I was born and raised in India, educated under the able guidance of my doctor parents who taught me that success is possible if you work hard and dedicate yourself to it. They taught me by example. Every satisfied patient that left their doors was a standing example of their dedication towards their work.With these ideas in mind, I went to medical school at M.S. Ramaiah Medical College, which is among the top 5 private medical schools in India. After graduating at the top of my class (1st division), in my constant quest for improvement, I decided to travel to United States to pursue further training in the field of my passion – Surgery. While going through general surgical training at New York Presbyterian Queens Hospital, I discovered a growing interest in Plastic Surgery.
