About Me

As a primary care physician, I love what I do. This quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience,” best describes how I keep pushing through hard times because I strive to be my best every day.

I enjoy developing a long-lasting doctor-patient relationship with each of my patients. Throughout their medical journey, I lend a listening ear, help them manage complex medical care and give helpful advice.

At Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, I’m lead physician for the Ohio State Transition of Care COVID-19 Clinic as well as an assistant professor for the Division of Internal Medicine. Apart from patient care, I spend much time teaching medical students and residents because passing knowledge on to future generations is an important aspect of working in an academic medical center.

In my spare time, I love reading, traveling and exploring various parts of the world, cooking new cuisine and spending time with my lovely family.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 10/25/2021, Dr. Bhat has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
