Interests/Achievements: Neel was born in Oklahoma City, but grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana with his younger brother. Neel wanted to experience how life was in South Louisiana, so he attended Tulane University in New Orleans where he majored in cell and molecular biology. After college, Neel went back home for medical school at LSU-Shreveport. After getting a full dose of Louisiana for most his life, Neel is excited to branch out and experience Nashville. Neel enjoys playing sports (mainly basketball), but he will watch any sport on television. Neel is an avid New Orleans Pelicans and Saints fan, but he is also excited to watch some Titans games. Neel also enjoys eating out and is looking forward to exploring the food scene in Nashville. Neel is excited to meet everyone at Vanderbilt and to start his residency. Member of AOA.
