About Me

I am glad to have this opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. I think it is important that you feel comfortable with and confident in your rheumatologist. I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.


My rheumatology practice on a referral basis. Your initial consultation will involve me getting to know your general health, other medical problems and all your current medications, in addition to diagnosing your rheumatologic condition. I believe that listening to details of your story is often more informative than all other tests. I try to keep very current by attending educational conferences on all new developments in the field of rheumatology to be able to meet the best needs of my patients.

About my practice

I was born in the Punjab state of Northern India. After completing my postgraduate training in internal medicine and rheumatology, I practiced for couple of years in Cleveland, Ohio. I fell in love with sunny Southern California during a visit in 1982 and decided to make it my home for good.

How I thrive

I believe in the value of some form of exercise. I like going for a long walk daily and am able to go to the gym about twice a week. I like to spend a portion of my vacation time with my college-age kids. I also like watching old movies and programs on public TV.
