KINGSBURG – Adventist Health Medical Office in Kingsburg is pleased to welcome Mustafa Kagalwalla, MD, who joins our organization in July. Dr. Kagalwalla has seven years of experiencing caring for patients and is Board Certified in both Internal Medicine and Nephrology.

Dr. Kagalwalla comes to us most recently from Kidney Care Center in Merrillville, Indiana, where he’s served as a Nephrologist for the past two years. Fluent in English, Hindi and Urdu, he most commonly cares for adults and seniors who need preventative medicine and treatments for diabetes, hypertension and chronic kidney disease.

Originally from Bhopal, India, Dr. Kagalwalla ranked in the top one percent in the National Standard Examination in Biology, and again in the top one percent statewide in the National Standard Examination in Chemistry.

He then completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Mount Sinai Saint Luke’s-West Hospital Center in New York and his Nephrology Fellowship at University of Illinois at Chicago.

Driven by a desire to help others, Dr. Kagalwalla has participated in studies dedicated to helping children suffering from malnutrition and in research conducted by the Department of Preventive and Social Medicine at Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical College and General Hospital. An avid volunteer, he has donated his time in India teaching impoverished children, performing health check-ups for children, and participating in awareness programs to educate women about preventive health.

“I was inspired to seek a career in medicine because I wanted to help people,” he says. “I love to provide the best and most up-to-date care to my patients.”

In his spare time, Dr. Kagalwalla enjoys cooking, playing soccer, and spending time with his wife, Umme Haani Malwi, MD, who is also joining Adventist Health in July.
