About Raja Dhanekula, MD

Raja Dhanekula, MD, discovered his passion for hepatology while in medical school, taking care of patients with little access to liver transplant. He completed his medical training at Siddhartha Medical College in India and his residency in internal medicine at Abington Memorial Hospital in Abington, PA. He completed fellowship training in gastroenterology, advanced hepatology and transplant hepatology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.
 
Dr. Dhanekula finds it rewarding to diagnose and educate patients with fatty liver disease, viral hepatitis and cirrhosis. As a dedicated hepatologist, he is most gratified in helping patients and family members navigate the complexities of the liver transplant program. His goal is to make sure patients benefit from convenient tertiary level expertise for liver disorders here in the Greater Austin Region.

Your rights and protections against surprise medical bills

Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.
