I have nothing but great things to say about my experience with Dr. Bhandari and his practice. I was referred to Dr. Bhandari for treatment of a kidney tumor that was recently discovered and from the moment I contacted his office, I was treated with the upmost care, comfort and respect. He was able to expedite my nephrectomy to which i am 6 days now post-surgery and appear to be healing well so far. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Bhandari.

I was referred to Dr.Bhandari from Dr Bruck. He diagnosed my problem after a long and rising PSA. He removed my Prostate last Friday and a week later took out the catheter. I was very worried when told after 2 years I had prostrate cancer . He was extremely professional and called me back and councilor me through the process. Today I was told no radiation or chemotherapy needed now. Awesome news. Our prayers were answered. Thanks to my friend Dr. Bruck. A super urologist, Dr. Bhandari, and his nurses doctors and staff at Mt Sanai on Miami Beach for fixing me up. Blessings to all Capt. Gary Nichols

Whenever I go to see a new doctor, I pay very close attention to the way I’m treated by his staff. Every person that I have dealt with in ‘this office has been efficient, respectful and caring enough to take the time to listen to me and guide me in the right direction. Yara, Dr. Bhandari’s assistant, was great. She, as well as the doctor himself, took the time to call me to discuss my test results and review my options. Nothing is always perfect, but so far for me, this is as good as it gets if you need competent medical treatment in a timely manner. I highly recommend Dr. Bhandari and this office if you’re in need of urological services. You won’t be disappointed.

As usual, very smooth, everyone was very courteous, and no hitches. Dr Bhandari listened carefully to my descriptions, and provided the best options for my situation. As he said, he is on my “side.” Great to have a skilled, knowledgeable doctor on one’s side!
