Dr. Gowri

I am a Developmental & Family Physician with over 16 years of experience and have treated over 50000 patients across the globe.

After graduating with a Bachelor’s in Medicine & Surgery (MBBS) from Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, India, I pursued MRCGP from the RCGP, UK. This was followed by my experience working in various healthcare organizations in England as a Primary care physician and different complementary specialties. I believe this exposure empowered me to design a holistic treatment approach for all my patients.

At East Surrey Hospital and St Thomas Hospital, England, my practice in Emergency Medicine entailed handling cases dealing with both patients in pediatrics, adult, and geriatric age groups about my diabetes training at Warwick university. I also got trained in acupuncture and electro-acupuncture training from the British Medical Acupuncture Society, UK. I have consistently been working on honing my expertise to provide all-round care to my patients as a Specialist in Family Medicine.

Understanding the need for a special experience to help to treat children with disabilities, I was motivated to complete a Fellowship in Child Development from the Centre for Child Development and Disabilities, Bengaluru. This enabled me in assessing, diagnosing and guiding families in addressing pediatric issues concerning their child’s development.

Currently, I practice as a Developmental Physician at the Aster CMI and a Family Physician at Canara Diagnostic Centre, Bengaluru.

I believe my journey to learn and adapt myself to the latest medical advancements and technologies is still going on. As a Family Physician, I strongly feel it becomes a responsibility to educate families correctly about health conditions & the best treatment approaches.
