Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I feel fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente with wonderful colleagues and patients. I am excited about partnering with you to care for your health.
I was born in a picturesque, coffee-growing area in Southern India. From a young age, I had a strong desire to enter a profession in which I could help people – especially children. After completing medical school in India, I came to the United States to complete my residency and fellowship training in Southern California. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 1986, and since then have enjoyed working at the Riverside and Corona Medical Offices. I love traveling and exploring new places and also revisiting the serene coffee plantations in India, which are still a strong memory from my childhood.
Our team in Corona includes physicians, clinical therapists, and nurses who provide comprehensive care in a compassionate and friendly environment. In an effort to help patients in a meaningful way, we utilize our medical skills and knowledge, but also listen and respond to what patients need through counseling services and medication management. Being a child psychiatrist allows me to work closely with children and their families. It is very gratifying to see the progress that children make in treatment while overcoming their symptoms and taking charge of their conditions. I feel honored that my patients and their families have entrusted me with their care, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I strongly believe in Kaiser Permanente’s philosophy of integrated health and wellbeing, and I strive to live by it every day. I enjoy gardening, cooking, traveling, and spending time with my family. I love how my job enables me to make a difference in people’s lives. This is what motivates me each day.
