Medicine has always been a passion of mine. I have always believed in hard work and compassionate care for everyone. This combination has helped me excel in what I do.
I was born and brought up in India. With a large population, and limited medical schools, it was extremely competitive for a girl to get into a medical school with limited means.
It was extreme dedication and hard work that helped me secure and graduate medical school.
Subsequently, I graduated with a post graduation degree in ENT from one of the prestigious medical schools in India.
An opportunity presented itself when my husband was offered a job in the United States. I moved here to be with him and started preparing for qualifying exams in the US with a little one on board.
I excelled in all my exams and started residency training in Internal Medicine all over again at Texas Tech University, Texas. I worked at the Thomas E. Creek VA medical center and was awarded the George Kollmar award for exemplary work with our veterans.
After graduation about a decade ago, I moved to Colorado and started working for a large physician group for a few years. Although I enjoyed working for them, my entrepreneurial spirit always wanted something of my own.
In 2013, I started my own practice to help the local community. I am thankful for the excellent response and support from our local community.
I am proud to say in 2020, Metropolitan General Practice was started to provide primary care to patients directly without insurance as a payer. It is a step towards establishing trust and respect between the patient and her doctor.
I believe in communicating with patients directly and effectively to start a beautiful doctor-patient relationship. My patients and I discuss all the medical issues and make decisions as a team. I am also multilingual in English, Hindi, Spanish and other dialects, has which has helped me communicate effectively.
I am fortunate to live in beautiful Colorado, with stunning landscapes. I spend a lot of time outdoors. I like to read medical literature to keep myself UpToDate.
I live with my amazing family, my husband, 16-year-old daughter and 2 dogs.
