Sindura Bandi, DO, FACOG
Originally from Plano, TX, Dr. Bandi lived in other Midwest states and is excited to be back in Austin. When she’s not working, Dr. Bandi enjoys the outdoors, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and cheering on the Longhorns. One of her favorite Central Texas spots is the Austin 360 bridge – “an awesome place to just sit, relax, and enjoy everything Austin has to offer – with a scoop of Amy’s ice cream, of course!”
I enjoy caring for women through the various stages of their lives, whether it’s their first preventive procedure or helping them through menopause. It is a true privilege to bring a new life into the world and become part of my patient’s family. I am passionate about preventive care and believe that the patient-physician relationship should be based on open communication to help make an informed decision.

Locations & Hours
Dr Bandi is so kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. She was great in helping us navigate an emotional situation, her warm bedside manner was such a comfort, and we so appreciated her willingness to give us options and guidance in our next steps. This was our first visit with Dr Bandi and already I’ve recommended her to friends. Thank you.
Dr. Bandi made me feel extremely comfortable and was great overall! I had the same procedure done years ago with another provider and had a terrible experience so I was pleasantly surprised how much less painful and quick the procedure was today
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr Bandi today. She was very kind and answered all of my questions and made me feel very heard and comfortable. I hope that I will have her as my doctor for delivery and definitely plan to return to her for regular gyn care!
Wonderful experience as a new patient. From check in to appointment and check out was seamless. Everyone is efficient, compassionate, and helpful. I’m super glad I have a great doctor and team at this practice.
I really appreciated the care both the nurse and dr took during my appointment. Also love the office ambiance and front desk staff.
