Pioneer in starting consulting practice by setting up of own Surgical Nursing Home for Scheduled Castes (ST) in Ahemdabad in 1982. It was probably trendsetter to start post graduate surgical practice in Gujarat State, when it was considered as big challenge. Feels satisfied that many medical & surgical post graduates from SC/ST had established their own Nursing Homes and set the examples of self employment in medical practicing field.
