I welcome you all to my clinic.
Just a small story about me:
I was born and raised in India until 25yrs of age. I finished my medical college in India and moved to USA to be with my husband. My interest in kids dated back to my childhood days. I always liked all my neighborhood kids play right in front of my house. Watching kids (but not playing myself with them), in a weird way, gave an intense feeling of being one with them in a very blissful way. While studying in my medical college, I was totally inspired by my Pediatric Attending who cared for children with utmost love and responsibility and brought a blissful smile on children's and their parents faces. That's when I decided to be a pediatrician!
Being a pediatrician never lets you forget your childhood days and early motherhood days. I can connect to my patients, so well, at all levels, a child's level, a parent of newborn level, a parent of a naughty toddler and also a parent of an adolescent. Since, I personally have gone through all these stages with my own children; I can understand the concerns of most of the parents and also behavior of their children.
Being a Community General Pediatrician, I get to see babies right 1-2 days after their discharge from hospital. Just like any of their family member bonds with the child, I get to bond too as child's pediatrician. The beautiful part of it is, child grows right in front of my eyes, just like my own kids. It makes me feel I have more than 2 kids.
I volunteer at my daughter's class and spend time knowing non-health parts of their lives. I teach relaxation technique to kids at school as I personally practice Heartfulness meditation. It surprised me how well these kids took relaxation technique so well and I feel all their hearts resonating in LOVE while doing Heartfulness relaxation. I run Heartfulness meditation sessions in my clinic, once a week. All are welcome to attend.
