Dr. Priya Parmar
Board Certified Psychiatrist
I was born in Rhode Island and raised in West Virginia. Growing up in an Indian family in a predominantly white area, I learned to navigate through different cultures. I was blessed with a strong curiosity, intelligence and a photographic memory.
Unlike some people who have gone on to become doctors, my life was not restricted to academics. I broadly experienced life with friendships, travel, and experience in a variety of social milieus. Following high school, I spent a year in Delhi studying Ancient Indian History and Eastern Philosophy at St. Stephen’s University.
Returning to the U.S., I finished my B.S. in Biology, then studied Cultural Anthropology at UCLA. Following this I completed my medical doctor (M.D.), residencies and work experience as described below. I have had the experience of joining a blended family and giving birth as well as raising children in this lovely area.
