Dr.Bambi spends little time with me,talked extremely fast,no time for questions,no real explainations.He was talking on his recorder before I was finished talking.He constantly had staff call and give me a new appointment timeI was constantly being rescheduled for his convenience on Sundays of all times and when I would change it they would tell me that he gives the apt to fit in with his schedule.One week I had to reschedule several times.I was told he has several practices and is a very busy man.I switched another Dr. Who actually cares about his patients.Cannot recommend.

As one physician critiquing another, I can honestly say I am ashamed to know this individual is a colleague. The brevity of his interactions are to the point of sheer rudeness. He did not offer to share his physical findings, nor did he state his treatment plan. After performing the physical exam, Brijesh Bhambi merely said, "Follow me." We walked out of the exam room, down the hall, and he pointed to the counter/check out area saying,"They'll get you set up." When I asked "For what?", the man walked away. There were no explanations or opportunity for questions. Granted, I had rather have a surgeon or cardiologist that is intelligent and good with their hands, as opposed to one that has a great sense of humor and a good personality. However, Dr. Bhambi presents himself in an extremely unprofessional manner, which makes me question his true medical skills. Personally, I will be using another cardiologist and will not recommend this physician to anyone.

I saw Dr. Bhambi for the second time today. I found him a very caring and compassionate doctor. It takes me a few times to get comfortable with a new doctor but today was good.

Over the past several years I have had 2 angioplasty procedures (stent placement) and 3 angiograms, all performed by Dr. Bhambi. I trust him completely. He does talk fast and he does record his observations but, contrary to the experience of some other reviewers, he always takes the time to fully explain my medical options and answers all of my questions. I would not go anywhere else. He is simply the best cardiologist in Bakersfield.

Could not understand him. He talks too fast and assumes i know aa much as he does. Wanted to run a very expensive test because I have good insurance. He cancelled my 2nd appointment less than 24 hours before with no apology or explanation from his staff. His staff is the WORST. Very uncaring and snotty.

Excellent doctor with great knowledge. I have a very strong level of trust in him. He figured out the medical problem my wife was dealing with so quickly where other hospitals and doctors could not find out and sent us home.

Dr. Bhambi has been my Cardiologist for the last 15+ years. After my bypass, he has played an incredible role in restoring and maintaining my cardiovascular health. During each visit he listens and guides me appropriately when I am facing challenging issues. I have complete confidence in him!
