Get to Know Me

From the very beginning, I knew I wanted to be a physician when I grew up. My interest in pediatrics began after I moved to the United States in 1996. I speak English and Urdu fluently, and Spanish well enough to talk with patients and families without a translator. My favorite ways to relax are fishing and bicycling.

Why I Treat Children

Caring for sick children is a calling. It is the best feeling in the world to put a smile back on a child’s face.

What I'm Passionate About

I care deeply about bringing high-quality care to all patients, including children who live in smaller communities.

How I Try to Make A Difference

I strongly believe that good communication is very important for good care. I love talking to families and empowering them so they can help their child heal.
