My interest in Liver diseases began with a very personal family member having cirrhosis and complications from the same. Their passing away from this deadly disease made me motivated to fight this disease and gave me inspiration to peruse hepatology as a career.
I have trained and worked as an associate professor in USA for about 15 years. Worked and trained in the best of institutions like Albert Einsten Medical Center, Drexel University School of medicine & Harvard Medical School with the brightest names in Gastroenterology & Hepatology.
My goal is to bring all this experience and training to KDAH & become the best Gastroenterology & Hepatology unit so that we can provide the best and latest evidence based care in this field.
