Where I practice
Thank you for visiting my Web page. I’m an anesthesiologist who has been in practice for more than 25 years—I‘ve been with Kaiser Permanente since 1988. As part of a group practice, I work closely with many physicians with one single goal—to provide the best and safest surgical experience for our members.
After finishing medical school in India, I came to the United States to further my career in the practice of advanced medicine. I received some of the best training in general surgery and anesthesiology in New York hospitals. I then completed advanced training in pediatric anesthesia at the Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit. When I came to the West Coast to practice anesthesiology, my first encounter with Kaiser Permanente was when I chose them for my own health care.
About my practice
I joined Kaiser Permanente part-time in 1988 and soon fell in love with the team approach to health care. I’m now proud to be a permanent member of a group of professionals that strive every day to bring our members high-quality compassionate care.
How I thrive
Gardening relaxes me, walking and exercise keep me fit, and I enjoy traveling to broaden my horizons. With more time on hands, I hope to be traveling on more medical missions to care for the underserved in the rest of the world. I just returned from Argentina after serving with a group of physicians, nurses, and other volunteers providing free medical and surgical care to the most needy and underserved.
