get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

neurological disorders cover an area of medical science yet to reveal completely. It's even more complex when it happens in pediatric patients. Pediatric Neurology is one of the most unexplored fields in medicine. I love to accept the challenge by exploring this field to help the children with complicated neurological disorders.

I like working with kids because...

children are the blooming buds and future of our world. Growing up in a country like India especially in the city of Kolkata where Mother (Saint) Teresa did all her philanthropic work for children, I have always felt a higher calling to contribute in helping alleviate the mass suffering of children imposed by the poor health conditions.

I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...

the majority of patients at the Dayton Children's Hospital, Ohio faces multiple health issues, often complicated by financial challenges and lack of medical insurance. I feel these Ohio residents deserve the highest quality of medical care. I'm proud to be a part of an organization that provides high-quality care to those patients. Getting an opportunity to be a part of Dayton Children's Hospital and taking care of these sick children in both inpatient as well as outpatient settings will serve my long-term goal of career.

Dayton Children's is special because...

working here with great doctors, nurses and other staff in a professional and friendly environment gives me a high level of satisfaction.

Dayton Survey

Very professional and willing to listen. They spoke to my child as if he was just as involved with his care as I am, which he is! So it was great to have doctors and nurses that understood that.
