Negative review: My scheduled operation was cancelled. I was not informed that my surgery was canceled until I arrived at the scheduled date/time in his office. I was informed by the receptionist. Nobody was available for comment, Poor management policy

This doctor sent a tissue sample to an out of state lab without my knowledge or consent and I finally was able to come up with a way to pay the bill without going hungry for a month. Just tell the patient what you're doing. Not a hard thing!!!

There's no words that can truly express the outstanding care I received from Dr Bansidhar & staff. Within a few weeks, Dr.B was able to accomplish more w/ me (multiple scopes, surgical procedure, images, genetics, & etc) when other physicians were being dismissive (past 5 yrs). Dr.B thoroughness & quick actions allowed me to start the healing processes. Employed in the healthcare arena...I can truly say that there are few of these Drs out there in the field & when you find them you better hang on to them for dear life. This practice will have your back no matter what, to make sure all is well w/you. Dr B. will reach out (call) even if it wasn't requested...I was so appreciative when this happen, it was a blessing in disguise.------July 15,2019
