I am an internal medicine specialist, obesity specialist and primary care physician who has been in practice in the Columbia and Ellicott City, Maryland, areas for over three decades. Helping patients lose weight, improve insulin resistance and lead healthier lives is of particular interest to me. I believe each person deserves a personalized and compassionate approach to weight management and healthcare.
In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I am able to combine my knowledge and passion to help provide my patients with more personalized care and attention for their healthcare needs and goals. Caring for the whole person is an important part of my philosophy as a physician.
My practice is located in Columbia, Maryland. I draw upon my experience in helping adult patients with multiple chronic conditions, like diabetes, hypertension, asthma and cardiovascular issues, and I have a special interest in women's health.
In my decades of practice, I have developed close relationships with local specialists. I work with them, as needed, and the hospitalist service at Johns Hopkins Howard County Medical Center for any admissions. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments with minimal waiting. And I can be contacted after hours for more urgent problems.
I have lived, worked and raised a family in Howard County for nearly 30 years and remain invested in the community. I see patients from Howard County and the surrounding Maryland counties. I speak Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi fluently.
It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
