I believe in providing comprehensive and longitudinal medical care. My role is to guide members as they navigate complex medical systems for the best possible outcomes, and my approach takes into account all aspects of a human being--not just individual diseases. I believe that a good therapeutic relationship is key to helping members comply with a care management plan, and active listening plays an important role in developing this relationship. I am a strong believer in preventive care, something that Kaiser Permanente emphasizes greatly.
About my practice
I am originally from India and moved to the United States in 1996 after medical school. I completed a residency in New York and then moved to Portland to join my husband. I fell in love with the beautiful Pacific Northwest and have been living here for more than 15 years.
How I thrive
Outside of work, I like to spend time with my family and friends. We go biking with our son and like exploring bike trails in and around the Portland area. I enjoy reading books, walking, listening to music, and traveling. I am learning to play the piano and consider myself a lifelong learner.
