I am a board-certified sports medicine physician with professional interests in non-surgical orthopedics, fracture management, joint injections, sports-related concussions and arthritis management.
Hometown: Goa, India
I became a physician because: I realized during my family medicine residency that I wanted to pursue sports medicine. That way, I could help people prevent and treat injuries as well as enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle.
I am passionate about: using technology to make health care less expensive and more accessible.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is: helping people to adopt healthy lifestyles and not always settling for a quick fix.
One of the best things I have done for my health is: meditate. Mental well-being is as important as physical health.
If I wasn't a physician, I would be a: food critic because I love to travel and love to eat all types of food!
