  • Sumit Bhargava
  • “I am focused on the well-being of the entire family.”

My parents are famous physicians in Delhi. I watched them treat families in a very warm and open way. That's how I try to be when I see patients in my clinic; I treat patients like I would like to be treated in a doctor's office.

I'm a pediatric pulmonologist and a pediatric sleep medicine doctor. In my sleep practice, I look at children who have sleep disturbances from chronic disease, and physical and mental health issues. I focus on the detection, treatment and prevention of sleep disorders in a variety of different pediatric diseases. I also help to diagnose and treat children with a variety of pulmonary disease.

I want patients and families to know they can look forward to a relationship with me that is based on open communication, mutual trust and respect. I'm a professional, but I strive to be compassionate and empathetic, even in stressful situations. I care about the impact of the illness on the child and the family's life. I try to focus on the well-being of the entire family, as they deal with the illness of their child.
