Philosophy:

At a young age, Deepti Govathoti, MD, knew she wanted to pursue a career in medicine. But even after her studies and residency, Dr. Govathoti, a hospitalist at ETMC Carthage, still approaches each day as a learning experience. “Every patient is different so it’s educational for me. I like taking care of people and just being there for them. I want my patients to feel like they are in control.
“I enjoy explaining to my patients what is going on with them to help them understand what we are doing to make their lives better and what they can do to make it better.”
A native of India, Dr. Govathoti welcomes the laid-back atmosphere of East Texas and the comfortable lifestyle it has provided for her and her young family. “I think the area is very homey and relaxing. The people are very nice and respectful.”
