get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

It fascinated me to see the positive impact that emotional and physical nourishment and care can have on someone at an early age.

I like working with kids because...

I prefer to think of myself as an overgrown child and I find it fascinating to watch children grow into self-sufficient and confident learners. Personally, it is an endeavor that involves learning new perspectives and new things every day. Having the opportunity to partner with families and help a child to reach his full potential is highly rewarding.

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

This is an opportunity for me to contribute to an exciting, forward-thinking, patient-oriented subspecialty clinic where various disciplines work together.

Dayton Children's is special because...

In my view, Dayton Children put patients first by creating a hassle-free environment and combining multiple disciplines under one roof in order to provide world-class care.

Dr. Gupta was very thorough and made sure to explain things in a way that was easy to understand. He also valued our opinions and guided us through deciding on what to do next.

He's very knowledgeable in his job. He answers all my questions and he's very thorough. And my artistic grandson actually likes him. So I really appreciate the job that he does and the service that he provides. It is awesome. I wouldn't trade him for nothing.

Dr. Gupta has been helping my son for almost two years now as he's been going through the process of a condition called PANDAS, which is a form of autoimmune encephalitis. And Dr. Gupta has been great. He's been fabulous. Any questions, comments, concerns we have or things that we didn't even think of, he's been very thorough. My son loves him so much. Out of all the providers he's had because my son is a behavioral helper, with Dr. Gupta he's able to be very calm. My son actually loves him so much that on Hero Day he dressed up as Dr. Gupta with a little Gupta badge. I would love to have somebody reach out to me so I can send somebody that picture. But thank you again so much.
