Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine
Dr. Kishore is very passionate about Lifestyle medicine and wellness of her patients, she goes the extra mile to fit into the shoes of her patient and help view their challenges and find a resolution towards total wellness.
Through my year long interaction, she has been working with me to change my diet, exercise, sleep, stress management and weight reduction. Thanks to her guidance, eating healthy has now become second nature to me! I also feel that talking to her about my stresses and learning to deal with them while not ignoring my health and wellness has been a big take away for me.
I love her holistic approach and leading by example!! I’m very grateful for her support and encouragement!!
Dr.Kishore is very passionate and very caring. My fertility specialist recommended her, and also suggested me to lose weight to get pregnant again with healthy baby. I was so nervous and stressed. Because a year back I had abortion around 23 weeks because of abnormal growth of baby. It was devastating! I somehow managed to maintain the same weight a year but I wondered how can I get down my weight – being obese, with thyroid & pcos and migraine issues.
Dr.Kishore came to my life with a positive outlook on life and food. She helped me to understand my food issues, along with making life style changes, handling stress properly.
Working with Dr.Kishore is like having a best friend, a doctor, a weight loss coach – all in one together. Working with her not only helped me to lose weight but gave me the confidence that I can keep my weight off. She helped me make healthy choices in life, which is high priority and we tend to ignore it. I’m very glad that I chose to go with Lifestyle medicine with Dr.Kishore.
