What drew me to Pulmonology: Caring for critically ill patients has become my passion. It allows me to be part of a multidisciplinary team and collaborate with other specialties in order to provide the best possible care for patients. It also allows me to form strong bonds with my patients. Pulmonology-Critical Care is truly a very rewarding field of medicine, and it provides me opportunities to be the best physician I can be.

Undergrad School: Thoothukudi Medical College
Medical School: Thoothukudi Medical College-Dr. MGR medical University
Residency: Carle Foundation Hospital- University of Illinois @ Urbana Champaign
What drew me to Pulmonology: Our lives begin with a breath. Pulmonary and Critical care physicians are privileged to take care of this wonderful physiology while striving to optimize every organ system in a declining patient. I believe this is the only specialty where I can broaden my Internal medicine knowledge and practice the skills I learned in anesthesiology. I always have a positive attitude towards my patients and a strong desire to be involved in the continuity of their care, which drove me towards this specialty.
What do I like to do in my free time: Spending time with my family. Watching Netflix/Disney/prime movies. I wish to learn at least one musical instrument (may be Guitar before the end of my fellowship) in the next 3 years.
