Dr. Sanjay Kamat brings extensive medical experience to his “hometown” roots. Raised in Bucks County, he lives in Washington Crossing now with his wife and two children. Dr. Kamat graduated at the top of his class at Pennsbury High School and completed his B.S. at Penn State in premedicine where he was President of the Premedical Honor Society. He earned an M.S. in physiology at Penn State where he taught Anatomy and Physiology. He was also a teacher at Widener University, the Community College of Philadelphia and Bucks County Community College. Dr. Kamat attended Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Missouri and completed his internship and residency at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine where he was chief resident.
In Philadelphia for seven years, Dr. Kamat worked at Albert Einstein Medical Center performing complicated cataract, oculoplastic trauma, and anterior segment surgeries. And, he was an ophthalmologist at Moss Rehabilitation Hospital. He’s the kind of expert who “puts patients first,” he says, “even if that means referring them to another expert who might know more than I do.”
Board-certified and a fellow of the Osteopathic College of Ophthalmology, he is a clinical instructor at the prestigious Wills Eye Institute in Philadelphia and is also the ophthalmologist for the Cancer Treatment Centers of America’s Northeast Regional Center. He is on staff at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Langhorne, Aria Bucks County Campus and Campus Eye Group in Hamilton, NJ.
A member of the American Academy of Opthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons, as well as the Pennsylvania and Bucks County Medical Societies, Dr. Kamat lectures locally and nationally and has co-chaired national meetings for the American Osteopathic College of Ophthalmology.
