Board Certified in Child/ Adolescent and Adult Psychiatry
I graduated from DR. P D M Medical college in India. After moving to the US in 1991, I worked in basic neuro pharmacology for 2 years prior to clearing my licensing examinations. I was accepted at Wayne State University Department of Psychiatry and completed my Residency in General Psychiatry and then a Fellowship in Child Psychiatry at Children’s Hospital Of Michigan. My mentors included Dr. Joseph Fischoff and Dr. Jimmie Leleszi at Children’s Hospital.
After graduating from Wayne State, I was employed by Toledo Childrens Hospital until 2003 after which I became the Medical Director of the Pediatric Psychiatry Department and am involved in day to day operations of the inpatient unit. We have the privilege of working with six to seven hundred families in Toledo as well as from South-East Michigan every year. In addition, I do see patients struggling with opioid addiction.
