Community services and outreach programs: treatment offered with compassion and skill utilized for service of the less fortunate had been my driving philosophy in the practice of my profession.
Even though I am attached part time to a charitable hospital where ophthalmic services are tendered at subsidized rates, it has been my initiative to conduct and participate in comprehensive eye camps under the auspices of the eye clinic.
Last year two screening camps were conducted in the months of May and August, wherein an excess of one hundred patients were examined, glasses provided to many.... All free of cost... At the Good Shepard's church - Mumbai by me and my team of committed professionals. Those in requirement of further specialist interventions were catered to ....at a subsidized cost.
In April 2013, and again in May 2014 free eye camps were conducted for the elderly people of St. Andrews church. In each of these camps around 80 patients were examined, treated, counseled and had their sight restored and their problems alleviated.
Community service is an ingrained philosophy in her practice profile as underlined by the motto -
"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others"- Mahatma Gandhi
