Dr. Umesh K. Sab, MD

Allergy & Immunology | Male

I grew up in New Delhi, India and came from a family of fifty physicians and surgeons. My family history inspired me from an early age to become a physician and care for people. My wife and two children are also physicians and are committed to continue the tradition of providing compassionate care. I trained at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, which is the premier medical schol in Asia and moved to the USA in 1976. After training in Internal Medicine, I decided to specialize in Immunology and trained at Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation, and UCSD medical school in La Jolla, Californa. Initially, I did research in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus and subsequently in allergy disorders and asthma at UCLA. Additionally, I finished my clinical training at UCLA in allergic and rheumatic diseases. My educational background across the world, gives me a broader perspective of diseases in different cultures and varying modalities of disease management. Over the years, I have learned to blend the art and science of medicine and provide "state of the art" care on personalized basis in a warm and compassionate envionment. Patient education is a core part of my practice so that people can understand their disease and help participate in their own treatment. I have practiced in Redwood City and Sequoia Hospital for over 27 years. During these years I have successfully diagnosed and treated numerous complex and intractable cases. Ihave been the director of Medical Education at Sequois Hospital for over a decade.Read more
