Patient Comments (3)
Levittown, NY |
Totally incompetent technologically challenged. Poor English. Confused. Asked what medications I would like for him to prescribe. Should not be a doctor.
Hicksville, NY |
Dr. Bhat is only interested in seeing my healthy 21 year old son every 3 months so he can bill the insurance and push specialty doctors in his group, even though my son has already established care with other doctors in the area. His office staff failed to explain that this is how this practice, Advantage Care Physicians, is set up. I have not been ablet to obtain a referral from the office for my son's endocrinologist and am still waiting for the supervisor to call me back. Don't go there!

Dr. Bhat should not be practicing medicine. For one, he is very unprofessional; the few visits that I had with him were ridden with a complete sense of confusion. On numerous occasions, he made disparaging comments about my condition, both in private and with staff, often smirking to himself upon making them. Also, he will ask the same question over and over (e.g. do you suffer from Asthma?); I honestly think he is going senile. Finally, he asks YOU what medication he should prescribe?
