Bio

I completed Medical Graduate and Post Graduate studies in India, and Fellowship in Glaucoma and Retinal diseases from UK. I volunteered with Royal Society for Prevention of Blindness in Sierra Leone, West Africa. Spent Five years with WHO in West Africa, then moved on for another 5 years in Tripoli, Libya. I came to USA as an immigrant Ophthalmologist looking for a job. Got recruited to USARMY Medical Corp and served as Major on Active Duty for three years. Moved to a teaching position as Associate Professor at Stanford University Dept of Ophthalmology. Currently am practicing Ophthalmology in Hollister, CA. I hold an elected position on the Board of San Benito County Health Care District and Board of Directors San Benito Medical Associates. My journey has ended ..
