I was born and brought up in Bangalore, India. I completed my medical degree from Bangalore Medical College. After graduating from medical school, my passion for advanced studies led me to Chicago, Illinois, and I completed my residency at Cook County Hospital. The training during my residency prepared me for life-long learning. My interest in hematologic oncology drove me to my fellowship training at the University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Research Cancer Center in Seattle, Washington. I fell in love with the beautiful Pacific Northwest and chose to make this my home. My interest in hands-on medicine, patient care, participating in clinical trials, and teaching brought me to my present job with Kaiser Permanente.
I particularly enjoy the Kaiser Permanente integrated patient care model. I enjoy the challenge of skillfully combining the very best of medical science with the art of caring for patients. I have found this to be a fascinating and rewarding experience throughout my carrier. I am very proud to be part of a team of dedicated hematology and oncology physicians, nurses, pharmacists, counselors, and support staff. Together we help patients achieve the best possible outcome in difficult circumstances. My goal is to ensure that each encounter with patients and their families is filled with quality and compassionate care, customized to their needs.
When I am not in the office, I enjoy hiking, skiing, running, and walking when the sun is shining. When the weather is gray and wet, I like to stay indoors and read. I also support the performing arts of India in Portland, Oregon. Spending time with my family is also a pleasure. When we can, we travel to diverse cultures to take in the rich history, beauty, and people of the world.
