Brief Profile


It has been my good fortune to train and work for many years in internationally known centers of excellence in psychiatry at Christian Medical College, Vellore; VIMHANS, Delhi; Safdarjung Hospital, Delhi; Max Hospital, Delhi; and the University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland, along with research and administrative experience at the World Health Organization, Geneva, Switzerland.


With a very broad range of clinical and academic experience as a psychiatrist for more than eight years, I now focus primarily on treating patients and consulting with other mental health professionals dealing with complex cases. I continue to lecture on mental health and related issues in many different settings, but my true passion remains the work I do with patients and their families. I became a psychiatrist to help you and others who are suffering needlessly with highly treatable mental illnesses.
