Hi/Hola/ Namaskar

My name is Sunil K Bhatia. Born and brought up in India. I was a practicing psychiatrist in New Delhi, India before migrating to the states. Finished further training in Brooklyn, New York and the Psychoanalytic Institute of New York. I have been in the upstate South Carolina since year 2000.

I am board certified in Adult Psychiatry and have worked in both the Community Mental Health setting as well as in the private sector.

My area of interest include philosophy, literature, psychoanalysis. My take on psychiatry is to “ connect the dots of biology, psychology and sociology “ to help with the “ human condition and it’s travails”
