Physician Bio

It has always been Dr. Gavankar’s personal mantra to help others and her philosophy of care is focused on delivering compassion, respect and trust to her patients.

Dr.Gavankar feels strongly that her patients should be involved in every aspect of their health care which translates to providing the education, resources and support needed to guide them through their journey toward good health. As she states it best, “I don’t take the responsibility of caring for my patients lightly. I make my patients very active participants in their health care and feel that this is the only way to provide my patients with the care they deserve.”

Board certified in both Internal Medicine and Rheumatology, Dr. Gavankar chose to specialize in Rheumatology as it allows her the opportunity to help patients of all ages as well as diagnose and treat a variety of interesting and complex conditions. She especially enjoys collaborating with other physicians which ultimately leads to providing the best outcome and care for her patients. She is very aware that each patient is unique and approaches each case with enthusiasm and vigor.

During her undergraduate years at University of California San Diego, Dr. Gavankar was a key member that helped build a medical clinic in Mexico. She received her medical degree from University of Toledo and completed her residency and a fellowship in Rheumatology at University of California, Irvine (UCI).

Having lived in Taiwan, Spain and the United States, Dr. Gavankar enjoys traveling. She loves exploring new cultures and countries and also loves spending time with family and friends.
