He is one of my best doctors. He is always there for me. He has my thanks and very best wishes. May he have a very long and wonderful life.. God bless him and his family.
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
I often use online resources such as Up To Date and Mayo Clinic. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I have more time to reference these resources instantly when needed to provide your medical care. The incredibly in-depth Annual Wellness Program goes into detail way beyond what I have been able to do as an internist in the past. They are similar to Executive Physicals that are offered at top University hospitals in the country.
I am Board Certified in internal medicine, and, in the past, provided EKG reading for New Hanover Regional Medical Center for over twenty years. I also have thirty years of experience with lung function testing. These skills are of great value with MDVIP’s Annual Wellness Program. Above all, I have taken great interest in the care of each patient, looking at the whole person in terms of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness. MDVIP gives me the time to attend to all these needs.
Another major interest of mine is the care of back pain, and the teaching of certain exercises that I have found to help; I call them “home back adjustments”. I have helped countless patients with neck and low back pain with these exercises. The MDVIP model allows me time to demonstrate these exercises. In some patients, these exercises saved them from having back surgery and allowed a quick recovery.
To summarize, MDVIP helps me practice a standard of medicine like never before.

We have been under Dr. Bhat's care for many years. He has been wonderful and very caring. We just hope he stays around for many years. He always takes time to listen and answer any questions we may have. There is not another one that even comes close to Dr Bhat.
Dr. Bhat has been my primary care doctor for a very, very long time. His attention to me has been a blessing due to his carie and supporting my high quality of life. As I am rapidly approaching the age of 70 he has sustained me with his care and advice that enables me to enjoy life by playing golf 3 to 5 days a week and enjoy a very active social life. The meds that he prescribes are perfect… See more
