About me

I was born in southern India, and after completing medical school, went to the United Kingdom for further medical training. After living there for four years, I moved to the United States and have been here for the last 10 years. Living in three different continents has been a great experience both professionally and personally.

About my practice

My focus is primarily on cardiovascular diseases, a major illness responsible for the sufferings of many patients. I chose this specialty as I felt that it gives me the opportunity to improve the quality and quantity of life of our members. I practice general cardiology, which includes managing coronary artery disease, heart failure, abnormal heart rhythms and performing diagnostic cardiac catheterization procedure. My special interest is in cardiac imaging, such as echocardiograms and nuclear cardiac scans. I strongly believe in prevention of disease. I also have a special interest in the role of complementary medicine in managing heart disease. I am acquiring more knowledge on the role of supplements, complementary therapies and looking forward to practicing an integrated medicine that provides the opportunity to get the best of both worlds. My other area of interest is the use of technology to improve health care quality. In addition, I am interested in telemedicine and use of this technology to provide excellent care to remote areas of the country and the rest of the world.

How I thrive

I am married and have a wonderful family. My wife is a physician, and we have a three-year-old son and six-year-old daughter. I thrive because of them. We spend a great deal of time outdoors and with family and friends. I love to read, and I also listen to many audio books, especially while traveling. My reading interests include personal development, fitness, health benefits of food, spirituality and health care in the developing countries. I also enjoy playing tennis, spending time with my kids and watching movies.
