The right medicine for Dr. Parab
Born in the temple community of Madkai – Goa, Dr Parab completed his primary and secondary education at Navdurga High School, followed by graduation at Dhempe College and a stint at GMC (Goa Medical College).
His initial foray into the medical profession was as a private general physician at Macazana (Margao). It was a practice which gained him a lot of credibility and recognition but his real calling lay in working as a community doctor. Five years after commencing his practice, he took heed to his calling and spent the next ten years working at government institutions such as the public health centre at Sattari and the Volvoi, Hospicio at Margao.
