About

Bio

I was born in India but then spent my first twelve years of life in Kenya. After moving back to India, I finished my high school and medical school there. After getting training in rotating internship and surgery I migrated to United States and finished the rest of my training here. After obtaining a license to practice medicine in California I was a General Practioner for first five years. I was then offered an opportunity to join a medical group as an urgent care physician. After practicing there for more than 13 years I had to take an early retirement due to medical disability. This virtual medicine has given me now an opportunity to continue to provide my services to the needy.

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.

Not true.: There is no such thing. In fact it is very difficult to find out about twins without a proper examination by a professional. Even then it might take an ultrasound for correct diagnosis.

Moderation good.: Excess amount of alcohol can speed up the aging process. However in moderation it is good for health. Moderation means two drinks a day for males and one for females. So moderate drinking should not hurt your career.

Not normal: Thick white milk discharge is more likely from yeast infection especially if associated with itching. Try over the counter medicines like monistat. If not better in a week see family doctor or Ob / Gyn. If you have missed a period then that is a sign of pregnancy. If so perform a home pregnancy test.
