Profile: Pankai Rajvanshi, M.D.

Never thought of not volunteering

Dr. Pankai Rajvanshi was one of Project Access Northwest’s first volunteers in 2006. Before becoming a clinician, he was a liver researcher at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, which led to his interest in Gastroenterology & Liver disease. L–R: Dr. Rajvanshi and some of his office staff — Ame Holliston, Gayle Prather and Jennifer Marsh.

“I come from a background with a lot of underprivileged people who have little access to health care. No one should be denied access to health care because they cannot pay. That’s the principle. We have primary care in the community clinics, but access to specialty care is so hard. There wasn’t even a second thought on whether I should volunteer or not. I never thought about NOT doing this.”
