Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

“My goal is to be there for your family and I believe in the power of parents. As a pediatrician for over twenty years, I am humbled by the profession and recognize the importance of listening and treating families with courtesy and understanding. A person only gets one childhood; my duty is to consider the whole child and to optimize their well-being and development.”

Personal

“I grew up in Houston, Texas as the only son of immigrant parents from India and lived with one foot in each culture. I am married to a fellow pediatrician and we have four wonderful children. This experience has helped me appreciate the stages of life and the human condition. I don’t have one specific hobby. I enjoy problem-solving and organizing. Basically, I tinker around, fix things, and do what needs doing.”
