“Patients always come first, no matter what obstacles there are. It is the reason why I do what I do.”
Tejash Bhakta, PharmD, is dedicated to helping patients understand their medications, not just how and when to take their medications but also why. As a pharmacist, Tejash has spent many hours talking to patients about their dialysis medications. Because his patients take a lot of medications each day, not all for their kidney disease, Tejash’s goal is to optimize their care.
In his role as Manager of Operations at FreseniusRx, Tejash leads operations and compliance for FreseniusRx’s pharmacy facility in Nashville, Tennessee. He supervises a team of pharmacy professionals, working to improve patient outcomes and reduce avoidable spending.
Tejash joined the FreseniusRx team in 2017 and has been working as a pharmacist since 2005. He received his doctorate in pharmacy from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, Oklahoma.
Tejash spends his time cooking, watching football or running 10Ks when he isn’t working with patients or managing his team.
