Overview

Biography

Hi y’all! I am originally from India. When I was 14, my family relocated to USA and decided to settle down in Florida. The human body and science have always been very intriguing to me from an early age. That led me to Gainesville, FL to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology and Genetics at the University of Florida. This was followed by medical school at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. During medical school, I got the opportunity to rotate through different parts of North Carolina and I truly fell in love with the state and its people. I have explored many career options during my medical training and have eventually come to learn that providing excellent frontline care to our patients is the most important aspect of our healthcare system. Selfishly, I get happy if I am able to play even a small role in improving the quality of life for our patients. This residency program fosters that feeling and the faculty here are very zealous about mentoring while teaching compassionate evidence based medicine. The residents and the attendings treat each other with respect and have generated a family like atmosphere that is apparent every day. This program offers a rich training environment with exposure to abundant procedures, rural, urban, outpatient, and inpatient training alongside serving a diverse patient population that lets me feel confident about practicing medicine anywhere in the country. I also enjoy teaching medical students and intend to pursue a career in a similar academic setting where I can remain humbled by the vast medical knowledge of my peers and continue to grow, teach, and learn from them. 

 

Outside of medicine, I love going to the beach, running, hiking, reading, or doing any outdoor activity with my wife and daughter. Besides amazing parks, trails, awesome food scene, and some of the best beaches in the country, Wilmington is also the home of Michael Jordan (the best basketball player ever). I also love college sports, especially football and basketball. I am a loyal, passionate (and sometimes obnoxious) fan of my beloved Florida Gators and UNC Tar Heels. Go Gators and Go Heels!!
