Family Medicine, Board Certified
Dr. Raman Ashta is a board-certified family physician in practice for over 10 years. Born and raised in India, she attended Government Medical College, Amritsar. She completed her Family Medicine Residency at Forbes Family Medicine Residency Program in Monroeville, PA.
Dr. Ashta believes that medications are not the only solution to most common health problems in the modern society. Changes in lifestyle are equally, if not more important in managing and treating metabolic issues like obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease. This led her to obtaining certification from American Board of Obesity Medicine. She recognizes that treating the complex disease of obesity is much more nuanced than “eat less, move more.”
Dr. Ashta’s philosophy is treating the whole person. She helps her patients identify areas of improvement in their lifestyle, whether it is food, activity, stress, or sleep management. She utilizes medications when appropriate and keeps up to date on the latest advances and standards of care in her field. She is also an advocate for safely de-prescribing medications that are no longer necessary or may be causing side effects.
Her areas of interest are:
– Preventive health
– Women’s health
– Metabolic Health and Weight Management
– Chronic disease management
