What People Say About Dr. Narender Bhatia, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had my son via emergency c-section in 1999. Thank God this guy was the obgyn surgeon available at Long Beach Memorial during that time. He is not friendly nor is he fatherly or chatty. He was however, precise, knew what he was doing and he will get you and your child out of there alive. Fast forward to when I had my other son in 2016, my obgyn teamed up with this guy for my scheduled c-section. I was on the cold metal table and my ob and Dr. Bhatia were chatting about my surgery 15 years ago. I felt like I was in the nail salon while 2 ladies are chit chatting in Vietnamese. I told them, guys, I'm numbed but I can hear you chatting about me. As my ob gyn says, Dr Bhatia is never going to win Mr. Congeniality anywhere, but if your life is on the line, this guy is your guy.

Our experience with Dr. Bhatia was extremely friendly and professional. Both my Daughters had their deliveries supervised by him and I have great respect. Very happy to say that I'm thankful he was there. The Nursing Staff at Long Beach Memorial were equally excellent. Thanks.

Worst Dr. ever! He was the doctor on call for the day I had my daughter, turns out she was in a bridge position and from a regular Dr. appointment ended up in the hospital with this doctor for a c-section. He was very rude, and questioned all my request, before the surgery I ask him if I can hold my daughter right after taking her out, his words...”she is going to be all dirty, full of fluids and all kinds of stuff “ “Are you sure you want to hold her like that?” Can you believe this!

My Dr. was away on vacation and he was Dr. on call for that night at Memorial Hospital. This Dr. is terrible, poor bedside manner kept pushing that I have vaginal labor even though the baby hated all the contractions and I was dead tired after almost 36 hrs in labor. The poor nurses kept excusing him for his behavior. The worst experience and I still needed a c section, an emergency one, thanks to him my husband missed the birth thinking he had time. I hope I never see this man again.

He was the rudest Doctor I've ever come across, unfortunately my doctor was on vacation and this doctor assisted my birth. I've had so many complications and still dealing with them 3months post partum. I couldn't walk for over a month. I feel he was medically negligent and should just quit already or retire. He was in such a horrible mood and extremely rude. If you hear his name run, don't look back just run!!! He deserves a -star
