“I like to relate to patients as if they’re part of my family. I want them to have a good understanding of their condition and what can be done to help them.“

About Me

While growing up in India, Dr. Bhat was inspired to become a physician after seeing the great need for health care and learning how it affected people when they weren’t able to get health issues resolved quickly.

Urologic Expertise

With over 30 years of experience in urology, Dr. Bhat provides expert care for conditions of the male and female urinary tract (kidneys, bladder, ureter, urethra) and the male reproductive organs. He also performs advanced surgical procedures. "I enjoy seeing the immediate results that patients can experience through surgery," he says. "It’s rewarding to be able to help patients and watch them improve."

Compassionate Care

Dr. Bhat also enjoys getting to meet and care for people of all ages. He strives to give his patients a good understanding of their condition and treatment options. "I like to spend a lot of time with patients and explain everything in detail so that they know exactly what’s going on."

In addition to English, Dr. Bhat speaks fluent Hindi and Marathi.

Prevention Is Key

"Prevention is always better than a cure," he adds, "I advise everyone to avoid smoking and eat well. There are a lot of health issues that can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle."

In his free time, Dr. Bhat enjoys traveling, visiting family, playing tennis and reading.
