Khyati N. Kothari, MD is an Assistant Professor for the psychiatry faculty at University of Tennessee in Memphis. She went to medical school in Navi Mumbai, India, as well as completing her internship and residency at State University of New York at Buffalo in Buffalo, NY. "From a very young age, I aspired to be like my father, also a physician. The humane aspect of medicine and more so of psychiatry is my favorite part of being a physician," she shared.
Dr. Kothari has presented her work at conferences for American Psychiatric Association and American Association of Geriatric Psychiatry as well as teaching courses about psychiatric disorders at University of Buffalo. She is a member of the American Psychiatric Association, Western New York Psychiatric Society, and the Residency Selection Program Subcommittee.
She loves being a physician educator, but she really enjoys getting her patients involved in their medical decisions and helping them in any way. "I believe in respecting all individuals," Dr. Kothari explained. "In my practice, this transforms in getting patients involved in their health care decisions. I feel that giving them the basic understanding of their illness empowers them to make healthier decisions."
