She sees children with general physical problems as well as with developmental problems. She works with therapists like Physiotherapists, Psychologists whose help are sought if required. She also believes in giving back to society and therefore, sees children from underprivileged backgrounds on two mornings a week.

Dr DeBhattacharya says, “It gives me great pleasure to be associated with Little Scholars Playschool. I enjoyed the two recent interactive workshops with the parents and found the parents to be knowledgeable, inquisitive, responsible and keen for the best outcome in their children. It is an exciting time for me as I believe in a holistic approach to bring out the best developmental outcome in a child. To that end, I have started a Children’s Development Clinic at Medica and Fortis Hospitals as well as Institute of Child health and establishing my own practice too. I believe in forming a partnership with the parents, children and their school and engage all parties concerned, when required, to find a solution to any medical problem.”
