About

Bio

Practicing in Traditional manner providing comprehensive care to adult and geriatric patients over 25 years. I totally believe in the WHO's definition of Health: "It is not mere absence of disease but a state of Physical, Mental, Social and Spiritual Well being." There fore my approach to manage the disease has been Integrative and Preventative. I have mentored Premed students and NPs. Besides Out patient practice I am also a provider for Hospitalist group and Hospice and palliative care because of my firm belief in health management as continuum and not a compartmentalized care
