Featured Guests:

Dr. Paramjit "Romi" Chopra, M.D
Mimit Health

Dr. Paramjit “Romi” Chopra is the founder, President, and CEO of MIMIT Health (Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapies) and CIMSS (Comprehensive Integrated Management Systems and Solutions) in Chicago; a nationally-renowned interventional radiologist; and a healthcare innovator. His Eastern roots and Western medical experience combine the best of both his worlds, which have led him on a path to change the healthcare industry forever.

This path started when he graduated from the Seth Gordhandas Sunderas Medical College of Bombay University. He departed to America from his home in India, leading him to a new continent and culture. However, that didn’t impede him from completing his fellowship and residency with Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. It was a pivotal part of his career because it then opened the door to leadership roles and teaching positions within large academic and private hospitals.

He's had many different roles throughout his career as a physician, educator, and entrepreneur. Just some of them include Associate Professor of Radiology at Rush University in Chicago, Assistant Professor of Radiology at SUNY Health Science Center College of Medicine, and Medical Director at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital. As an entrepreneur, he has created and managed several healthcare businesses. And as a consultant and advisor, he has worked with several large medical device and pharmaceutical companies.

Fast forward to today, and he’s become a leader in cutting-edge healthcare through his work with MIMIT Health. But he didn’t get there overnight; it took years to establish his new paradigm of care. This paradigm focuses on treating the entire person, not just the medical condition, with the help of industry-leading technology and minimally invasive procedures. The other physicians at his practice also incorporate this level of care, and it’s translated into great outcomes. Patients and their families are educated; they feel comforted; and they feel that they can make the best decision for themselves, which leads to a higher quality of life.

Dr. Chopra’s achievements are vast and a testament to his high level of care. Some of the awards he has received include the Distinguished Physician Award; the U.S. Congressional Medal for Outstanding Contributions and Excellence in Patient Care and Teaching; and the Physician of the Year Award at the 11th Congressional Global Community Oscars. He also speaks at national and international conferences, teaching others about his care paradigm.

In his free time, Dr. Chopra enjoys being a board member of the Indo-American Center and is an active member of several professional societies, including the Society of Interventional Radiology, the Radiology Business Management Association, and the American Society of Physician Executives. He’s also a seasoned traveler, an avid reader and golfer, and enjoys the company of his numerous friends and associates worldwide.
