Atrium Experts |Meet The Team |Dr Shilpa Paradkar

Meet the team

Clinical excellence is essential for great medical outcomes, but it is not sufficient. We believe that the bond of trust between doctor and patient, lost in recent times, needs to be rebuilt. It is this commitment to service that ultimately translates into great experiences for our patients.

SHILPA PARADKAR, MD

I was born and brought up in Delhi, and you’ll know me as the colorful Indian doctor in the practice. I believe fervently in primary care and all that it stands for -- the management of acute and chronic issues, preventative medicine, and health education. I want you to see me as a champion and as a supporter in your quest for physical and emotional well-being. Before co-founding Atrium with Julie, I was the Medical Director of Yaffe, Ruden & Associates on the Upper East Side. I received by MD in Internal Medicine from Mt Sinai in NYC.

I came to the U.S. in 1993 and went to Medical School at New York Institute of Technology and completed my Residency in Internal Medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital in NY. I have 2 passions in my life—medicine and my family. I also enjoy music, dancing, and reading.

Ross Morgan

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, I attended the nearby University of Pittsburgh for undergraduate studies before moving to New York City to earn my Masters of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Pace University. Prior to joining the team at Atrium Medical, I worked in primary care medicine with additional experience in HIV prevention and addiction medicine. I am an advocate for wellness, and I encourage my patients to take an active role in their health.

I have lived in New York City for over 8 years, where I got a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies at Pace University-Lenox Hill Hospital in 2012. I have worked in Primary Care since then, and love engaging with my patients in promoting wellness. In addition to working at Atrium Medical, I am Assistant Clinical Professor at my alma mater. In my free time, I enjoy exercise and have completed four marathons.

Karim Wahib

We are excited to welcome Karim from OuchMed to Atrium. OuchMed is the premier orthopedics and sports medicine specialist in NYC (not an Atrium entity). From Karim: "Being an avid athlete, I was naturally drawn to the field of Orthopedics and Sports. Because I was at the side of fallen teammates even as a young child, I understand how an injury can side-line anyone, so I explore all avenues of treatment options to get my patients back on track.
