Dr. Bhave completed her undergraduate and medical school years in Chicago at Northwestern University, then decided to enter a new energizing atmosphere in San Francisco, where she completed her residency in Anesthesiology at University of California, San Francisco, a top Anesthesiology program.
Her love of innovation and desire for lasting patient relationships brought her back to Chicago to complete a pain fellowship at Northwestern university.
She is well versed in the newest technologies for spine interventions, as well as joint (knee, hip and shoulder) procedures and many other acute and chronic pain syndromes. She is also involved in making newer techniques available for patients.
Dr. Bhave is amazing. 5 star. One of the most kind and compassionate doctors I’ve had. In an industry that’s moving more towards assembly line procedures, she is what you remember a doctor to be. Someone that’s invested in helping you to be the healthiest you. She takes the time to ask questions and explain things, and is very dedicated to her patients. The office experience gets 3 stars. Lost and misplaced imaging cd’s, some scheduling errors, and the like. I’m willing to put up with it due to the excellence of care. There can be a wait at times, but I’m also tolerant of this. I’ve been there for a consultation, that Dr ended up fitting me in for a procedure due to the amount of pain I was in. I assume this is done for others as well. I’m happy to wait if others are getting the same treatment and help with their pain. Just know about it and leave a little more time in your schedule than you may expect.
My husband and I have seen Dr.Bhave twice. My husband for his back and me for my neck. We both had different disc problems but with the cortisone shots she gave us has helped immensely. Dr. Bhave also has a great bed side manor and is great at going over MRI's CT's and and explaining why and where your having pain. She really cares about her patients and is very compassionate. I am grateful that my internist recommended me.
