I was born in Pakistan and grew up in its culturally rich environment. After completing medical school I moved to the United States and completed my medical training at Mercy Hospital in Chicago. I chose to establish my career at Kaiser Permanente. It has a history of providing excellent medical service and I am proud to be a part of its success. I look forward to serving my patients with a professional and personal touch that complements the tradition of Kaiser Permanente.
