About me

Greetings! Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice.

Biography

I grew up in Chandigarh, a city in North India. I finished my schooling (including medical school) in Chandigarh and moved to the United States in 2006. I then completed my internal medicine residency at Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara Medical Center before coming to Los Angeles for my nephrology fellowship at UCLA. After the fellowship, I stayed on with UCLA as a Clinical Instructor. I then joined Kaiser Permanente.

About my practice

My clinical interests include chronic kidney disease (CKD), hypertension, kidney transplant, electrolyte abnormalities, and glomerulonephritis. I work closely with a team of nurses, pharmacists, social workers, and specialty staff in our department to provide our members with the best-possible care. I believe in educating patients about their disease so they can make informed decisions about their management and treatment plan.

How I thrive

In the time that I have off work, I enjoy exploring new restaurants and cuisines as well as cooking. I also like running and hiking to keep the calories off from all the eating!
