MEET DR. BHAGIA
VINITA BHAGIA, MD
“I grew up seeing my paternal grandma live with diabetes and how everyone in the house was made to eat healthy, lower carbs due to her condition. When I got to medical school, I found diabetes and its pathophysiology endlessly fascinating. I would read everything I could get my hands on for hours on end. I took an endocrinology elective in my intern year of residency and completely fell in love. I loved the subject and the fact that every patient was so different. I knew this was something to keep me motivated in enjoying what I do every day.
“It is most stimulating to lower someone’s Hba1c from over 14 (very high) to under 7 (our goal at 3-month average of sugars). I love the fact that every patient is so different. It keeps me on my toes and stimulated as we help people reach a better quality of life. I am so happy that I practice in this day and age where we have so many tools and meds in our armamentarium to help manage disease so much better than before.”
