About

Bio

I graduated from Government Medical College Amritsar, India in 1983. I completed Medicine and Pediatrics Residency for 6 months each from Medical College Faridkot, India. Started Government Job in Punjab from 1984 to 1989 when I came to USA. I got married in 1987 to Tejinder Khaira from same Medical College via Arranged Marriage. After finishing Three year Internal Medicine Residency from Flushing Hospital Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine Affiliate New York in 1993, I took over private practice in New Port Richey, FL. The practice is a mix of Primary Care and Walk In for Urgent Care. I expanded to 5 offices by year 2000 and then started winding down to current 2 offices. I used to practice in local hospitals but now stay in office. I had my fair share of Litigations.
