About Me

A desire to serve and help others led me to my career as a physician. I love meeting patients and forming relationships with them that grow over time. As a family medicine physician, I treasure interacting with and treating entire families instead of treating symptoms, diseases or complications as they arise. When I see a patient, I enjoy having interactive discussions with them and, rather than telling my patients what they should do, I encourage them to play an active role in their care. I always want to empower my patients and arm them with knowledge so they can make educated decisions about their health and wellness—allowing us to work at a team on their health goals.                  

I was born in Detroit and moved to Dallas when I was 10 years old. I attended Southern Methodist University for my undergraduate education, majoring in finance. I attend medical school at McGovern Medical School in Houston and then moved to Georgia to complete my residency at Augusta University. During my final year of residency, I worked as an emergency physician. I moved back to the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex and joined USMD in 2017. I am thrilled to be back in the Metroplex and caring for patients in the wonderful community in which I grew up.

I live in Haltom City. In my free time I enjoy exploring all that Dallas and Fort Worth have to offer, spin classes and cycling, reading fantasy fiction books and cooking. I am fluent in Malayalam and I speak limited Spanish.
