About me

Welcome to my Web page. I am a physician at Discovery Plaza Medical Offices in Bakersfield, and my expertise extends to the full range of an ob/gyn practice. I have worked in Bakersfield since 2007. I look forward to meeting you.

Biography

I was born in India and moved to Chicago when I was young. I went to Northwestern University as an undergraduate. Then I attended the University of Illinois for medical school and did my ob/gyn training at Indiana University. I first became interested in ob/gyn when I was a medical student. I was working at the hospital and taking care of a first-time mom in labor. She was nervous but excited to meet her new baby. I helped with her delivery. Not many jobs allow you to experience a miracle every day. I felt privileged to share in her joy, and I wanted that feeling to continue. I practiced medicine in the Chicago area for a short time before moving to Bakersfield to work at Kaiser Permanente. I am here with my wife and two daughters.

About my practice

Please think of me as your health consultant. I believe members should have a primary role in their health care with guidance from me. I encourage preventive care whenever possible, but I am also here to help you when you become sick. I feel very honored that members entrust me with their care, and I try to treat them as I would my own family. One area of particular focus for me is performing hysterectomies using laparoscopic methods. My goal is to avoid surgery, but when it is unavoidable, I strive to perform minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery. This approach helps reduce pain and improves recovery.

How I thrive

My wife gives me strength and confidence. She inspires me to improve in mind, body, and spirit. My two daughters teach me to laugh, and they remind me not to take life so seriously. My family occupies most of my free time. My hobbies include playing tennis, traveling, and reading.
