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.

The nurses and doctors are very awesome. Always treat us with courtesy, and always answer all my questions. I really appreciate them very very much.

Dr. Gupta could not be any better with my daughter. He is engaging and incorporates humor when appropriate. I was initially concerned that my daughter would not do well with a male provider but I couldn't have been more wrong. Dr. Gupta earned her trust and developed a bond with her quickly.

This provider is a great listener, definitely understands or tries to understand where my child is coming from. Also doesn't really think it's a great idea to push pills down her throat, so he always tries to find an alternative solution, which is if it's something to suggest on what to talk about in therapy or maybe lowering a dose or maybe adding something else, but not really just like, okay, I'm going to put you on another medicine and then see you later, which we have had experience at our regular provider before coming to see this doctor.

Dr. Gupta is the best psychiatrist my child has ever been to.
