My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I graduated medical school from India’s finest medical college The Christian Medical College (CMC) in Vellore, India. The College motto is “Not to be ministered unto but to minister.” I have always kept this in mind as a guide in the service of my patients. After over 30 years of practice in traditional internal medicine, I look forward to offering even more specialized attention to each patient in my MDVIP-affiliated practice.<br><br>

I often use online resources such as Up To Date and Mayo Clinic. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I have more time to reference these resources instantly when needed to provide your medical care. The incredibly in-depth Annual Wellness Program goes into detail way beyond what I have been able to do as an internist in the past. They are similar to Executive Physicals that are offered at top University hospitals in the country.<br><br>

I am Board Certified in internal medicine, and, in the past, provided EKG reading for New Hanover Regional Medical Center for over twenty years. I also have thirty years of experience with lung function testing. These skills are of great value with MDVIP’s Annual Wellness Program. Above all, I have taken great interest in the care of each patient, looking at the whole person in terms of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness. MDVIP gives me the time to attend to all these needs.<br><br>

Another major interest of mine is the care of back pain, and the teaching of certain exercises that I have found to help; I call them “home back adjustments”. I have helped countless patients with neck and low back pain with these exercises. The MDVIP model allows me time to demonstrate these exercises. In some patients, these exercises saved them from having back surgery and allowed a quick recovery.<br><br>

To summarize, MDVIP helps me practice a standard of medicine like never before.
