Purba Gupta, M.B.B.S.
I strive to provide the highest quality care to my patients. I do so by keeping them informed and involving them actively in decision making. I am a firm believer that open communication with patients and the entire team of providers is important to deliver best medical care. In order to make a difference in their lives, going beyond just a "diagnosis" is important and I try my best to listen patiently to them and coordinating care. I thrive in a challenging environment and believe in lifelong learning by active reading, learning from experience of my colleagues and most importantly, learning from my patients.
