Higher complexities and challenges in treating a human soul and not only giving relief to the symptoms on the surface is what I thrive for. Comprehensive care integrating the physical, emotional, psychosocial and spiritual aspects is what I am passionate about. And at the end of the day relieving the emotional suffering of people what I look for.
I believe in integration of psychiatry with physical medicine as I believe there is no help without mental help. I have always been intrigued by the most complex machine on the earth i.e our human body what steered me to the medical field for further exploration of life.
