From the Doctor:

I understand the confusion, fear and frustration that often accompany a neurological condition or disease. I emphasize thoroughness and attention to detail. I believe in compassion and professionalism, and I am dedicated to the patients we serve. I believe medicine is not only a science but an art that relies on the cooperation between the physician and the patient.

I was born and raised in a small town in the state of Maharashtra in India. After finishing high school and junior college in my hometown, I went to Mumbai for my medical education. I received the medical degree, Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from Grant Medical College and Sir J. J. Group of Hospitals. That is where I met my wife, who is a pediatrician.

In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, running and visiting area festivals with my wife. We also enjoy outdoor activities and taking road trips together.
