Hobbies and Interests

Dr. Govind relaxes by listening to music, from classical (Bach and Indian) to opera, jazz and even rock, especially Frampton. She also enjoys drawing and painting. For the last decade oil painting has really picked up! Cooking and gardening too are a favorite!
For sports. Dr. Govind is an avid “spectator” when it comes to NBA, NFL, NHL, and cricket.
But not baseball.

Art Work by Govind

Dr. Govind is not only a Physician but an Artist in her own right. Over the last decade, her love of oil painting has grown impressively. She has now produced many of her own works of art which she is happy to share here with her patients.
