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. At Bellevue Neurology, her practice covers all aspects of general neurology. She also has a special interest in multiple sclerosis and migraine.

Dr. Bhat very well could be the best physician I've had. I've suffered chronic pain and migraines for years now, and she has shown the greatest patience, creativity, and competence in addressing my medical issues. I've bounced across perhaps a dozen or so doctors and therapists who unsuccessfully tried to treat my pain, and she's the first to gain real traction. I'd recommend her to anyone suffering conditions similar to mine, whether the closest family to distant acquaintance.

I would absolutely not go to this doctor. The office staff and referral coordinator are extremely unprofessional and absolutely rude. They have no considideration for anyone else except themselves. I got a referral on 5/12 and still haven't received any information from the office and it is 5/24. I am not sure how medical professionals get away with this type of treatment. Do not go here, go to Multicare Neuroscience. They are completely a different experience where they treat patients with resp

Best doctor I've ever seen. Knowledgeable, attentive, excellent bedside manner, and genuinely cares about her patients. I left the office extremely satisfied with my visit. Highly recommended.

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!
