Get to Know Me

I grew up in India, trained in Michigan, and moved to Orlando from Ontario. As the first doctor in my family, I was always driven to be the best I could. As a kid, I idolized doctors for how they helped people. This self-directed impression helped steer me into medicine. I’m excited to be at Nemours, because the mission is in sync with my values.

Why I Treat Children

Kids are great. I enjoy the challenge of caring for them and addressing the concerns of their parents and other family members.

What I'm Passionate About

My passion is to provide children and families with the most caring and satisfying health care experience possible. Another passion is medical education, I enjoy teaching and learning.
