Opinions: “…BAPS Charities allow us to hone into a community because we understand their needs better. The other thing that I realized that BAPS (Charities) is, not only do you have specialties in medicine but bringing in integrative medicine, as I saw homeopathy doctors out there, physical therapists, dentists, flu vaccines, so looking at an individual as a whole rather than a bunch of systems, where you give a much better holistic approach as a person not necessarily a patient is very important and that is what I think BAPS Charities has accomplished beautifully,” said Dr. Savitha Balaraman MD, Oncologist, Beaumont Health Michigan.
