About Me

It is a great pleasure to introduce my practice and myself to you. After having been in private practice, I am very glad to have joined Kaiser Permanente. Wonderful members and great colleagues make medical practice fun at Kaiser Permanente. I am looking forward to helping you maintain your health.


I was born in India and came to the United States for my higher education. I became interested in medicine and was able to pursue my dreams in this great country. I received my medical degree from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans and finished my dermatology training at Tulane University School of Medicine. It has been wonderful raising my family in the South Bay. My wife and I enjoy taking care of our older son who has autism and our younger son who has incredible energy and talent. We have lot of fun playing sports, going to the gym, reading, and traveling. I am very thankful to Kaiser Permanente for giving me the opportunity to establish balance between personal life and work.

About my practice

I take care of our members who have general and cosmetic dermatology concerns. Skin cancer, mole checks, acne, eczema, and psoriasis are a major portion of my practice. I see members in all age groups. I also offer Botox® and filler injections (such as Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Radiesse®) at our cosmetic clinic to improve wrinkles and appearance.

How I thrive

I live a healthy lifestyle by being positive and constantly trying to improve myself in my personal and professional lives. I try to keep fit physically by going to the gym and playing sports with my kids. Reading, travel, friends, and family keep me busy.
