Prerana R. Sangani, MD, MPH

Internal Medicine

Dr. Sangani is a native New Yorker, but has made the Bay Area her home for over 20 years. She attended Swarthmore College and received her MD from the University of Rochester.

During medical school, she pursued her passion to understand how doctoring differed in various countries and was awarded an International Medicine grant to work in rural Kenya. 

Making the move to the West Coast she completed her Internal Medicine training in San Francisco, followed by a fellowship in Preventive Medicine from UCSF and then a Masters in Public Health from the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Sangani traveled to India and Nepal as part of her education, serving indigent communities and studying Ayurvedic medicine, one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems.

Dr. Sangani was in private practice in San Francisco before joining The Village Doctor in 2007. She enjoyed a hiatus from clinical medicine in 2015 to pursue additional training in the internationally recognized Jon Kabat-Zinn Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction technique. Additionally, she studied the proven health benefits of structured cognitive exercise to improve mental focus and maximize one’s cognitive edge.

She returns to The Village Doctor excited to integrate these skills into her clinical practice.

“To me, wellness means more than just feeling good. It means true appreciation and respect for the life you’ve been given and the positive effect your wellness can have on you and those around you.”
