When Dr. Qalbani isn’t caring for patients, he is beating Dr. Anu Kaul in basketball, tennis or soccer, despite his lack of physical stature. He also enjoys cooking yummy food, enjoying good wine, and prefers t-shirts to collard shirts. Outside of medicine, he never lets the truth get in the way of a good story. You may catch him riding his bike, as he prefers it over driving.
