Splendid experience with Dr. Bhatia. She knows how to connect with patients across ages and backgrounds. You can tell she genuinely cares. I had a scary health scare, even as I'm a very fit person.

I do not recommend the doctor
Rude doctor. Didn't care to explain or take the time to explain what could be done to reduce the pain. Doctors are expected to talk to comfort patients. Not recommended.
