I am a licensed and board-certified medical doctor specializing in psychiatric medication management and addiction services for adults and children. Through my contributions to clinical work, teaching, and research, I've been recognized as a Distinguished Fellow by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. I primarily treat ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, Addiction, Trauma in children and adolescents, and substance use problems in youth and adults.
I believe in a compassionate, collaborative, and evidence-based approach to care, which considers input from all parties including the patient, guardians/parents, educators, physicians, and therapist to achieve a well rounded and informed treatment. I prefer to see patients in person, but I do provide telemedicine options.
I've lived in Arkansas since 2010, moving here for residency and fellowship at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences after receiving my medical degree in India. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and watch movies to relax.
