About

Bio

A US trained and Board Certified Endocrinologist. Worked in Chicago for almost 10 years and practiced Endocrinology at Advocate Christ Medical Center, Chicago before coming to Mumbai, India. Currently a Consultant Endocrinologist at Hinduja Hospital Mumbai (Mahim and Khar). My passion is to inform, educate, motivate and empower the individual. They know their own life best so they need to know their disease best. Then I work with them as a team to achieve better care. Whether it is obesity or diabetes, most of the work is in managing a healthier lifestyle.

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.
