Good Medicine Works.
                     consultations with Dr. Bhaswati Bhattacharya, MD
... because GOOD medicine   works ....!

how it works

At our initial visit, we will invest two hours, during which we will talk about YOU as the expert of your body and how I can help you. The initial visit fee is $600. You should complete the holistic health intake form, as it will help us to focus on your needs and issues. Before your visit, please download a copy, sit quietly with a cup of tea and connect with yourself, then complete the form.

During the visit, we will discuss how you feel things go when you get sick and what is happening in your body then from a medical point of view. We will discuss basic physiology so you can understand your body better. I will assess what is going on, suggest both conventional medicine and non-conventional options for testing and for treatment. I often use pulse diagnosis, generally do some energywork, and some counseling and education on anatomy or physiology. I will do a focused physical exam, and we will then talk about lifestyle issues, including exercise, nutrition and some holistic modalities appropriate for you.

Then we will prepare a tentative action plan. Usually this involves a combination of modalities, including Ayurveda, herbs, yoga, massage, meditation, homeopathy, supplements, TCM remedies, nutrition, and sometimes some exercise options, depending on what is going on.  You will tell me what you are comfortable and uncomfortable using, and then we refine a plan that you want to follow. 

During the first visit, we will formulate some short-term and then medium-term plans for helping you with whatever you feel you need help with. I will help you set up homework for yourself so that you can take small steps forward in whatever direction you need.

In this way, the patient walks away with a definite plan that s/he wants to adhere to. Subsequent visits are billed at $300, depending on the complexity and time spent.

I work with sliding scales for students, and I will again offer discounts on a case-by-case basis once I complete my PhD. Please call if you would like to work something out.

making the most of your visit

Once we are committed to your initial visit, please write to me about your story. Include the first memories of being sick, and how the past ten years have been, what you feel are your weak parts of your body, how your gut has been, what your main emotions are, and how you have felt.  We will work holistically.  Be as poetic, philosophical or concrete as you like. And of course everything is confidential. 

Please complete the holistic medical history form and bring it to our visit. Also, please bring a food diary if you have time.

I see patients at GoodMedicine Works. by appointment only. I have tried to replicate the old style of seeing patients: personal, attentive, one at a time, with enough time. 

After your visit, I will give you a receipt with all necessary medical coding for you to submit to your insurance company/ flex spending/ accountant for reimbursement. You should bring a copy of the back and front of your insurance card for your file.

I look forward to working with you.

Blessings, 
Dr. Bhaswati
