Field of Clinical Practice



I firmly believe that patient care is a privilege. Listening and responding to a patient's unique story and needs is critical in helping the patient and his or her family on their cancer journey. I chose this specialty because it combines the best of cutting-edge research with patient- and family-centered care.

Originally from Tanzania in East Africa, I am fluent in Swahili, Hindi, Urdu and Gujarati. My areas of expertise include treating esophageal, gastric, pancreatic and colorectal cancers.

Conditions I Treat:

- Esophageal cancer
- Gastric cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Liver cancer
- Bile duct cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Anal cancer
- Neuroendocrine cancer
