Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?

Gastroenterology is a field of internal medicine which is unique in many aspects.
In addition to being a rare combination of both procedural and clinical skills, the practice of gastroenterology involves diseases of multiple organ systems. As Hippocrates is famously quoted to say, ” All disease begins in the gut”, then what could be more fascinating than the study and practice of gastroenterology.


Do you have a specialty of interest in Gastroenterology?

My interest in Gastroenterology is in motility and functional disorders of the gut. These include esophageal dysmotility, gastroparesis, functional dyspepsia, cyclical vomiting syndrome, dyssynergic defecation, small bowel dysmotility, short gut syndrome, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. I also have experience with the management of POTS and gastrointestinal symptoms.

Do you fluently speak any other languages in addition to English?

Hindi, Malayalam

What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?

I enjoy travelling, spending time with family, cooking for friends and family, exploring new campsites.
