I am a geriatrician and consultant physician and currently working as a staff specialist in Campbelltown and Camden public hospitals. I am also working as a visiting medical officer in Campbelltown private hospital.
I graduated with MBBS in 2002 and then completed my basic physician training in medicine and advanced training in geriatric medicine in Westmead and Nepean Hospitals. I achieved my fellowship in geriatric medicine in 2013. I also enjoy teaching medical students and junior medical officer. I am currently working as a conjoint lecturer in Macarthur Clinical School, University of Western Sydney. I have been involved in research and was awarded the best poster presentation award in 2013 by Nepean Medical Research Foundation. I can speak, read and write four languages including Punjabi, Hindi, and Urdu. I have a vast experience in dealing with patients from multicultural backgrounds. My area of expertise include falls and balance assessment, dementia and behaviours, frailty and osteoporosis prevention. My other areas of interest are stroke prevention, polypharmacy and sexual health in older people.
I believe in healthy ageing. I am trying to achieve that through falls prevention clinic and general geriatric clinics. I am keen on promoting awareness about falls and frailty in the society so that our older people can enjoy their every moment.
