About me

At Sanitas, I'm dedicated to providing comprehensive care that helps patients lead healthy, productive lives. My team and I want to ensure that you feel well cared for. In addition, you can expect me to work with you in the medical decision-making process.

I’ve always wanted to make people’s lives better and felt that medicine was the way that I could combine my interest in science with my desire to help people. One of the best things about my work is that I’ve been able to help my patients enjoy a better quality of life by providing them with the health care they need to live well. I enjoy the time spent learning about my patients’ lives outside of the exam room, which allows a stronger doctor-patient relationship to develop.

Born in Pakistan, I've lived in the Houston area since the age of 2, when my father emigrated to pursue a master’s degree at Texas A&M University. I am fluent in Urdu/Hindi and fairly fluent in Spanish. I grew up learning Urdu in my family and put my high school Spanish to use while working in community medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. I was really motivated to improve my Spanish skills so I could provide better care to a large population of Spanish-speaking patients.

Outside of work, I enjoy reading, watching tv, working on crochet projects, eating good food, and traveling with my husband and three sons.
