Reena Rastogi, MD, clinical director, Phoenix Children’s Hospital

BACKGROUND: Dr. Reena Gogia Rastogi is a pediatric neurologist and clinical director of the Pediatric Headache Program at Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. She treats children with conditions including migraines, concussions and post-traumatic headaches. In her free time, Rastogi enjoys spending time with her husband, Nirek, and her children, Esha and Deven.

SOURCE OF PRIDE: I am most proud of the opportunity to do advocacy for my patients. I was selected by the American Academy of Neurology to go to Capitol Hill and meet with and educate lawmakers on critical issues in neurology. I am also involved with Miles for Migraine, to help raise awareness regarding migraine and headache disorders.”  

SURPRISING FACT: “When I am not working, I love being a sports and school mom for my children. If I have free time from work, I am more than happy to be on the volleyball court or baseball field, cheering on my kids. I try to volunteer at school whenever I can. Anything to spend more precious time with them!”

SOURCE OF INSPIRATION: “Of course, my mother had a big influence on my life. She was a busy, working mother. However, I have also been fortunate to have several women leaders in my field of pediatric neurology and headache medicine who have inspired me to become who I am today: Dr. Marcy Yonker, Dr. Kara Lewis and Dr. Clarimar Borrero-Mejias, to name a few.”
