Consultant, Gastroenterology/Hepatology and Transplant Hepatology
MBBS, MD, Drexel University School of Medicine, USA
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.

Mrs. Ambani, thank you from the bottom of our heart for establishing and maintaining such a wonderfully equipped hospital. Thank you for respecting the rights and beliefs of each patient without any bias and prejudice. This was a unique case in every respect and we only have you and your professionally efficient team of doctors to thank. From our end, may I request you to please commend Dr. Gaurav Mehta, Dr. Vatsal Kothari and his team and Dr. Kiran Shetty for taking up this challenge so successfully. We have made friends for life and it is only because of them that Rixon and I can reflect on this experience of 27 days as a positive learning experience and not a trauma.
