Physician Profile


I am originally from India, but I came to the United States to complete my residency and fellowships. While searching for a job, I was particularly impressed with the staff at Norton Community Hospital and their desire to build a pulmonary medicine program for a community in need. This region provides a wholesome area to raise my family, outdoor recreation and a gentle mountainous terrain that reminds me of home. I look upon my father as my rock and my coach. Generous with his wisdom, he helped me deal with the challenges of becoming a physician. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to have my patients and their families appreciate my care. My philosophy for treating patients stems from a quote by William Osler: “The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.”
