I highly recommend Dr. Bhatia. He's everything a patient would want in a doctor. Besides being an excellent doctor, he is warm, caring and listens to the patient. I've never seemed rushed while in his presence. He is very professional yet has a sense of humor which I find refreshing in a doctor!

Dr. Bhatia is always courteous and friendly. He takes time to understand what pain I'm experiencing and explains my options. I have had a handful of injections in my lower back. Dr. Bhatia is always careful and precise. I've never experienced any issues, but he does take time to discuss possible complications. His office handles all my insurance issues to ensure the injections are covered. Highly recommend!!

One of the worst experiences I have had a doctor's office. I saw Dr. Bhatia, who not only was 30 minutes late to the appointment, but lacked complete interest and empathy towards my chronic pain. I wish I was kidding when I said he left the room in the middle of my asking a question, insisting that my appointment was over and there was nothing he could offer me. This was after he spent less than 5 minutes speaking with me. It's sickening that a healthcare professional can care so little

Dr Bhatia gave me a steroid shot for lower back problems. I'm an avid golfer and my lower back was hurting. I do exercises every morning for my back and don't like taking Ibuprofen everytime I play. Dr Bhatia took extra time to understand my situation and get clearance from my insurance provider. He was extremely careful in locating the injection site/angle. No pain or discomfort. I feel so much better. Great job to him and his assistants.

Dr Bhatia has been a great doctor, helping manage a very problematic situation from day one. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of care. Highly intelligent, and willing to take the time to explain details at a level that I can digest, without talking down to me. On top of that he is compassionate and has a great bedside manner with patients. Great guy all around.

I spent 3 weeks trying to make an appointment with Dr. Bhatia. The office led me to believe that if I sent them my medical records they would "be in touch," so I was happy to do so right away. After that I was persistent in trying to follow up and was able to confirm they did receive my chart, but eventually they just started ignoring my messages. i don't know what they're trying to pull and I don't know what they get from screwing with people who are chronically ill.
