Current Fellows

First Year Fellow

Reshma Patel, MD

Reshma Patel

I have lived in several states, but for the most part I grew up in Fishers, Indiana. I then received my undergraduate degree from Indiana University and attended medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine's Georgia campus. After graduation, I moved to Texas for Pediatrics residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch. I am incredibly happy to have matched at Duke for Pediatric Gastroenterology fellowship - our division is a family of brilliant, kind, and hardworking people who inspire me every day. Our leadership is incredibly supportive, fellows have ample opportunities to do procedures, and all of our faculty are excellent teachers. Outside of work, I'm usually planning my next international trip or spending time outdoors with my husband and our rescue puppy, Maya. 

Second Year Fellow

Annette Roberts, MD

Annette Roberts

Originally from St. Petersburg, FL, I completed my pediatric residency at Nicklaus Children's Hospital in Miami, FL before pursuing a Fellowship at Duke. Drawn to Duke for its intimate atmosphere and robust research opportunities, my GI interests now lie in intestinal rehabilitation and short gut syndrome. I am also a research fellow at the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) and will be serving as a Chief Fellow for the DCRI research fellowship starting in July 2024. Beyond the medical realm, I enjoy exploring the Triangle area with my husband and mini goldendoodle, Lula. I especially enjoy going on hikes and discovering new restaurants and breweries in the area. I am also a musician who loves to sing and play the piano and guitar during my free time.

Third Year Fellow

Danielle Mebuge, MD

I have been in and out of the Triangle area my entire life. I was born in Raleigh and moved to North Texas at a young age. Though I was proudly raised in the Lone Star State and attended medical school at Baylor College of Medicine, not a year has passed without visiting Durham to see loved ones. I initially chose Duke for pediatrics residency, and I have been fortunate to remain here for Pediatric GI fellowship. The encouraging colleagues, exceptional mentorship, and vast research opportunities have made Duke a lovely place to train. Additionally, Duke Pediatrics provides a warm and familial working environment. Outside of work, my family and I enjoy local parks, visiting museums, and seeing classic films at Carolina Theatre.
