I completed the majority of my higher education in the city of Chicago and graduated from the Illinois College of Optometry in 2012. I then completed my Residency in Ocular Disease and acquired my Fellowship with the American Academy of Optometry. I am originally from India and moved to California in 2013. I am now close to family, home and a number of outdoor interests. I am very passionate about my work and in my free time I enjoy running, reading and painting.
Upon graduation from UCLA School of Dentistry, I furthered my education with a residency in Advanced General Dentistry at UCLA. I stay abreast of the latest dental technology and techniques through continuing education courses in efforts to provide the best quality dental work patients deserve.
I believe in minimally invasive dentistry with a goal of helping patients to maintain their oral health. I provide comprehensive dental care including complete/partial dentures, dental implants, root canal therapy, porcelain veneers and much more.
I received my Bachelors degree from the University of California, Los Angeles and my Doctor of Optometry degree from the Western University of Health Sciences. I received my clinical training at private practices in Seattle, WA with Jackson Vision Clinic and in Chandler, AZ with Family Optometry. I also received ocular disease training while at Mountain Home VA in Johnson City, TN and at Hu Hu Kam Memorial Hospital in Sacaton, AZ.
I am originally from Long Beach, CA and enjoy giving back to the community. I have volunteered with organizations like the Lions Club and Special Olympics, and although I know very little Spanish, I have traveled to Mexico and El Salvador to administer eye exams.
I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I have an older sister, younger brother, and a large extended family of 29 cousins. I like exploring new food and traveling. <br />
As a Physician Assistant, I am excited to provide high quality primary care to patients in my hometown community of Ventura county. I believe one of the most important skills a provider can have is to truly listen their patients. My approach is to focus on cost effective preventative care, promote a healthy and happy lifestyle and practice evidence-based medicine. I am enthusiastic about working in Family Medicine where I have the privilege to really get to know my patients and make a difference in their lives.
I am committed to providing my patients with the highest level of care. As a physician, I understand the importance of clear communication and I ensure that my patients are provided with the information that is essential to their continued good health. In turn, I make sure to listen to their and address their concerns.

My previous experience includes private practice, clinical Director for a mental health and dual diagnoses treatment center and clinical Supervisor for a drug and alcohol treatment center. My pre and post-doctoral experiences is comprised of working at a psychiatric hospital, board and care, and skilled nursing facilities.

I have practiced as a Family Medicine Physician Assistant at Clinicas since 2008. I enjoy caring for all people and their medical concerns from newborns to mature adults. I try to work together with my patients as a team to optimize their health in a way that is respectful, meaningful and personal. It is a joy to work with the many wonderful people that come into Clinicas daily.
