approach 

For the past 21 years, Dr. Bhaswati Bhattacharya, MPH, MD, PhD, DABHM, FABPM, HHC, CAP*, has been practicing holistic family medicine emphasizing Ayurveda, and teaching best clinical practices and educational techniques for learning Integrative Medicine. 

She currently works between her private consultation medical practice in Manhattan and her deeper study of indigenous medicines around the world, when she consults with patients via phone/video conference. She has recently completed a PhD in Ayurveda at Banaras Hindu University (BHU) in the ancient city of Varanasi.

As the first US Fulbright Scholar sponsored jointly by the US Dept of State and the Government of India in 2013-2014, to research and teach Ayurvedic medicine in India, Dr. Bhattacharya continued research in the clinical and physicochemical bases of bhasmas–herbometallic compounds that often work quickly and cleanly to rebalance the body from 'incurable' diseases. For her PhD thesis 2014-2018, she studied how plants work medicinally, from soil to stomach to cell.

Specializing in The Patient, Dr. Bhattacharya actively incorporates traditional and indigenous medical systems into her clinical practice of holistic family medicine, using modern science only where it actually works for real patients. The goal is not a clinical trial; it is to help each patient improve his/her quality of life, health, and well-being. She defines, refines and practices medicine on a holistic and truly integrative path. She provides holistic medical care for the underserved as well as for insured patients. 

Modalities include herbs, nutrition, yoga, breathwork (pranayama), exercise counseling, energywork, mind-body medicine, homeopathy, aromatherapy, a strong underpinning in Ayurveda, as well as biomedical drugs and procedures as needed.

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 physician's billing statement with medical coding. Follow-up visits usually require 30 to 60 minutes with the doctor.

Because Dr. B. is a licensed, board-certified physician, insurance companies often reimburse according to the ICD-10 coding provided for general medical care at the standard of a family physician, 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 USA tax deductions on 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. no longer 'participates' in Medicare, Medicaid, or any health plans, PPOs or insurance quotas or networks. Therefore, she is not required as a contract physician 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). She values your care enough not to discount it.
