About me

Welcome to my Web page. I am very fortunate and thrilled to be working here at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, where the Neurology Department is made up of outstanding physicians and support staff.

Biography

I was born in England, where I also grew up and did all my undergraduate medical training. People are often surprised to hear my British accent on seeing that I am an Indian woman living in the U.S.! I moved to the U.S. to do my residency. I was in Houston for my neurology residency and epilepsy fellowship. My husband and I moved to San Diego and I did my second fellowship in movement disorders at UC San Diego. When I am not working, I love to travel and enjoy all the wonderful leisure activities San Diego has to offer. My husband and I enjoy eating out and I am always happy to get people’s recommendations on their favorite eating spots!

About my practice

I specialize in treating movement disorders, and so I spend much of my time treating patients with Parkinson’s disease. I am also trained in the management of patients who have had deep brain stimulation surgery. Another area of interest for me is the management of patients with epilepsy. However, I enjoy seeing patients with a wide variety of general neurological problems, as it keeps my day interesting.

How I thrive

I thrive by spending time with my family. I try to balance work, family life, and personal time. I love to cook and enjoy spending time outdoors enjoying Southern California’s natural beauty.
