Biography

My grandfather was diagnosed with gastric cancer when I was young. My family spent the last three months of his life with him in India. As a kid, watching my whole family, including my grandfather, come to terms with his illness was a powerfully formative experience. It made me realize the importance of health, and the need for support in illness.

One of my very first patients as an intern in Ob/Gyn was a young woman with an aggressive gynecologic cancer. Her grace, strength and humor in the face of her illness inspired me to care for other women like her.

My patients motivate me. I feel privileged to be part of their journey, and my goal is to do my utmost to provide the highest level of compassionate care.
