Dr. Samidha Bhat became interested in medicine as a child, watching her grandmother practice Ayurvedic Medicine. As a board-certified family physician, Dr. Bhat has loved caring for her own patients, especially seniors. “They often share amazing life experiences, which help me understand them and take care of them,” she says. “I find that listening well can help avoid unnecessary testing—and help me personally.” In addition to geriatric care, some of Dr. Bhat’s expertise includes knee and shoulder injections, cryotherapy, laceration repairs, and skin tag removal.
Away from work, Dr. Bhat loves to spend time with her husband and kids, run, dance, do kickboxing workouts, and travel. She hopes to one day visit the Caribbean Islands.
