Hi I'm Rahul

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I married my college sweetheart while attending Brigham Young University. A decade later, we have four beautiful children and enjoy a chaotic life. I am in my last year of surgical residency in Urology. In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies and going to rock concerts with my wife, playing video games and guitar with my kids, exercising/P90X with my 2 year old, riding my bike to work when I can, and watching sports on the weekends with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a Mormon family. My father was born and raised in Punjab, India. My mother was born and raised in Cheyenne, Wyoming. They met in a bar, got married six weeks later, and had six kids. My father converted to Mormonism and we were raised in the church. I grew up with strong values grounded in the teachings of Christ and gained a personal testimony of the validity of our Church. When I was 19, I underwent a two-year missionary endeavor in the South Pacific. I labored in Fiji, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, and Kiribati. During my stay I lived with the indigenous people of these areas; I spoke their languages, embraced their cultures, and learned much. My greatest observation was the simple acts of kindness and compassion demonstrated daily by the island people. This experience really solidified my purpose and object in life, to help others. I have been blessed to find opportunities to continue to serve others since my mission, in either my own family, as a physician, and in our Church.

How I live my faith

As a busy surgical resident and a father of four, we have had to adapt. As a family, we pray together and read the scriptures on a nightly basis. On Monday evenings, we set aside time for a family night in where we have a religious lesson prepared by a family member, and then a game and desert. This is called family home evening. On Sundays, our family hangs-out. We attend church together, go for walks, and play games. As a physician, I really try to best serve my community and give the highest level of care I can. I look for opportunities to help my patients in order to meet their needs and address their concerns. I consider it a great privilege and blessing to be able to serve my community as a physician.
