I'm glad to have this opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me. I’m honored to be your neurologist today.
I spent half my life in India, but moved to the United States for college, medical school, and subsequent training. I spent 11 years in the Washington, DC, and Virginia area, but proudly call Southern California my home today. Before medical school, I did research at the National Institutes of Health but missed the clinical component of delivering care to patients—hence made the transition to medical school. I try to enrich my life by staying active in my children's lives and being thankful for each day.
Neurology is a fascinating field. There is so much that is unknown about the complexity of the brain and the nervous system. I make every attempt to diagnose your condition accurately and order appropriate tests to facilitate this. When possible, I offer minimally invasive testing and limit the use of multiple medications. I believe in treating the individual as a whole person, and try to educate you on potential diagnosis, drugs available, and possible side effects.
I believe in yoga and meditation to strike a balance between work and personal life. Chronic stress is a trigger for several medical conditions—so keeping it at bay is essential for optimal functioning. I’m honored you’ve chosen me as your neurologist and look forward to meeting you—if I haven’t already.
