Dr. Amit Bhate is a Chicago native and followed in the footsteps of his physician parents. His mother founded the radiation oncology practice which is now part of NM Kishwaukee hospital in 1993. He went into medicine to help others and felt that oncology patients and their families were the people who needed this the most. His goal as a physician is to educate patients and their families on their diagnosis so that a team approach can be used in finding the best course of treatment. Regarding treatment, it is of utmost importance to him to provide cutting edge compassionate cancer care without patients having to travel outside of their local communities. One way this is accomplished is thru multi-disciplinary tumor boards with downtown Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Central DuPage Hospital, Delnor Hospital, Kishwaukee Hospital and the Northwestern Medicine Proton Center. This allows accessibility to top specialists in oncology within each hospital and at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. In addition, he is part of a 20+ physician radiation oncology group, providing for even more expertise within radiation oncology itself. He feels it is a tremendous privilege and honor to care for cancer patients and their families, finding it humbling and deeply satisfying.

Dr. Bhate enjoys spending his free time with his wife, two children and his friends. He enjoys watching sports, coaching his children’s sports teams and travelling. He has interests in cars, technology and music.
