“In a vast, sandy desert, in the middle of a searing hot summer, I became the country’s first outdoor salesman,” says Dr Shetty. Going from clinic to clinic selling drugs to doctors, loading cartons, hoisting 5-gallon barrels on his shoulder up staircases was his first idea of working in the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi. He soon noticed the deficiency for basic clinics in the region and with his strong business acumen and consumer insight, he set up New Medical Centre – a small pharmacy diagnostic clinic. After that, there was no looking back. He was blessed with tremendous success and soon hospitals began sprouting over Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Al Ain.

Today, Dr Shetty is the proud visionary behind 55 healthcare facilities which cater to more than five million patients annually. All his healthcare facilities boast of multi-cultural doctors with impressive accreditations to their name and a quality standard in healthcare that promises affordable excellence. With this in focus Dr. Shetty has major projects lined up in Egypt and India.


After successfully running a chain of quality healthcare facilities, Dr Shetty felt the need for quality drugs at good value. Once again seizing the potential, Dr Shetty started a backward integration into a state-of-the-art pharmaceutical manufacturing plant – Neopharma.

It was inaugurated by the Honourable, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. Neopharma is the first pharmaceutical manufacturing facility of its kind in Abu Dhabi, with product licensing from Pfizer, USA and Merck KGaA and many other internationally renowned pharmaceutical companies, offering quality medicines at affordable prices. Neopharma’s gleaming $30 million plant sits in a green oasis and is the top generic drug maker in the U.A.E.

Dr Shetty has now embarked on the path of innovation in the fields of Bio-Technology and Cell Therapy, Tissue Culture and Nanotechnology.
