Experience: 5 + years
Languages: English, Hindi, Gujarati
Mugdha Joshi has completed a degree in Nutrition & Dietetics from Arizona, USA. She has worked in an acute care setting which has given her the experience to use Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) for chronic illnesses such as PCOS, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, Cancer etc; that not only helped me to nutritionally assess a patient, but also effectively plan a Nutrition Care Process for them. The MNT interventions have helped me counsel patient’s behavioural & lifestyle modifications that positively affected the long-term eating habits and health of my patients. For me, food is medicine & that’s how I treat & manage symptoms of my PCOS patients at Veera Health. Outside of work, I enjoy learning about different cultures and languages - I have learnt French and Japanese!
I joined Veera when nothing else seemed to work for me. What I value most is the amazing team behind Veera. Never have I come across gynaecs who are as non-judgemental and caring as Veera. The doctors go out of their way to ensure her patient's mental health is good.
I realised that finding the right doctors for treating depression is really hard. But when I joined Veera’s PCOS program, the counsellors I met and spoke to were extremely helpful. Thanks to Veera, my mental health is so much better and I highly recommend this program to anyone looking for lasting solutions.
The Care Manager and the Nutritionist have helped me by advising and guiding throughout the journey. Taking this program has encouraged me to keep following the workout plan, and the proportionate and well balanced diet, towards a better lifestyle.
I was assigned a Care Manager – who lived up to the name in all senses. They put me in touch with dieticians, trainers, gynaecologists and dermatologists, all aligned towards treating PCOS and ALL its symptoms. Even after the program, my Care Manager kept in touch and made sure that I was still charting the course.
