It comes as no surprise that Dr. Hiteshi’s last name translated from Hindi means “well-wisher”. Conscientious principles instilled by his family have greatly contributed to his philosophy of care, through which he helps patients achieve long-lasting results.
Dr. Hiteshi’s grandfather, a freedom fighter and physician during the Indian independence movement, developed in him an innate desire to care for others. He practices integrative medicine that blends Western and Eastern techniques as he believes this approach provides treatment options that can easily be integrated into patients’ lifestyles and promotes ongoing healing. In expressing his philosophy of care, Dr. Hiteshi shares, “each person is uniquely influenced by his or her genetics, past experiences, and current environment, so I enjoy collaborating with my patients to create customized treatment plans that allow for the best possible health outcome.”
Dr. Hiteshi is delighted to serve his native Orange County after completing medical training. He attended St. George’s University School of Medicine and he completed his residency at Mt. Sinai St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New York, where exposure to a diverse patient population prepared him to excel at Hoag Medical Group.
When not collaborating with patients, Dr. Hiteshi enjoys hiking, playing basketball, and spending time with his family.
