Born and raised in The Republic of India, I started treating patients since my internship in 2014 at the Civil Hospital (in Ahmedabad) – the largest public hospital in ASIA.
Before graduating in 2014, I completed my residency training at both the Government CL&CS Spine Institute and Paraplegia hospital, Civil Hospital in Ahmedabad, and at Surat Civil Hospital and Government Physiotherapy College in Surat, Gujarat.

I also strongly believe in Research and Development in Physical Therapy and giving back to the community to the best of my capacity. Being a physical therapist, gives me the opportunity to give back by serving my patients and providing the best care diligently and compassionately. It is my biggest professional satisfaction and boosts my mood and capacity to deliver better services every day!
My favorite way of spending my free time is at home, with my family, especially around my little daughter. I also enjoy listening to music, hiking, trail walking and biking among other activities.
