About me

Dr. Aparna Dandekar Board-Certified Family Physician Ayurveda Wellness Practitioner Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine My heritage I was born to parents who emigrated from India and settled in the United States in the 1960s. Forward-thinking and worldly in their outlook, they made it a point to infuse the ancient teachings of Vedanta, to be applicable to modern life. Raised in this open-minded, bicultural household, I was able to appreciate the values of both East and West and identify equally with both. My career Before I started focusing all of my energy on my patients at Three Rivers Ayurveda in 2013, I worked as a physician at Kaiser Permanente from 2005 to 2013. I have been seeing patients at the Tang Center for Student Health at the University of California in Berkeley since 2008, and I serve as a regular guest lecturer at the San Diego College of Ayurveda, where I received my training as an Ayurveda Wellness Practitioner. My family In addition to being a healer, I love being the mother to my two children and a wife to my husband Abhay, who is a pediatrician. The four of us live in the East Bay Area. As a family, we love the outdoors. Now that the kids are older we enjoy riding our bikes, camping and river-rafting or just working in the yard together. Sometimes, just staying home, watching the kids perform quirky impressions and laughing till our sides ache is the best way to spend an evening at our house.
