“I believe that treating an individual is as important as treating the disease. This involves being a good listener and looking into the individual’s circumstances. As physicians, we have a wide range of options – from administering medications and performing therapeutic procedures, to providing reassurance and helping individuals make decisions about their medical care."
In 1988, I earned my medical degree from the University of Calcutta in India. My internal medicine residency and gastroenterology fellowship were completed at the University of Buffalo. In New York, I was involved in residency training with a faculty appointment at Cornell University. I am a fellow of the American College of Physicians and American College of Gastroenterology.
I am board certified in gastroenterology. I take special interest in the preventive aspects of colon cancer. My other interests include abdominal pains, acid reflux/peptic ulcer disease, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, liver disease including hepatitis C, gall stones and pancreatic disorders. I am very passionate about quality and keep up-to-date with newer innovations in endoscopy, including palliation of gastrointestinal cancers and newer modalities including Barett’s ablation.
Away from work, I enjoy traveling, classical music, art and spending time with my family.
