India is a country populated by diverse people, different cultures, languages, and perspectives on life, but all middle to upper-middle class families work hard, send their children to elite schools, and enjoy a life sheltered from third world realities. While I have taken advantage of the variety of opportunities offered to me, I have never taken them for granted. To me, life in India was the result of incredible sacrifice and a lifetime of hard work by my parents. Today while I struggle to comprehend their selflessness, I realize that they taught me life lessons of service, dedication, hard work, and discipline. Medicine to me was the natural choice that put all these qualities to use.
About my practice
I moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest in 1997. I practice primary care at the Kaiser Permanente Sunset Medical Office. I value the depth and trust of the doctor-patient relationship and am amazed every day by the incredible people I am privileged to help. I continuously learn new ways to use my knowledge and skills with humility and understanding. I enjoy caring for people and their families. My professional colleagues have adopted a culture of dedication, teamwork, and human kindness that I will always treasure.
How I thrive
I try to spend my free time with family and friends. We make sure to sit and eat dinner together. We enjoy camping and days spent at the beach or the park. I also enjoy biking, movies, good food, yoga, and meditation.
