About Me

I was born in India and moved to Chicago in my teens. My husband is from Florida and the state truly feels like home. I really enjoy gardening, cooking, going to the beaches and traveling. I am also a dancer and a yoga instructor.

I love family medicine because it helps me combine all my interests. When I am with a patient, I enjoy crafting a care plan based on their unique needs. I also strive to combine the best of both Eastern and Western medicine when advising my patients on best medical practices.
