This is probably the worst doctor I have personally ever encountered ... My father was diagnosed w/ IPF in July 2015. This had been his 2nd opinion and it was worse than the 1st! Thank The Lord that I am an ER nurse and found someone else more skilled for my father's pulmonology needs. He constantly talked over my father and I and basically told us there is nothing left to do ..please do your research before trusting in so called professionals such as this one

Hello was referred to this doctor from a primary care MD. When calling the office the receptionists asked me a question, I was not able to answer. I explained to her that I have a referral her for a sleep study. After taking this call the receptionist told me "we do not do sleep studies here" then repeated her question. I asked what would you recommend I do and was very rude with me and speaking to me in a disorderly tone. This is bad business now I will be going elsewhere.

Dearborn, MI |
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.!!!!!!!

Great Pulmonary and Sleep Doctor, Thank you for all your help over the years.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
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.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
I have been seeing Dr., Lal since 2008 and have been totally satisfied with his services. He is easy to talk to and very compassionate.
