(Topeka, Kansas, December 12, 2019) – Stormont Vail Health and Cotton O’Neil is proud to announce that Rashmi Thapa, M.D., will join our team and practice as a cardiologist, located at Cotton O’Neil Manhattan, 1133 College Ave, Suite E-110, Manhattan, Kansas.
Dr. Thapa was drawn to the field of medicine because of her mother who worked in a library of a nursing school. Being around nursing staff and physicians helped her to realize that becoming a physician was the path for her.
“The feeling of being useful to society and the joy of improving the lives of our patients is what keeps me coming into the office each day,” Dr. Thapa said. “I take the time to listen to the problems of our patients and at the same time, continue providing the care that they need to overcome these conditions so that they can lead a healthier and happier life.”
Dr. Thapa earned her medical degree in 2007 from Tribhuvan University, Institute of Medicine, Kathmandu, Nepal. Dr. Thapa completed her Internal Medicine residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tennessee in 2011. She then completed her fellowship in Cardiovascular Diseases at the University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, Kansas in 2014.
Dr. Thapa has founded some not for profit organizations. She does charitable work in Kansas as well as her home country of Nepal. She enjoys hiking and traveling back to Nepal.
