Patient Comments (8)
Brentwood, TN |
This office is very slow to respond, they never return calls or answer the phone. It's apparent the staff are overworked or her patient load is too much to handle. Beware and be cautious that it could take several days before you hear back from them. they don't call in prescriptions as promised.

She takes her time and listens!

Dr. Dhar LISTENS. That is something missing in so many doctors today. She cares. Dr. Dhar has been my Primary Care Physician for years and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else.

I have had great experiences with Dr.Dhar and her staff. She is very good at explaining everything that comes up during a visit, and is very non-judgemental and professional when asking questions about my lifestyle and health. The only thing I would give as advice to potential patients is that the visits are very straight to the point , so if you have multiple concerns you should mention them when you schedule the appointment.

Dr. Dhar and her staff are wonderful! I have been going to her for over 5 years and she has always treated me with respect and I feel like she always listens to my concerns. Office is very clean and staff is very friendly! I highly recommend going to Dr. Dhar for all of your healthcare needs!

I have gone to see Dr Dhar a handful of times in the past year. The first time I saw her, I hadn't been to a Dr in 3 yrs, since my son was born. I asked for a physical because I just felt like something was off in my body. Without doing blood work or anything, she told me I was being paranoid and prescribed me antidepressants. Later I went to the er & was told I had cysts on my ovaries. Fast fwd 6 months later, I go back to dhar for more cyst problems & she prescribes IBS med, Er fixed that too.

Dr. Dhar has been our family doctor since about 2006. She is caring and compassionate and efficient, and I always feel she listens to my input. If I struggle with compliance I am encouraged rather than judged. I am made a part of every medical decision and she makes sure I understand the plan and answers any questions I have. She uses the computer well, by which I mean it doesn't get in the way of the face-to-face interaction but everything is documented by the time our session is through.
