Board Certified, Pediatrics
I was raised and educated in Bombay (Mumbai), India. I completed my medical school and residency, with honors and distinctions, in one of the major academic hospitals in Bombay. During my medical school, I met my future husband, who is also a pediatrician. After completing residency in Bombay, we decided to move to New York in pursuit of higher studies. We finished our Pediatric residency at Children’s Medical center and SUNY (State University of New York), Brooklyn. I am a Board Certified pediatrician.
After New York, we moved to Stephenville, Texas, where my husband and I practiced with a medical group for over 10 years. Here I gathered a vast amount of experience and confidence in dealing with comprehensive childhood care. I developed a special interest in newborn care, asthma and preventive medicine.
While our professional lives were very fulfilling in Texas, we decided to move to the Bay Area, where we have family, and where living is such a wonderful experience. So here I am at Bayside! I am very excited to join the physicians at Bayside Medical Group. I share their philosophy in giving the highest quality care to patients. I will strive hard to meet the expectations of our patients and their families.
As a pediatrician, I feel I have the unique opportunity to be a health advocate for children, to help them make safe and healthy choices, and prevent potentially harmful diseases as adults. I take up this responsibility very seriously and look forward to tackling different challenges involving your child’s health. Being a parent myself, I fully comprehend the daily challenges of parenthood and tremendous sense of responsibility in raising our children as happy healthy and self-reliant individuals.
I speak passable medical Spanish and am fluent in several Indian languages. I am particularly sensitive to the vast cultural diversity in the Bay Area. Our two children are a constant source of inspiration and parenting challenges. My interests include classical dance, reading, cooking and outdoor activities.
I look forward to meeting you and it will be my privilege and joy to be your child’s health care provider.
