Background I was born in a small town in Northern India in the foothills of the Himalayas. Growing up there, I had the privilege of being exposed to different cultures and religions. We participated in almost every community's festivities. I learned how to not only respect cultures that are not my own but also that the common thread of humanity binds us all together. I completed my schooling at Carmel Convent School in the city of Chandigarh, India. I did my undergrad at Government College in Chandigarh in India. I joined Govt. Medical college in Patiala, India in 1985 and graduated in 1990. I came to the United States 13 years ago and did my residency in Internal Medicine at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. It was a wonderful experience. I joined Kaiser Permanente in July, 2002. As a physician, my goal is to do the best I can for my patients and to help them to be healthy both physically and mentally. I especially try to focus on preventive care and sometimes spend more than 50% of the visit discussing this. I enjoy medicine and am a person who believes that learning does not stop at the end of residency. I learn something new everyday from my patients, my colleagues and medical journals and books. I am an Internist, a physician who specializes in taking care of adults. I feel blessed to be a doctor; it's a profession through which one tries to make other people's lives better and thus enriches one's own life. I like to work at Kaiser Permanente because of its focus on prevention. I also appreciate the many chronic disease management programs at Kaiser Permanente. I feel these help my patients with chronic diseases lead lives as close to normal as possible
