Devashis A. Mitra, MD, DM (PhD)

Devashis A. Mitra, MD, DM(PhD) is a well established independent Rheumatologist in Western PA. He practices with the belief that the patient is the only important aspect of a medical practice and should be the primary focus for a physician. As a strong clinician, he cares deeply for his patients and strives to improve each and every one's quality of life. He is popularly known by his colleagues as the “thinking doctor.”


A graduate of Government Medical College, Nagpur, India in 1985, he completed DM(PhD) from Bath University in England. An academic for over 17 years, he consolidated his foundations in rheumatology at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath, England, an institution practicing rheumatology since 1739 AD. He relocated to USA in 1995 and continued his academic journey at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC. He is an accomplished Rheumatologist who has been practicing for over 35 years and has published over 35 scientific articles in numerous peer reviewed international journals, written chapters for textbooks and has lectured on his research at national and international levels. He has also participated in numerous clinical trials for well known pharmaceutical companies and has served as an expert guest lecturer for them.


His foray into private practice led him to start Mitra Arthritis and Osteoporosis Center, PC in Butler, PA in 2002, now a well established tertiary care referral center for patients with rheumatic disorders. The practice draws patients from all over western Pennsylvania as well as from neighboring states such as Ohio, Maryland and Michigan. He is deeply committed to his local community, providing free medical care through the Free Community Clinic in Butler, and believes his biggest tribute is when his established patients refer other patients. One of Devashis Mitra's biggest gifts is to listen from the heart, and offer holistic care with dignity, respect and compassion.
