Meet Our Medical Director Dr. Leena Kodali

CHI St. Joseph and Texas A&M Health Network is pleased to introduce Dr. Leena Kodali, a board-certified internal medicine physician specializing in care for adults 55 and older. Dr. Kodali serves as medical director for the new CHI St. Joseph and Texas A&M Health Network MatureWell Lifestyle Center.

Dr. Kodali is passionate about caring for seniors in a manner that is compassionate, understanding and respectful. Her primary focus in caring for her patients is to provide specialized care that improves their health and quality of life. “I believe in the power of guiding my patients through the complex health care system, while also encouraging them to take ownership of their health,” says Dr. Kodali. “Seniors who lead an active lifestyle are more likely to lead a healthy lifestyle. So I encourage my patients to engage in healthy behaviors such as wellness doctor visits, a nutritious diet, increased physical activity and stress reduction. When addressed together, these steps can positively impact the aging process.”

Dr. Kodali brings nearly two decades of experience in internal medicine to her new position at CHI St. Joseph Health. After completing a Geriatric Fellowship at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, Dr. Kodali worked in geriatrics, internal medicine and palliative care at Calvert Memorial Hospital in Prince Fredrick, Maryland.

“The MatureWell Lifestyle Center is truly an innovative concept that will be a great resource for adults 55 and older in our community. Whether you are simply looking for a place where you can exercise and stay fit or looking for providers who understand your complex health issues and can take the time to answer your questions, MatureWell will offer that,” said Dr. Kodali. “In my role, I will be working very closely with a patient’s other physicians– whether that be their specialist or primary care doctor.”

Patients interested in meeting Dr. Kodali or becoming a patient at MatureWell Lifestyle Center can see her now at our West Villa Maria Primary Care clinic in Bryan, just five minutes away from the new center. To make an appointment with Dr. Kodali, please call 979.774.2121.
