I was born in India but I have lived in the United States for 35+ years. I completed my education and medical training on the East Coast. Searching for warmer climate, my family and I moved to California fifteen years ago. I work 4 days per week with a modified day schedule (“school-hours”) so I can spend as much quality time as possible with my children. The first of my three wonderful kids will be attending UC Berkeley this year to study engineering and music!
Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente, I worked in private practice in Baltimore, Maryland. I had a tremendous opportunity to refine my general medical/surgical skills and learn a great deal about cosmetic dermatology. I performed a variety of cosmetic procedures, participated in various clinical trials, and developed new applications for lasers.
I joined Kaiser Permanente in 1998 and have always been at South Sacramento. I enjoy working here with a team of incredible physicians. I feel that my colleagues and I provide superior dermatological care, and I would not hesitate to recommend any one of them to a family member!
I am a medical and surgical dermatologist. I have 15+ years of experience and my interests include pediatric, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. As a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, I enjoy keeping current on new therapies and advances in my field, as well as educating colleagues and patients. I am the Director of Cosmetic Services at South Sacramento/Elk Grove, which includes Cosmetic Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. I am familiar with numerous cosmetic procedures, including Botox, fillers, sclerotherapy, and a variety of lasers.
Even though I am a dermatologist, I would like to address the issue of general health, which includes sun protection, smoking cessation and maintaining a healthy weight. We all need support and encouragement around us. And often, an exercise partner helps. I have an extremely busy schedule; however, I feel that exercise is a crucial part of my day and a great stress reliever.
