Respectful - Experienced - Empathic

My mission is to help you with the best of my expertise. As your obstetrician or gynaecologist, I tap into my vast experience to offer you continuous care on your journey.

Family history

My father was an Anatomist specialised in clinical genetics who set up a network of IVF centres in India. So my brother and I grew up in a medical and women’s health-oriented family. It was a natural next step to do medicine and to specialise in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

The start of my medical career

I did my MBBS from MGM Medical College in Indore, India. Through a highly competitive national entrance exam, I got into the O&G Post Graduate Program and was offered a place in KEM and Wadia Hospitals in Mumbai, one of the most sought-after postgraduate training hospitals in India.

I did a year of rural work in a 15-bed hospital, helping people with snake bites, gastroenteritis, or respiratory tract infections. In addition, we also had a small birthing centre and an antenatal clinic.

After that initial experience, I pursued training in O&G in Mumbai and gained more depth in surgical experience and vast experience in high-Risk Obstetrics; a strong base for my future work that I will always be grateful for.

My move to Australia

I came to Australia in 2007 and – like all overseas doctors – navigated through the Australian system. It involved the RANZCOG fellowship exams to get FRANZCOG along with a few years of working as a registrar, to then be allowed to practice O&G in Australia.
In the meantime, I also appeared for the UK O&G exams (MRCOG) which I cleared in 2016. So, now I hold O&G qualifications from India, UK, and Australia.

Start of private practice

In 2020 I decided to start my private practice. I believe that it adds a dimension to working with you as a patient, giving continuity of care. In women’s health and obstetrics, it helps you as a patient, to have one specialist doctor who is responsible and accountable.

I now get to use what I learned when I saw my own father manage his work in the private health sector. It has encouraged me and supported my decision.
