About me

I grew up in New York City and learned Spanish as a second language from Junior High all the way to Medical Spanish in Medical School. While I took many classes in Spanish, I mostly learned it from the people and culture in the Bronx and New Jersey. I am also an Indian-American and can speak Hindi also.

I was inspired to pursue medicine from my love of science. I wanted to use the science of medicine to help patients get healthier. I decided to seek out Family Medicine so I could treat people of all ages. I am still excited every time I help a new patient feel better, and I'm driven to continue providing my best care. Whenever I can connect with a patient as a teacher, partner, and friend, I feel that I have fulfilled my duties. I believe in breaking down barriers and improving the patient-doctor relationship.

Sanitas is different because we provide a full spectrum health care for the entire family. We care about our patients and want to see them happy and healthy genuinely.

In my free time, I love spending time with family and friends. I believe that life isn't about what you do, but who you spend time with. I also enjoy reading, traveling, and trying new foods.
