“My grandfather dedicated his life to helping others. I try to follow in his footsteps every day. I think that the best way to help my patients is to listen to their story and work with them to figure out the best solution for them. I hope to provide an environment where they can feel comfortable to discuss any and all issues. I will make every effort to help address all of these issues.”
Dr. Joshi grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and is now happy to make Richmond her home with her husband and 2 children. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking and traveling. She is fluent in English and Kannada and is also able to communicate in Hindi.
