Welcome. I am pleased to offer this Web page as a way to provide you with helpful medical information as well as a way for you to learn more about me. I hope you find this site helpful, and that you’ll feel better informed and more engaged in your health care.
I was born in India and completed my education there in a city called Vizag. Upon graduating from medical school, I moved to New York to begin my surgical residency. Shortly after finishing my training in New York, my family and I moved to Los Angeles and I began my surgical career at Kaiser Permanente.
When deciding where to begin my career, several things about Kaiser Permanente appealed to me, especially the distinctive and collaborative system where patient care truly comes first. It’s the main reason that I have stayed with Kaiser Permanente for more than 30 years. I have been fortunate to fill many roles here over the years. Since 1981, I have been training surgical residents from UCLA. I am an assistant clinical professor at UCLA. For many years, I served as chief of surgery in Panorama City. I have had the opportunity to practice all aspects of general surgery, including laparoscopic and open surgeries. I feel honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and always strive to provide them with best possible care.
I enjoy traveling, and I stay healthy by walking and using stairs.
