Biography

Sunita Madhukar Deshmukh, M.D., wants her patients to be involved in their medical care, saying her most important role as a physician is, “to provide patients with the necessary information and tools to resolve their health care issues while giving them the necessary support.”

Board certified in both internal medicine and geriatrics, Dr. Deshmukh earned her medical degree at B.J. Medical College in Pune, India. She completed her residency in internal medicine and her fellowship in geriatrics at Staten Island University Hospital in New York City.

Dr. Deshmukh also maintains a holistic philosophy in her practice. “I understand the importance of listening to my patients and dealing with their health care needs as a whole person,” she says.

When away from her practice, Dr. Deshmukh enjoys spending time with her family, listening to music, reading and cooking.

These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I feel a 21 day wait time for an appointment is insensitive. The urgent care provider is too far from my place of residence.

It seems as if they need additional help in the department that requests auths for procedures. I need an auth for two MRI's and when I called in to check on the status they said they are backed up and will not be able to start on mine for a week or two. Then I will have to wait for [...] to review to see if it is approved or not.

100

11/14/2016
I have been a patient of Dr. Deshmukh's for at least fifteen years. In that time,I have never felt once that I wasn't receiving the highest level of care or medical treatment possible from her and the staff at Providence Medical Group in Gresham. Dr. Deshmukh sets the gold medal standard for what your primary health care provider should be. I don't think people realize what a caring, knowledgeable and dedicated doctor she truly is. While my health has been great and not so great during the past fifteen years due to my own lack of care and other environmental issues, she's as close to perfect as you can get in my opinion.
