*** ****** ****** ** *** ** *** **** ***** *********** ** *** *******. I have met three other sleep specialists before meeting her and thus I understand how she stands apart above all of them. She has 34 years of experience but her approach is very modern & scientific which most of the old generation doctors seem to lack.
My name is deepak Kumar bhawsingka and I came to know about this sleep test from Mr rajesh rungta my brother in law.
I,Mr.Bhupesh Arora,was facing sleep apnoea symptoms to be very specific I was having excessive daytime sleepiness,snoring and this was putting an impact on my work and home activities as well so after going to so many specialists I was not cured at all and then reading blogs related to sleep disorders I got idea that what issue I can have I visited her and got sleep study from her place.I was diagnosed sleep apnoea to come out of this she advised clap device and now I am 90 percent improved.thanks to her.
The doctor had very good vibes. I have taken my mother to a lot of doctors before, but the way Dr. Bhatia talked, understood and explained things, it was very satisfying. She makes you feel comfortable. You get a sense of trust and confidence. It is too soon to talk about the results, but chances look positive.
