On this episode I sit down with Dr. Dhaval Bhanusali, a board certified dermatologist in Manhattan. We discuss his role in bringing access to generic medications to his patients and the platform that he helped develop which gave this option to patients across the country.
Dr. Bhanusali is a leading Dermatologist and digital health entrepreneur based in Manhattan. As a member of the prestigious Medical Scholars program at Michigan State University, Dr. Bhanusali was accepted into medical school at the age of seventeen and graduated college in three years. He was awarded both the Spartan scholarship, as well as the Arthur L. Foley, MD PhD scholarships for his outstanding academic achievements. After finishing medical school, Dr. Bhanusali completed his Dermatology residency at Mount Sinai hospital in New York City. During his training, he also started Health Digital, a hybrid venture capital/ development platform that Forbes noted could “revolutionize health care innovation.”
Throughout his young career, Dr. Bhanusali has been featured on Elite Daily, Buzzfeed, Yahoo, Askmen, GQ, Business Insider, the Atlantic, People Magazine, Teen Vogue, Bustle, Self, WebMD, and countless other media outlets. His novel laser techniques and humanitarian efforts were featured on ABC , FOX, and People Magazine. His award winning research has been presented around the world and
earlier this year, he was the Dermatologic formulation scientist behind Amazon’s first exclusive skincare line, Fast Beauty Co.
Most recently, Dr. Bhanusali helped build Skin Medicinals, a technology platform that helps provide access to compounded medications at affordable prices for patients. He also co-founded AIRE Health, a fast growing EMR platform in Dermatology and HairStim, a technology platform providing access to personalized hair loss formulations.
Between being active in digital health and his dermatology practice in NYC (Hudson Dermatology and Laser Surgery), Dr. Bhanusali spends time working with non-profits and serving as a member of the American Academy of Dermatology’s media advisory team, as well as numerous committees (Access to Care, Teledermatology, Artificial Intelligence, etc).
