About Me

Practicing the science of medicine is an art. To me, every patient visit is an opportunity to bring a positive change. I am specialized in family medicine and addiction medicine. I enjoy listening to my patients and try to provide support at each step of their care. I see patients with acute medical conditions, like cough, sore throat, fever, joint conditions, and chronic diseases, like diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, asthma, lung, kidneys, and heart conditions. I also perform common office procedures like skin biopsies, cyst removal, and joint injections. I like to empower my patients to make informed decisions about their health and well-being. I believe in a provider-patient partnership based on trust, mutual respect, and strong clinical and professional medical skills. I try to provide the medical solutions in a quick, efficient, and cost-effective manner, considering patient’s social, physical, and emotional needs. I believe health care is constantly changing and like to update my knowledge and skills with ongoing learning and continued medical education. In my spare time, I like to read books, play tennis and cricket, travel, and spend time with friends and family.
