Biography

Dr. Gorwara inspired to become a family physician at the age of 14 while she was in Boarding School in Northern India. She was influenced by the school doctor who visited the infirmary daily. At one point Dr. Gorwara had become very ill, and was able to observe first-hand how a doctor made a clinical diagnosis with limited resources and testing. Treating her appropriately based on symptoms and examination only. It was not only his intelligence, but the compassion he showed her as he visited her daily in the hospital for a month, that drove her to become a family physician.
