Philosophy of Care

My goal is to partner with my patients and their families to improve health by delivering low cost, efficient and compassionate care. I find great joy in caring for multi-generational families, providing care for infants, parents and grandparents. It is important to be proactive in preventing illness by focusing on daily exercise and having a healthy diet.

    Dr Bhat is professional, very competent, thorough and responsive. He is familiar with current research and avoids prescribing non essential medication. I trust him implicitly in managing my routine preventive care as well as emergencies.
