Payal N. Bhandari, M.D.

Family Practice Physician Located In Pacific Heights, San Francisco, CA

Meet The Doctor

Dr. Bhandari went into the field of medicine to help people improve their health. Two decades of clinical experience has taught Dr. Bhandari how to clearly understand patients’ maladies. She has discovered that the journey to illness does not usually start suddenly. Illness often manifests over time due to one’s lifestyle, chronic stress, and diet. Dr. Bhandari first determines the root cause to any health problem. She then embraces the mind, body, and spirit to create personalized treatment plans to quickly restore health. 

After completing medical school at West Virginia University and her family practice residency at the University of Massachusetts, Dr. Bhandari joined a Laurel Heights neighborhood practice. After six years, this practice was acquired by a large corporation and shifted to Pacific Heights. Dr. Bhandari was one of the founding physicians who helped the practice become nationally recognized as the first patient-centered medical home in San Francisco. Thereafter, Dr. Bhandari began Advanced Health, a practice focused on cherishing the importance of the patient-doctor relationship through active listening, accessibility, and compassion. Dr. Bhandari combines the best in western and eastern medicine to transform patients’ lives so they can continue to live life.
