Cheshil Dixit, M.D.
Cheshil Dixit, M.D.

Cheshil was born in Detroit, MI before eventually moving and settling in Ocean Springs, MS. He earned his medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine and stayed at the University of Mississippi Medical Center for his Internal Medicine residency.

Why Allergy/Immunology?: The field focuses on effective outpatient care leading to great improvements in quality of life for all patients, from childhood through adulthood. I find it immensely satisfying to play a role in improving my patients' health.

Why SLU?: Our program balances pediatric and adult exposure, allowing for well-rounded training for the entire spectrum of allergic and immunologic diseases.


Ravneet Donegan, M.D.
Ravneet Donegan, M.D.

Ravneet earned her medical degree from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, TN. She completed a Pediatrics Residency at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, MO. She also served as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine and Children's Mercy Pediatric Urgent Care attending for 4 years before returning to graduate medical education for sub-specialty training in Allergy and Immunology. 

Why Allergy and Immunology?: This is field that has the potential to improve the quality of life for many people via innovative and effective treatment methods. There is much to be learned with fascinating research and clinical opportunities.

Why SLU?: I knew the caring and motivating learning environment created by the SLU Allergy and Immunology team would allow me the best opportunity to further any knowledge regarding this topic.


Neha Yakhmi, M.D.
Neha Yakhmi, M.D.

Neha is a Midwesterner, growing up in Indianapolis. She went to college at Washington University in St. Louis,  medical school at the University of Toledo, and then decided to do something different and complete an internal medicine/pediatrics residency at the University of Texas at Houston.

Why Allergy/Immunology?: It was a field I knew nothing about prior to residency, but I found allergy interesting and immunology so fascinating. I was also glad to find a field where I would be able to continue to see both adults and children.

Why SLU?: SLU's program has a perfect balance between adult and pediatric exposures, and a small faculty group who is very invested in the program.
