Dr. Amit Parag was born in Johannesburg, South Africa to parents of Indian origin. His parents immigrated to the United States when he was two years old.
Although his parents did not have a college education, they understood the value of higher education. Through a multitude of sacrifices, Dr. Amit was afforded educational opportunities to find his calling as a pediatrician.
Dr. Amit has been fortunate enough to live in many areas of the United States, exposing him to a variety of cultures and values. Through this experience, he has hoped to impart the value of family, the value of education, and an appreciation of life to his patients and children alike.
Dr. Amit chose pediatrics for a variety of reasons – the innocence and purity of children’s minds and spirits, the genuine smiles, and the opportunity to help shape their futures.
Although dedicated to his profession, he tries to embody a balance in work and personal life. In his spare time, Dr. Amit enjoys woodworking, cycling, mystery novels, and music.
