Dr. Saligrama B Bhat has the following 2 specialties
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

This is the worst doctor in the world. first, he is stupid and its hard to believe he ever went to med school or passed boards. He should not be touching patients as I believe he may be impaired. he has poor judgement, refuses to work with other specialties or ancillary support services unless he has a vested interest in working with them for kick backs. check out his red porche which is the result of the financial gains attributed to kick backs from several of his own owned companies. I will file complaints with CMS and with OIG. he should have his license revoked. he is arrogant, no respect for women, does not like to be questioned about his treatment plans, does not have respect for other physicians or nurses. he practices as a solo doc and refuses to see his patients when they are in patient and in ICUs. he flat out refused to see my mother while she was in patient in ICU (due to his inadequate knowledge about COPD and cardiac disease) and then refused to speak to the nurses, the other doctors or to the family. we intend to seek out an attorney to go after this incompetent physician.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bhat's for about 6 or more years. I came to him after being seen by other doctors for my pulmonary issues with no help and frequent episodes of bronchitis and asthma every year. Thanks to his medical expertise he accurately diagnosed me and placed me on the right medicine which changed my life. He listens to me, respects my opinion, is never too rushed to spend whatever time is needed and is very caring. I highly recommend him.
My 90 year young neighbor was a patient of Dr. Bhat's. She had appointed me Health Care Surrogate. I can't answer how easy it is to get an appointment or wait time but I do know he was excellent with her in the hospital. His bed side manner is great and he called me several times while she was in the hospital to update me on her situation. He always took time to answer any questions I had, both in person and on the phone, and I never felt he was in a hurry. This was the first time I had ever met Dr. Bhat and he is very caring and compassionate. My neighbor was very fussy and hard to please but always spoke highly of Dr. Bhat. From what I've seen, I would highly recommend him. He truly cares about his patients.
Dr Bhat is a caring and compassionate physician. He takes the time to answer all calls and personal responded to me and my family members. He truly cares about the patient and the overall care. He has made us feel as though we are part of his family. I would recommend him who is in need of an excellent Internal medicine or Pulmonologist.He has always fit us in for appointments. Even if there is a wait time, we know that he is taking care of his patients in the hospital and understand any wait is due to this.
