I believe in treating every patient as if they were my own family member and solving problems together with them. I take great pride in building a strong bond with my patients and enjoy working with colleagues from different disciplines with a common goal of helping patients beat their cancer. My training in India and the United States has helped me integrate strong clinical skills with advanced technology to provide you with highly efficient and cost-effective care. I work within a team with our other specialists, pharmacists and nurses to ensure excellent communication with all members and to enhance safety for my patients. If you have questions about your care, I am happy to answer them by email, phone or video visit if that is most convenient for you.
I am from southern India and did my initial medical training there. I was inspired to become a doctor by my father, who practiced medicine in a small town where resources were poor. After residency in internal medicine at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, I was drawn to the beauty and outdoor splendor of Colorado and moved here with my wife. I worked as an internist for 7 years before choosing to train as an oncologist, mainly inspired by a close family member’s fight against cancer. I was honored to be recognized as a 5280 Magazine Top Doctor in 2020.
