Physician Profile

About

I was born and raised in India, but through the influence of friends, I came to the U.S. for further studies. When I visited a friend in Johnson City I knew this was the town that I wanted to live in. Previously, I had lived in New Jersey and the weather was harsh. The fact that Johnson City does not have such extreme weather patterns was very nice since I do enjoy outdoor activities. So, I moved here in 2002 and have been here ever since. My dream of being a doctor developed because of my grandfather. He always wanted me to become a doctor. I liked the specialty of cardiology because of the very rewarding nature of the field. Electrophysiology was especially appealing to me. The type of procedures involved make a significant impact on the quality of life for patients and that’s really what led me to become an electrophysiologist. I live by the rule that my patients come first, with no exceptions. It is important to put personal beliefs and preferences behind me and just treat the patient as a soul. Listening to patients is a very important part of the job, because it makes it easy connect with them as their physician and it is how I get answers that help me know how to treat them . Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have one son, and especially enjoy spending time with him doing things he likes to do.
