About

Bio

I was a Pediatrician in India and moved to the USA. After the very helpful training of a residency in a busy County Hospital and the Completion of all the qualifying Examinations, I was licensed in California. I have been in active Practice for 15 years now. I love what I do : help my patients through their childhood (from birth to adulthood) to make wise health choices and stay as healthy as possible.
