Professional Profile

My focus has always been on teaching patients how to help themselves and improve their quality of life.

My interest in helping others started at a young age. I grew up in India and helped my mom take care of my grandfather, who had pancreatic cancer, and my grandmother, who suffered from seizures. Helping my own family members was a rewarding experience, and I wanted to do it for others.

In India, I studied homeopathic medicine, an approach that focuses on the body’s ability to heal itself. After immigrating to the United States, I went to school to become a nurse practitioner. I worked in a family practice from 2009 to 2014. The broad knowledge I gained there helps me treat my patients here in Gastroenterology.

In NorthBay’s Gastroenterology Department, I spend a lot of time listening to patients. I am understanding and sensitive to all cultures. In addition to English, I speak and understand several East Indian dialects. I want to make each and every patient to feel understood and cared for, no matter what language they speak.

I see patients 18 and older with chronic GI conditions such as acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, and Hepatitis C.

I encourage my patients to make good lifestyle choices. I strongly believe that healthy choices often produce better outcomes. I work hard to support my patients by connecting with them and understanding their needs. I always want them to feel comfortable asking me questions. If they call my office, I will get back to them in 24 hours or less. My goal is for my patients to feel better.

Outside of work, I love to cook, knit, and take long walks. Most of all, family is my greatest priority. I strive to treat every patient as if they were my family.
