Dr. Prathish was one who selected to work with the research institute of AVP - Avatar - as Junior Scientist.

Stepping the ladders in the organizational hierarchy at AVP, Dr. Prathish was elevated to the post of the Head of P V Rama Vaier Centenary Hospital at Mankarai, Coimbatore.
After his dedicated service at AVP for more than 10 years, he started a hospital in a serene village at Panamattam near Ponkunnam in Kerala on his own by the name Sree Dhanwathari Ayurvedasramam Hospital which later became Ayurvedasramam Hospital & Research Institute.
