After graduating from Stanley Medical College, Chennai in 1987, I worked in a Private Hospital in Chennai for 17 years as Senior Intensive Care Medical Officer.

With 23 years of experience in private practice, I run a private clinic in Chetpet and I am the Medical Officer at the Urban Primary Health Centre run by the Corporation of Chennai and The Communicable Diseases Hospital in Tondiarpet.
I did my Post Graduate Diploma in Maternal & Child Health (PGDM&CH) from IGNOU. In 2007, I went on to do my Post Graduate Diploma in Health Sciences in Diabetology (PGDHSc (Diabetology)) from the Annamalai University. I am the Fellow of Council of Independent Practitioners (FCIP). This was given based on my professional experience which helps me to update day-to-day professional knowledge.
