This doctor is extremely over priced! He charged over $1200 for a 45 min office visit. Cost me 679.00 over what insurance deemed reasonable and acceptable. I would not recommend this doctor or office.

I was referred to Dr. Bhandarkar by my medical groups ENT. He knew I needed another sinus surgery and it needed to be done by a qualified, highly skilled surgeon. I was able to get in almost immediately to be assessed, review of medical conditions/surgeries, and review of CT scan. After a very thorough exam and time spent asking questions and listening to my answers he started the process to get me in to have surgery. Surgery happened fast and I have never felt so well in years! He is amazing

Dr. Bhandarkar is absolutely amazing. After suffering several years of constant , miserable sinus issues, and going from one ENT to the next, who would just subscribe yet more antibiotics, my last ENT referred me to Bhandarkar, who immediately figured out my issues, and scheduled sinus surgery. Less than 1 week later, I feel better than I have in years, and hope it just keeps getting better. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind and down to earth, as is his wonderful staff!! He is the BEST!!
