Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Welcome to my Web page! I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and to tell you about my practice. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2005. I feel very fortunate to work here because of my wonderful colleagues, patients, and the excellent working environment that continuously inspires me.
I am a native of India and did both my medical school and residency training as a pediatrician there. My family and I moved from India to the United States due to my husband’s job. I did my pediatric training at White Memorial Medical Center in Southern California and served as the chief resident during my third year of residency.
It is rewarding to see children recover and grow. I strongly believe in preventive care and education. Teaching people about health and disease is very useful because they can learn to take care of themselves appropriately. I also take the time to educate parents about the condition of their child because I find that it usually relieves their anxiety about the unknown.
Maintaining a balance in my professional and personal life is very important to me. When we travel, we try to return to India to visit my family. I eat a well-balanced, vegetarian diet and exercise regularly. I enjoy cooking, reading, and listening to music.
