ABOUT DR. BHAT
Sunil has always had an innate understanding of natural law. At a young age he gravitated towards the order of mathematics, physics and chemistry, but truly found his calling when he began to explore biology. A unique path led him from a Bachelors of Science in Biomedical Engineering and Masters of Arts in Medical Sciences at Boston University, to molecular cardiology research at Vanderbilt University. While in Tennessee he attended a 200-hr yoga teacher training and learned about the ancient basis of the interrelation of structure and function, movement and nutrition, health and dis-ease.
While teaching yoga, he learned about osteopathy from a patron complaining about how hard it was to find a practicing Traditional Osteopath in this country. He soon discovered an entire art and science of conventional medicine hiding in plain sight. After spending a few months in India studying yoga and Ayurveda, he found Osteopathic Medicine as a perfect balance to reconcile treating disease with modern medicine, and optimizing health and wellness that has been the emphasis of most ancient healing disciplines around the world. Over the next eight years, he dedicated his life to learning and understanding all aspects of health and disease, delivering over 200 babies and assisting his patients from birth to death in obtaining a higher quality and function of life. He honed his skills in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine by treating the majority of his patients in and out of the hospital as well as attending numerous extra-curricular courses and conferences. He received his Board Certification in Osteopathic Family Medicine in 2017 after completing his residency training with the Puyallup Tribal Health Authority and Tacoma General Hospital in Tacoma, WA. He continued on to complete a fellowship at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis, OR and received a second Board Certification in 2018, in the Osteopathic specialty of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (OMM/NMM).
Sunil is an avid Skier and Snowboarder, and loves anything involving the out doors. He enjoys golf, tennis, surfing, yoga, hiking, camping and exploring ways to create a more conscious and intentional world to live in.
