Dr. Dhaliwal met his lovely, Canadian wife, Dr. Supreet Ghuman, in New York City where she trained to be a surgical Podiatrist. Her practice is Prairie Foot & Ankle based in Elgin. They both starred in varsity sports in high school; he in football and track and she in basketball.
They have two rambunctious children: their hockey in training son Armaan (7 yrs old) and soccer daughter Ameena (6 yrs old). When not at the office, you can find them enjoying such pursuits as traveling, cycling, and sports (Dr. Dhaliwal is a die hard Bears fan!).
