Dr Rakesh has more than a decade of experience as a physician.
He graduated with an M.B,B.S from the National University of Singapore in 2008 and after his initial years of training at our local restructured hospitals as a Medical Officer in various specialities, he decided to embark on his journey towards becoming a Family Physician.
He joined Healthway Medical in 2013 and served as the Resident Doctor at the Silver Cross Family Clinic in Yishun (Khatib), while also holding the position of Cluster Head for all Silver Cross Clinics from 2014 to 2016.
During his time with Healthway Medical, Dr Rakesh went on to pursue and successfully attain his Graduate Diploma in Family Medicine (GDFM) in 2015. He was then accredited as a Family Physician by the Family Physicians Accreditation Board (FPAB) later in the year.
In 2016, Dr Rakesh flew to the United States to sit for the final step in a series of United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE) and completed it successfully. He was awarded the ECFMG (Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates) certification.
In October 2017, Dr Rakesh moved on to setup Global Care Medical (formerly Day & Night Family Clinic) at Jalan Malu Malu in Sembawang. He served patients from the area and beyond as their Family Physician for almost 3 years.
During this time, Dr Rakesh gained the reputation of being a compassionate and competent family doctor whose diagnoses and treatment plans were often described by patients as “spot-on”.
He also earned the trust of many patients who felt they could communicate with him comfortably and this enabled them to share both the physical and psychosocial impact of their medical problems.
He is now the Medical Director and Resident Family Physician of New Path Family Clinic and continues to serve patients with the same competence, professionalism and compassion that have defined his career thus far.
Dr Rakesh is a strong believer of patient education and empowerment. Patients equipped with relevant information about their condition(s) are the ones who can make informed decisions about their own health and take the necessary steps to improve their well-being.
Dr Rakesh’s consultations are always about being thorough and targeted, never about making rushed decisions.
At New Path Family Clinic, we believe Family Medicine is both science and art. Visit us to experience holistic healthcare that is truly patient-oriented.
