t have dreamed up a better doctor. He cares about you as a person and not just a patient. The front desk ladies and nurses were very friendly and it’s a great office, very clean and not intimidating. I highly recommend Cherokee Women’s Health.”
