Personal Profile

I have a holistic outlook towards life and this reflects in my clinical practice.

My passion outside of medicine is in understanding the similarity between science, mythology and philosophy. I have been invited to lecture on my understanding of these sciences.

The videos are open to public on YouTube (shashank.chitgopkar)

I also enjoy playing cricket in the local league.
