"I emphasize overall health and wellness for my patients and believe in controlling risk factors before they turn into disease. I partner with my patients to achieve the best possible health-care goals."

Dr. Nandana Kansra is an Internal Medicine Physician at the Shrewsbury location of Saint Vincent Medical Group. An on-staff Hospitalist at Saint Vincent Medical Group, she uses her degree in Public Health and experience in epidemiological work to address health issues ranging from diabetes and hypertension to the common cold.

Dr. Kansra stresses the need for follow-up appointments as an essential way to monitor progress and make the necessary adjustments that will enable patients to achieve the best outcome with their individualized healthcare plans. “With the help of diet and exercise prescriptions, we set reasonable goals together, factoring in enough time for patients to adopt a healthy lifestyle.”  

She also emphasizes the importance of preventive medicine by ensuring that her patients stay up to date on tests and follow the prescribed wellness guidelines. “Undergoing regular tests, like pap smears, mammograms and colonoscopies for example, isn’t just helpful at the diagnostic stage; it gives patients a sense of where they stand in terms of their overall wellness.” 

Prior to joining Saint Vincent Medical Group, Dr. Kansra held the position of Chief Medical Resident at Saint Vincent Hospital, where she completed her residency. She also completed an internship at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Newton, Massachusetts and holds a masters degree in Public Health.

Dr. Kansra is helping to change my life in every positive way possible. Without her, and the other doctors I have seen through St. Vincent's care network over the last 3 years, I would be a completely different and still unhappy and unhealthy person. I am so thankful for Dr. Kansra.

I have had Dr Kansra for more than a decade now and will not switch doctors and would follow her else where if needed. She has always listened to my concerns, communicates with all of my other providers, always answers my questions and does everything she can to help me achieve my goals. She also monitors all of my medications to ensure I don't have any poor interactions and understands that when I voice a concern it's legitimate and quickly works towards finding a positive solution.

I had a last minute appointment and was in a lot of pain and discomfort ,not to mention a bit of fear as I didn't really know what was wrong. Dr Kansra was so genuinely caring and concerned about me it instantly made me feel a bit better and that I wasn't alone. She knew exactly what was wrong and clearly explained what "we" needed to do.I had been suffering for 9 days. I found relief in less than 24 hours with her recommendations. She also spent a lot of time with me even tho I was "squeezed"in.
