Bio:

I grew up in the beautiful capital city of Islamabad, Pakistan and earned my medical degree from Rawalpindi Medical College. After graduating from medical school, I worked as a Medical Officer for a few years and later moved to USA with my family.

Women’s health and Preventative medicine are my main areas of interest. In high school, I worked with rural communities and highlighted importance of nutrition and promoted wellness and disease prevention. During medical school, I advocated for women education about breast cancer and easy access to better health facilities. My emphasis on the importance of patient education and their role in decision making process for their health related issues led me to choosing family medicine as my specialty.

My husband’s family business brought us to Cedar Valley area. We love the place and what it has to offer. Together, we love to take road trips and have gone all the way to Niagara Falls, Canada and Washington D.C and were able to visit almost ten states! We are planning to take another such trip to the Yellowstone National Park very soon. I like to enjoy the outdoor activities including hiking and biking with my sons and also playing soccer with them. I simply love to cook and make new dishes for my family and friends. I also practice yoga & meditation in my free time. Water skiing and exploring Midwest are the things I would like to do in future.
