I was born in Bhutan which had then just embarked into modern development. I feel privileged and lucky to have been able to study medicine in spite of my financial constraints.

After graduating as a physician in India, I was passionately serving to advance benefit of modern medicine to all section of Bhutanese population by providing direct service, health education, advocacy and leadership. Unfortunately, I had to leave Bhutan in 1992, when one fifth of the total population of predominantly Nepali speaking citizens where evicted. I worked from the very inception to establish very highly acclaimed health care system for Bhutanese refugees working with UNHCR and Save the Children, U.K. in Nepal.

In my current incarnation, I am a Qualified psychiatrist proving compassionate and quality adult psychiatric out patient services to a mostly immigrant and refugee population at the Center for International Health and to a regular American population at Regions Behavioral Health in Maplewood. It gives me immense satisfaction to provide much needed services in my new country.
