... because GOOD medicine   works ....!

............................................................................................................................................................
Dr. Bhattacharya currently sees patients by appointment only, depending on her location.

If you have any financial concerns or issues, please discuss them personally with Dr. B. and she will address your issues to work out an arrangement so that both people are comfortable. Dr. B. is committed to working with people who demonstrate interest in holistic medicine, as GOOD holistic medicine is not always available to all who want it. In appropriate cases, she will reduce her fees.

As the first US Fulbright professor sponsored to research and teach Ayurvedic medicine in India, Dr. Bhaswati Bhattacharya, MPH, MD, DABHM, FABPM, HHC, CAP*, has been sharing best clinical practices and educational techniques with other Ayurvedic educators. She currently moves between her private consultation medical practice in Manhattan and her PhD studies at Banaras Hindu University (BHU). 

Until 2017, she anticipates seeing patients either personally in midtown Manhattan, at SS Hospital-BHU in Varanasi, or via phone/Skype. 

Located in Varanasi, BHU is the only University in the world with a full faculty of biomedicine, Ayurveda, chemistry, technology (IIT-BHU), pharmacy, biomedical research, a full hospital and several clinical units where both pharmaceutical and ayurvedic medicines are prescribed, as well as Sanskrit, history and disciplines needed to translate Ayurveda for the modern world.  

Specializing in holistic family medicine, Dr. Bhattacharya utilizes the best of medicines that truly work for real patients, to help them improve their quality of life, their health, and their well-being. She defines, refines and practices medicine on a holistic and truly integrative path. ​She actively incorporates traditional and indigenous medical systems into her clinical practices, using modern science where it actually works. She provides holistic medical care for the underserved as well as for insured patients. Modalities used include herbs, nutrition, exercise counseling, Ayurveda, energywork, mind-body medicine, homeopathy, breathwork (pranayam), yoga, and aromatherapy.

logistics

Your initial visit with Dr. B. will be either one or two hours in length, depending on your needs. The consultation fee for each hour is $300, for which you will receive you a detailed receipt with medical coding. Follow-up visits usually require 30 to 60 minutes with the doctor.

Because Dr. B. is a licensed, board-certified physician, many insurances companies will reimburse according to the coding provided for general medical care, which is included in the visit.

You may submit the invoice along with a signed claims form and send it to your health insurance plan for reimbursement; depending on your agreement, you may receive up to 100% reimbursement. You can also definitely use the invoice as a receipt for your Schedule A, Medical and Dental Expenses. You may also choose to have a Health Savings Account to quality for health care tax deductions.

Dr. B. does not 'participate' in any health plans, and is considered an "out-of-network" physician. In-network physicians are mostly required by contract to see patients for the standard period of time (about 7 minutes) and using only standard-of-care medicine (drugs, blood tests, CT scans/radiology and surgery).
