I am originally from India and settled down in the Portland area in 2003. I work part time as a Clinician, and part time as a Faculty member in the residency program teaching residents and medical students.

I believe in a holistic approach to patient care - emphasizing the role of social, mental, and environmental factors influencing health and wellbeing.

I am certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and I am an active member of the American College of Physicians.

Our Clinic is recognized as a fully functioning Medical Home both at the State and National level.
