New Family Doctor Now Seeing Patients at Berryville Clinic

July 29, 2014

A new face has joined the Mercy family in northwest Arkansas. Shiva Tadakal, MD, joined Mercy Clinic Family Medicine – Berryville on July 7.

Dr. Tadakal received his medical education from JSS Medical College and Hospital in Mysore, Karnataka, India. Earlier this year, he completed his residency with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Family Medicine Residency Program in Little Rock.

“When my wife and I moved to the states, we met a few people who worked for Mercy and I’d heard great things,” said Dr. Tadakal. “When I interviewed, I could really feel the ambiance; they take very good care of their co-workers.”

Dr. Tadakal, a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, will be splitting his time between the Berryville and Green Forest family medicine locations. The Green Forest facility reopens Aug. 4.

Dr. Tadakal and his wife are expecting twin girls and look forward to raising their new family in the Ozarks. “What a nice environment to bring up the babies,” Dr. Tadakal added. “I love the lakes, biking, and traveling to Branson and Eureka Springs.”
