Kiran Aulakh, MPA, PA-C

Kiran Aulakh, MPA, PA-C, grew up speaking three languages, and her approach to medicine is equally diverse. As a physician assistant whose practice focuses on orthopedic surgery, she also has experience in chronic pain management, and sports medicine. Kiran loves bringing her skills where they are needed most, to underserved areas and the community she serves.

In her medical practice, Kiran is dedicated to educating patients and their families about their condition and diagnosis. She is also committed to serving as a partner with them in developing and complying with a treatment plan for highest-quality results. “I like to advocate for patients and provide continuous care,” she says, “working collaboratively with a team so that my patients experience the best possible outcomes for their condition.”

After graduating from the University of California, Merced, with a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences with emphasis in molecular and cell biology, Kiran earned her Master of Science Degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Samuel Merritt University in Oakland, California.

Born and raised in the California’s Central Valley, Kiran is tri-lingual and speaks English, Punjab, and Hindi. Outside of work, she loves to travel, spend time with her husband, family and friends, and enjoy outdoor activities.
