For me, health care is a very unique offering that one can provide to humanity. To make a positive difference in another being’s existence and see their joy is very fulfilling, especially in children. I would like to bring humane and healing virtues to all my patients and see them leave with a smile.

From a very early age my parents impressed upon me the idea of being of service to mankind, especially the poor and needy. My qualities of being gregarious and a good empathizer coupled with a penchant to excel in science immensely helped me to choose medicine as a career.  I was passionate about surgery, but wanted to be able to “cut-out” the disease without causing much harm. Interventional radiology was exactly such field I was looking for to help the patients in the most minimally invasive manner. I was able to incorporate my love for caring for people and interest in science to become a physician.
