Schooled in India and the United States, Dr. Gulati’s served a six-year medical directorship at Humana, a TRICARE contractor for the U.S. Department of Defense, after which she established her current practice at Patients Medical in Manhattan, New York. Her expansive knowledge of Eastern medical modalities and her rigorous Western medical training enables her to share a wealth of venerable medical wisdom and compassionate, holistic healing care with her patients.
While Dr. Gulati is a dedicated medical director in the midst of completing her Master’s in Medical Management, she is first and foremost a practicing physician committed to forging partnerships with her patients that focus on optimal, long-term health through education, empowerment, and personal responsibility.
One of Dr. Gulati’s richest experiences
in integrative medicine was gained during her childhood. She knew as young as three years of age that she wanted to be the “one in the white coat,” to give people happiness.
As a child, her family physician, Uncle Doc, was a homeopathic doctor who gave her home remedies, including herbs, when she was sick. Within a day of taking the remedies, she was happy, healthy, and eating ice cream, her favorite food as a child.
Dr. Gulati firmly believes holistic health care offers patients the most favorable outcomes. She is passionate and committed to sharing this knowledge with her patients … and helping them to achieve happiness too!
Dr. Gulati’s functional medical approach involves a passionate blend of intensive listening with extensive observation and testing, enabling her to paint as clear a patient profile as possible before making her assessment and initiating a treatment plan. Her in-depth methods encourage the body’s innate ability to heal itself, to regain balance and achieve lifelong well-being.
For Dr. Rashmi Gulati, integrative medicine is warm, inclusive, compassionate, patient patient care. She puts people at ease by taking the time to learn who they really are, while striving for an intelligent balance between cutting-edge methodology and time-honored, traditional medical practices. Dr. Gulati sees mainstream medicine as a highly evolved matrix for acute crisis intervention, but preventive health care (in contrast to sick care) as the true avenue to wellness, reached by creating health daily throughout one’s lifetime. She believes the body’s default setting favors health, and takes pride in helping patients postpone or even prevent the onset of chronic degenerative, age-related illnesses, inspiring them to foster lifestyle habits that allow one to age with grace and dignity. For most of our lives, greater wellness in body, mind, and spirit lies within our reach, regardless of prior health history or genetic blueprint.
Under Dr. Rashmi Gulati’s new leadership, Patients Medical administers care across nearly a hundred different health specialties.
