Dr. Sunil Bhole is Salude’s consultant Physiatrist. Physiatrists are physicians who specialize in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and are consulted when pain, weakness or disability is preventing a patient from achieving their desired level of independence. Dr. Bhole has been an integral part of Salude since its opening and sees patients to address issues related to their rehabilitation and pain management. As part of the Physician Advisory Board at Salude Dr. Bhole meets quarterly with community physicians and Salude’s leadership to explore ways to improve and enhance the care and services at Salude.
Dr. Bhole has been a part of the community for over 25 years. He opened Glancy Rehabilitation Center, affiliated with Gwinnett Medical Center, in 1988 and has remained its Medical Director since that time. Under his leadership, Glancy Rehabilitation Center has ranked in the top 3% of Rehabilitation facilities nationwide, has received the highest level of accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities and been designated as a Stroke Specialty Program. Dee Desai, Executive Director at Salude recalls meeting Dr. Bhole prior to the opening of Salude when we were looking for a physiatrist to join the team. “When we presented the concept, he was very enthusiastic about a new Transitional Care facility and very excited to be a part of it,” says Desai. “Dr. Bhole had the perfect background, experience, vision, enthusiasm and energy to be a part of our team.”
Dr. Bhole has worked very well with our attending physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and therapists as well as community physicians to help create individualized rehabilitation programs for our patients. He provides educational inservices as needed and is always available to answer questions. Desai continues, “Salude is very fortunate to have Dr. Bhole as a part of its team.”
