I am a New Zealand trained Gastroenterologist born and brought up in India. I went to medical school in Almaty, Kazakhstan and can converse in Hindi and Russian. I came to NZ to undergo basic and advanced training in general medicine in Hamilton. Following this I underwent specialist training in gastroenterology in Auckland. I have a broad range of experience in all aspects of gastroenterology, with a particular interest in therapeutic endoscopy, newer endoscopic imaging techniques like chromoendoscopy, virtual chromoendoscopy, and IBD (inflammatory bowel disease).
