Dr. Akhilesh Sehgal
First Appearance: Homecoming (July 25, 2004)
A native of India, Dr. Sehgal came to the United States to study medicine, but remained in America after his family disowned him for becoming a Christian. Sehgal works primarily at the emergency room of a local hospital where he constantly struggles with the weight of his responsibilities, ever mindful of the balance between life and death. Extremely dedicated and outgoing, he has also been known to use his own personal finances and resources to help those in need... which just happens to include a mysterious stranger currently under his care. He also spent several days nursing a badly injured Trudy back to health during a critical moment in her life.
