Dr. Bhat's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bhat "Bellevue Neurology is headed by Dr. Roopa Bhat, MD, PhD, a board-certified neurologist who developed an affinity for the Pacific Northwest while doing an Internal Medicine Internship in Providence Portland Medical Center in Portland, OR. She then trained in Neurology at Stanford Hospital and Clinics in Stanford, CA. She completed her residency in Neurology and translational fellowship in Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Research at Stanford. After that, she served as faculty there, supervising the neurology clinics of Neurology residents and winning teaching award from the Stanford medical students. She has published articles and authored chapters in top journals including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Multiple Sclerosis, Neuron, Nature medicine and the Tarascon Clinical Neurology Pocketbook. After her years in California, Dr. Bhat returned to the Pacific Northwest in 2013 to practice in Washington. She remains a firm believer in education. She frequently gives educational patient talks and spends time during a patient's visit to explain the mechanism of neurologic dysfunction and how treatments may be working.

Thank you Dr. Bhat for not giving up on me for an answer for my headaches. Even when I was discouraged that nothing was working, you listened, were optimistic, and kept trying until we found a medication that worked!
