Assistant Professor (HS); Attending Pathologist
Cytopathology; Surgical Pathology
I have board certification in Anatomical/ Clinical Pathology and Cytopathology along with fellowship training in Gastrointestinal Pathology. My clinical service responsibilities include interpretation of Cytopathology, Gastrointestinal, Liver, Pancreato-biliary, general Surgical Pathology biopsy and resection specimen. I am also involved in providing intra-operative frozen section service. I contribute to the autopsy service as well.
My areas of interest include fine needle aspiration Cytopathology, gastrointestinal and liver Pathology. The Cytopathology fellowship training at Wayne State University involved high-volume and diversity of specimen. It helped me acquire diagnostic acumen under the guidance of experienced mentors. The Gastrointestinal Pathology fellowship training at Indiana University has a large number of in house and consult cases. The Hepatology / Liver Pathology service is one of the largest divisions in the country with enormous breadth to clinical expertise, along with a large patient and procedural volume, thus contributing immensely to the learning experience.
I enjoy teaching medical students, residents and fellows during the microscopic sign-out sessions and gross evaluations. I would also be giving core curriculum lectures.
I look forward to pursuing clinical research and collaborative multi-disciplinary endeavors in Liver, Gastrointestinal Pathology and Cytopathology.
