Accepting New Patients
Professional Statement
I provide gynecologic surgery, obstetric services and comprehensive care to women. I have a particular interest in vaginal surgery and minimally invasive surgeries. I was lucky enough to move around quite a bit growing up. Having lived in multiple parts of various countries like France, United States, United Arab Emirates and Qatar has helped cultivate my language skills and cultural sensitivity. I am fluent in English , French and Tamil and am able to converse in Arabic and Hindi, especially in a medical setting. I love my job as an Ob/Gyn and truly love being there for my patients as a physician, surgeon, confidant and friend. The combination of continuity of care and the unique opportunity to become an active part of a patient’s short and long term health plans is what I believe to be the essence of good medicine. Outside work, I enjoy tennis, classical dancing and spending time with family.
