Get To Know Your Doctor

Why did you become a doctor?

Healthcare is a fluid and dynamic field that is always evolving but the one thing that stays the same is the Hippocratic Oath. As a child I always admired physicians because they stood by this Oath, doing no harm. Having the ability to treat someone in need has not only been rewarding but has also given me a purpose in life.  

What is your approach to medicine?

I believe in a holistic approach to medicine. As an osteopathic physician, I use the main principles as part of how I tackle each patient, specifically understanding that the body is a unit and capable of self-regulation, healing, and maintenance, all the while understanding that structure and function are reciprocally interrelated. I like to approach my patient's pain in an investigative manner. I try to step back and see what systems are playing a role in their pain and connect the dots. Pain is complex and often has multiple generators.  

How would you define patient care?

Patient care is everything. It is really important that my patient's feel connected to me. Pain can be very isolating and for this reason, its vital that patients do not feel alone in their treatment.  

Do you do any non-profit or philanthropic work?

As a South Asian woman, I find it rewarding to give back to my community by writing articles about taboo topics that I treat every day. I have written for Brown Girl Magazine on Endometriosis, Vaginismus, and dyspareunia. I have also done social media events (Facebook Live's), multiple podcasts, and been on many Healthcare panels for different organizations. I most recently had the pleasure of doing a Grand Rounds while abroad on vacation in Pakistan. It’s important that I give back to the community by doing non-profit work in this very niche field where pelvic pain specialist is so limited and not always accessible.  

What events/topics/presentations for PRM over the last 2 years are you most proud of and why?

It is always a pleasure to speak at the Pelvic Health Summit as it is a nonprofit opportunity to educate and advocate for pelvic pain sufferers worldwide.
