What is your clinical specialty?


Where did you go to school?

Grant Medical College, Mumbai, India. Family Practice Residency: St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Utica, New York.

What brought you to Premier Health?

Apex Community Church brought me to Dayton: Daytonians had amazing things to say about Miami Valley Hospital and Premier Health that led to my change in employment from Reid Hospital in Richmond, Indiana, to Miami Valley Hospital.

Why did you choose medicine as a career?

I know it sounds cliché, but I come from a family of physicians from my dad’s side, so I was familiar with the lifestyle and work; however, the choice was driven by a deep inner sense of being able to help others and using science to bring some form of healing/comfort.

Who are the people who influenced and/or mentored you?

My parents – their sacrifice and encouragement have gotten me this far; and my undergrad biology professor, Ms. Sardesai – her sense of belief in me that I was meant to be a physician.

What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

I love photographing a wedding with my lovely wife, Sarah (she gets to boss me around as her assistant). Reminds me of why I fell in love with her in the first place.

Where is your hometown?

The bustling city of Mumbai, India. The melting pot of cultures, where the east meets the west.

Grand Slam Tennis – Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and Rafael Nadal fan

What is your favorite hobby?
