It was there that the idea of building Practo was born. Since then, he has worn many hats at Practo as he worked across functions of design, engineering, and product management.

In his 12+ years at Practo, he rose through the ranks strengthening product, engineering, growth, and expansion. Together, Siddhartha, Abhinav, and I cannot be more excited to lead Practo into the next phase, where healthcare is more inclusive, integrated, and safe while living our shared values of trust, transparency, and healthcare for all.” says, Shashank ND, CEO & Co-founder, Practo

Commenting on the appointment Abhinav Lal, Co-founder, Practo said, “Siddhartha’s passion for engineering and coding helped us create breakthrough products.
