About Me

I have enjoyed living in Jacksonville since I moved here from Chicago in 2004. My wife and three beautiful daughters share a love for family and traveling to new places around the globe.

My philosophy in treatment of the complex heart patient is empowerment and accountability. I carefully listen to the concerns of the patient and together we are able to formulate a plan of care for their heart or vascular disease. I value being a partner in their treatment.

I am greatly galvanized by the concept of ‘selfless service’ namely done by BAPS charities. I organize a yearly non-profit Health Fairs at our local Hindu temple as well as Walkathons and other fundraisers for various charities and groups.
