Dr. Cherian grew up as a Bronx/Long Island hybrid. She spent half of her early days in the Parkchester area of the Bronx and the rest of her pre-residency days in Nassau County on Long Island. She was enrolled in an accelerated Bachelors of Science/Doctor of Osteopathy program through the New York Institute of Technology and the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. She found the Mid Hudson Family Medicine program offered her comprehensive training in family medicine while still caring about its residents like they’re a part of the family. The ability to care for multigenerational family units, the diversity of patients and pathologies and the challenges and rewards of teaching remain the most exciting parts of Family Medicine for her. Outside of work, Dr. Cherian is an entertainment buff who enjoys a wide array of music, movies, television, reading literature (mostly fiction) and all sorts of writing. She spends her free time enjoying friends and family, being an active member of her local church, and trying new and even more delicious foods.
