Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Bhatti says...

Dr. Bhatti formed Retina Macula Consultants of California after previously being on the faculty of the USC Keck School of Medicine / Doheny Eye Institute. His mission is to provide outstanding medical and surgical care in a personalized, compassionate manner, while educating the patient about their condition. His goal is to treat each patient the way we would want our family to be treated.

In 2014, Dr. Bhatti again has the honor of being recognized as one of the "Top Doctors" in Los Angeles by Pasadena Magazine. This is a survey of doctors voting on their peers.

Dr. Bhatti was born in Youngstown, OH and completed his undergraduate studies at Miami University in Oxford, OH before going on to complete his medical school training at the Medical College of Ohio. During medical school he was the recipient of an Intramural Research Training Award from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, where he spent one year completing research at the National Eye Institute.

He then completed his internship and residency in Michigan at the Henry Ford Hospital where he was selected as Chief Resident and was awarded the prestigious Barsky Award for his retina research. Dr. Bhatti then was offered a position at the world renowned Doheny Eye Institute at the USC Keck School of Medicine. While at USC/Doheny, he was awarded the first ever De Juan Fellowship Award for his research on sutureless small gauge vitreo-retinal surgery. In addition, he was also the sole recipient of the Retina Fellows Forum Research Award Winner awarded to one retina specialist his year from amongst all his peers in the country.

At the conclusion of his training he was asked by the Doheny Eye Institute to join their faculty. During his time on the faculty, he specialized in all aspects of retina care including complex surgical and medical retina problems. In addition to his practice he was the director of a regional Doheny Office and was intimately involved in resident and retina fellow education. Some of the doctors that trained under Dr. Bhatti practice in the greater Los Angeles area and others have gone on to join the faculty of prestigious universities.

Dr. Bhatti has a special interest in macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular disease, macular puckers, macular holes, retinal detachments along with all other retina medical and surgical problems.

Dr. Bhatti has published articles in medical journals including the America Journal of Ophthalmology, Clinical Ophthalmology and the British Journal of Ophthalmology. He has been invited to present at multiple conferences including the American Society of Retinal Specialists and the Association of Research for Vision and Ophthalmology. He has participated in many national clinical trails involving new treatments for macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions and other retinal disorders including the artificial retinal prosthesis.

Dr. Bhatti is board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a member of the American Society of Retina Specialists and the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

Dr. Bhatti, his wife and three children live in Pasadena. He enjoys spending time with his family, photography, playing sports with his children and friends, and is a dedicated Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
