Acerca de mí
Welcome to my Web page. I am glad to have this chance to introduce myself to you and to tell you about my practice. I am fortunate to be a physician at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful patients and the caring staff I work with. I look forward to taking care of your health.
I was born and raised in India. I came to the United States in 1974. I completed my training in child and adolescent psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and I worked there as a staff member before moving to California in 1986. I joined UC San Diego as a faculty member at the department of child psychiatry for four years, before joining Kaiser Permanente Medical Group in 1990.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
I specialize in the practice of child and adolescent psychiatry. I work with other therapists as a team member to assist families in understanding their child's behavior and emotional problems, and how to handle them. I see patients for diagnostic evaluations and medication management. I provide regular follow-up for medication management and to evaluate the progress. I believe that working with parents and engaging families in counseling and education is equally important and as helpful as using medication in the treatment of children and adolescents.
Cómo vivo bien
I thrive by keeping a good balance between busy practice and good health through exercise and yoga. I believe in regular use of exercise to keep our bodies and our minds in good health. I thrive by learning something new every day, sometimes from the children that I see, from the parents I talk to, and from my colleagues. I thrive by stimulating my mind with this new knowledge and making use of it in my practice when appropriate. I also thrive by finding satisfaction in taking care of patients who are challenging and in need of help. This is why I chose to be a doctor in the first place. Most of all, it is important for me to help my patients thrive!
