Member Since :
Dr. Gaurav Gupta MD, Pediatrician
Thanks for showing interest in browsing through my decidedly informal CV! I am a child specialist, a skilled clinician with extensive training in handling not only common OPD problems in babies but also for providing emergency care in sick infants and children. For this I have trained in PGIMER, Chandigarh, the premier tertiary care pediatric institute in the region.
I did my MBBS from BJ (Government) Medical College, Pune (Maharashtra) in 1994 and subsequently completed DCH from the same place. Thereafter I cleared DNB Pediatrics (National level MD) examination in May 1998. I am a member of Indian Academy of Pediatrics, as well as the American Academy of Pediatrics (International Section)
Since my DNB I have worked as a SENIOR RESIDENT (post MD experience) in Government Medical College, Sector 32 and then in PGI, Chandigarh (a total of over 4 years!). I have written quite a few research papers including three INTERNATIONAL Publications.
I have started my own practice in Mohali from Jan 2003. I am also working as an Empanelled Consultant at FORTIS Multispeciality hospital & Apollo Clinics, Chandigarh. I have a personal website where you can find more information about us, www.charakclinics.com
For the latest topics in child care, please read my blog at www.charakclinics.com/blog.html
I am also doing online medical consultations at Kasamba, you can check my highest 5 star rated kasamba profile and ask me any questions that you may have on any medical topics here online
PARENT EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO CHILD HEALTH.
My OTHER LIFE
My wife is an Eye specialist, previously working at PGI. She is likely to join Charak Clinics soon. I write a bi-monthly column in Indian Pediatrics (the OFFICIAL Journal of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics). I belong to Delhi; my dad is also a Child Specialist and has retired recently as Major General from Army Medical Corp.
I have also written a few articles on parent education, published in the newspapers like Indian Express, Hindustan Times and Dainik Bhaskar.
In my spare time I like to play tennis and get out of the city for brief vacations to recharge myself; so that I am able to provide the best possible care for your children!
