Enormous confidence created by Dr. Bhagchandani, who is obviously a master of the intricacies of his specialties and has a knack for explaining his diagnosis in understandable language. His office also an extremely competent and caring staff.

My sister has had Dr. Bhagchandani for approximately 6 months. At every visit, he spends about 2-3 minutes in the room and does not seem interested in her well being. She has Pulmonary Fibrosis which is hard enough to deal with, but, when you have a Dr. that doesn't give you specifics about the disease, doesn't give you possible 'treatments' or therapies for the disease.........you end up walking out of the office with no answers, no hope, nothing. No satisfaction from this Dr.!!!!!!!

I referred my mother. One day in June of 2014, she broke her hip. She was recovering in a nursing home. the doctor there said for her to see her pulmonary doctor as she had pneumonia. I called Dr. Lal's office. She could not get in. So I called our primary. She had an appt. in 2 days. But she died the night before. I believe she could of had a chance to live if she was seen asap.

I will recommend Dr. Lal to my family and friends.

My physically and mentally disabled son has been a patient for over 10 years. Dr Lal and his staff have always treated him with respect, compassion and affection. He takes his time explaining medical issues and listens to family's feedback. I would recommend Dr Bhagchandani without hesitation.
in PARKLAND FL |
DR BHAGCHANDI IS extremely knowledgeable and was able to handle my son in laws chronic chest pains with medication . we had already seen other doctor first. he has handled my sleep apnea issues , as well . I would recommend him as a great doctor and diagnostician .
in Coral Springs, Florida |
Dr Lal has been helping me for almost 10 years. I have been a firefighter for 37 years--we already have sleep issues. However, Dr Lal diagnosed me with obstructive sleep apnea and I have seen marked improvement since using cpap therapy that Dr Lal prescribed. I wrote about this in my book THE ART of Effective Communication for the fire officer and plan on having Dr Lal on my radio show in the future. I would highly recommend ANYONE having sleep issues to make an appointment and see Dr Lal.
in lantana, FL |
wonderful, helpful, informative staff very positive experience
in Coconut Creek, FL |
Dishonest. Dr was not in the office, has a practitioner nurse see you and charge for a regular appointment.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
If I could give a 0 I would. Dr. B spent three minutes with me (not one minute more). He read the result of my test and told me what I already knew, that I need a CPAP. When I requested an explanation for his decision regarding a CPAP vs. an APAP he was really upset and impatient and left the room stating it's the best but no explanation. APAP is a newer and better technology that costs exactly the same as the CPAP but he adamantly refused to discuss with me why he chose a CPAP for me.
Dr Lal Bhagchandani is the most unprofessional doctor my families have ever seen. He doesn't take time to explain my family member's condition (the minute he enters the examination room, no more than 2 mins, he wants to leave the room without discussing my family member's condition), seems to me that he doesn't care to listen to our concern and answer them accordingly . He gets impatient and rude when we ask questions, we also felt like he belittled us. I would not recommend him to anyone.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
I had to wait about 20 minutes...not bad. The office is very small but clean. Dr. B was nice, friendly and I have no complaints. The office staff is very busy but they were also nice.
