Direct Primary Care Doctor
Dr. Bhavana Rao went to Medical school in India and then completed residency at the Conroe Family Medicine Residency Program in Conroe, Texas. Prior to opening her DPC, she worked as a hospitalist at the Methodist Willowbrook Hospital in Houston, Texas.
Sunil Vasisht holds a Masters in Electrical Engineering as well as an MBA. He worked for Hewlett-Packard for more than 18 years where he led the Global Internet of Things Research and Development Team.
Together they opened Meridian Springs DPC in May of 2017.
Since opening in May of 2017, Dr. Rao and Sunil have built Meridian Springs Primary Care from the ground up. After seeing that there was no potential for future happiness as a hospitalist, Dr. Rao decided that she would open her doors as an outpatient Doctor. Sunil used his business knowledge and helped develop the business side of the clinic by using it as his capstone project. They bring their own unique spin to DPC by incorporating aspects like care for international visitors. They are always thinking to the future and, with that in mind, ask the question, "What, if anything, would break DPC?"
