What People Say About Dr. Muralikrishna Bhat, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. M Bhat was curt, dismissive, uncaring, walked out of office mid conversation while discussing medical needs. No discussion of treatment plans or steps for follow up. Refusal for workplace accomidation note because no note from other doctor. Terrible patient care. Office staff was amazing and helpful in resolving issues with physician.

I moved from Austin to Tucson and was able to get Dr Bhat as an Internist. I thought my Dr in Austin was great but Dr Bhat is much better. He was very thorough and made me feel like he had all the time necessary for my needs. I recommend him with no hesitation.
