I am originally from India and trained in diabetes and endocrinology at Mersey Deanery, Liverpool. I consider myself a patient listener and an impatient seeker.
I am married and have two children who are my soul and greatest “educators”. My interests are predominantly of a quieter nature and I enjoy reading, sketching, listening to light semi-classical Indian music and exploring the mysteries of life. I love cooking cultural cuisines and share this passion with my wife who is also a passionate nutritionist.
