I have been lucky to have opportunity to work in different countries as India ,Africa Middle East and U.S.A and gained lot of experience.I have been working in U.S.A.since1991. I have been precepting residents during their rotation in pediatrics clinic . Pediatric priorities were different in each country, but i gained lot of clinical wealth and enjoyed my work every where. I came across to meet and work with , persons from different nationalities ,and culture during all these years.
