MD, FACOG, AP
Inspired by his father, Vasant Lad, to learn modern medicine and to integrate this form of medicine with Eastern medical disciplines, Pranav first completed his premed studies and received a B.Sc. in Biology. After receiving his Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), he decided to pursue academic medicine.
He spent several years as an assistant medical director for a medical solutions company where he trained U.S. and international medical students to pass the medical board exams. Pranav also joined a Naturopathic Medical School where he was trained to integrate Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Allopathic medicine, and mind-body medicine along with several other modalities, and received his Doctor of Naturopathy degree. Pranav continues his education in alternative medicine.
Pranav has also been a lifelong student of Sanskrit. His studies began in his youth when he learned to read and write in Devanagri in school. Throughout his childhood, he learned Sanskrit chants from his father. He has continued with extensive studies of the language and transmits a deep knowledge and appreciation of Sanskrit in the classroom.
