Curriculum Vitae

I am a family physician from India, with nearly two decades of clinical experience. I am particularly focused on the individualized care provided in institutional settings, especially nursing homes, and interested to investigate how residents’ satisfaction level and subsequent complaints (if any) help to identify flaws in the care delivery system. I am also interested on some alternative therapeutic interventions on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. I want to have the education needed to reach beyond medical model treatments and provide older adults with more holistic management that maximizes their quality of life, especially while living with dementia.
