About

Bio

I am strong believer that patient should be looked after as a person not as a conglomeration of organs or diseases. I have completed three years training in ob/gyn from India and in internal medicine in USA .I completed fellowship in clinical ethics from U of Chicago and passed certification for healthcare ethics consultant.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
