Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bhatia "Patient care starts and ends with awareness of the processes that create diseases.  Our practice is somewhat different from a traditional doctor's office. We are a multidisciplinary group of physicians, and together we specialize in research and development of the latest drugs and devices in dermatology and internal medicine. We have a combination of the usual facilities of a small doctor's office and a clinical research establishment. You may have arrived here upon referral from a friend or your insurance company, prior experience with one of us or even having answered an advertisement for research subjects. Whatever brought you to us, be reassured that we will do our very best to ensure your health and welfare."
