I have been practicing since 1996 specializing in adult and geriatric psychiatry. I am involved in diagnostic assessments and ongoing consultation with patients and families. My focus is on neurological disorders, managing behavioral problems, and appropriate pharmacological interventions. I am also involved in providing follow-up services including patient groups which help caregivers with transitional care and efficient planning for their loved ones, facilitating quarterly educational seminars in the clinic, in-service training for staff, training Geriatric Psychiatry fellows, and outreach to minority populations. I speak various Indian languages including Kannada, Tulu, Hindi, Marathi, and understand Gujarati and Punjabi. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with her family, cooking, music, traveling, and exploring different techniques for mind-body practices.
