My father was a factory worker and had great ambitions for me. He spent
almost half of his salary on my education. The day I was accepted into
the India Institute of Technology, the world’s finest engineering
school, was one of the happiest of his life. Imagine his disappointment
when I quit after a year to go to medical school. It was very difficult
to tell my father, but I knew I had a passion for medicine and making
a difference in people’s lives.
The collaboration between St. Jude Medical Center and St. Jude Heritage
Medical Group allows me to focus on medical advancements, and practicing
at the state-of-the-art Knott Family Endoscopy Center ensures my patients
have access to the newest technology and treatment options available today.
Offering the latest procedures with the newest techology is a vital component
of my practice, but I believe it is equally important to treat patients
the way I would want to be treated. I take the time to listen to my patients’
concerns, educate them about their options and work with them to improve
their health and well-being. This is why I became a doctor.
