What People Say About Dr. Mukesh Bhakta, DPM

Just left Dr. Bhakta office. It was one of the worst experiences we have ever encountered. The doctor's chairside manner was borderline rude, void of compassion and concern, with no medical recommendations other than a sarcastic remark to my husband stating "I'm not in your closet, do not know what kind of shoes you have". A very futile attempt at condescension. His assistant was the complete opposite of him. She was professional, informative, knowledgeable and caring. Thank you Jennifer.

I just came from Dr. Bhakta's office, where his receptionist and nurse were very helpful, polite and professional. To my great surprise and delight, Dr. Bhakta took a careful look at my feet and said that my Board certified dermatologist was mistaken when he concluded that I had a toenail fungus. Instead, Dr. Bhakti concluded that the abnormalities of my toenails was the result of wearing improperly fitting shoes, cramping the normal growth of my toenails. What a relief! Highly recommended.

My experience with Dr. Bhakta and his staff was a very positive experience; I don't think it could have been better. I was able to get an appointment within two days. Dr. Bhakta and his staff were professional, prompt and courteous and I believe he pinpointed my health concerns and prescribed a remedy that will be readily successful. I am definitely pleased and would highly recommend his services.
