A Message From Dr. Chopra
My grandfather, a renowned health care professional from India, was the first to expose me to the benefits of botanical extracts for skincare and protection. I have long been aware of the healing powers found within our natural environment. This knowledge and understanding, which stemmed from my upbringing, has proved instrumental in the development of RATIO. Along with my partner Dr. Ordon, I also frequently guest-star on the hit TV series “The Doctors.” I have been a frequent news channel contributor as well as appearing on several daytime talk shows, I am quickly becoming the go-to doc for health and skin problems throughout the country and welcome any questions that you may have.
