What is my background?
I have been involved in full time private practice at the MARSAI Clinic, Belmont Hospital, Carina since 2011. I have full admitting rights at Belmont Private Hospital. The details of the hospital are available at: http://www.belmontprivate.com.au
I received my MBBS in 1986 (India). I commenced my psychiatric training whilst working with the Indian Navy in 1995 and completed my Specialist training in 1998. I worked as a Consultant Psychiatrist between 1999 and 2003 in various Naval Psychiatry centers across India. I have extensive military psychiatric experience, having worked with the Indian Navy for over fourteen years.
I relocated to Australia in 2004 and have enjoyed extensive public and private involvement as a Senior Staff Specialist across Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania. I completed FRANZCP in 2006.
Having worked in both clinical and senior leadership positions in the public arena in two different states, I have gained valuable experience in the Australian system. I also have been affiliated to University of Queensland and Griffith University as a Senior Lecturer in Psychiatry. I work closely with psychiatric Registrars and mental health professionals engaged at Belmont Hospital to satisfy the clinical needs of my patients.
My specialty has evolved into Adult ADHD, an area I take a special interest in. I also take an active interest in holistic care with my patients, and work closely with them to together work on their journey to recovery.

MBBS, FRANZCP, MD (Psychiatry)
I have developed a special interest in Adult ADHD, and work with my patients to assist them to understand their diagnosis and treatment. I believe in working closely to work through the process to enable my patient to have awareness and move forward with their treatment to a point where they are comfortable and in a position to move forward in all aspects of their life. ADHD can affect many areas of life, and once diagnosed and treated, this can empower a person to take the steps forward they may not have previously been able to manage. Personal and professional spheres of life can be better managed through appropriate treatment.
I also provide services related to general adult psychiatry, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, neuropsychiatric conditions, and telepsychiatric services for rural and remote patients.
