Dr. Gupta is an Endocrinologist with more than 25 years of experience. Initially, he trained in India where he had extensive experience with a variety of Endocrine disorders, including pituitary and thyroid conditions. He then participated in an Endocrinology Fellowship at the University of Minnesota where he conducted research on pancreatic islet cells. Endocrinology is Dr. Gupta's passion due to the intricacies of the Endocrine systems that do so much in our bodies. He finds that there is a lot of confusion and uncertainty amongst people with endocrine disorders and he aims to help patients understand their medical condition(s) and work with them to find the best possible treatment. He is also a diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine. Dr. Gupta has lived in Asheville, NC, for almost 25 years. His wife runs a Neurology practice locally and their two sons were raised in Asheville. Outside of work, he likes to garden, hike, and paint. Recently, he picked up pickleball as a new hobby.
