We were so fortunate to find Dr. Bhayani when my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He cam e highly recommended online and from my PCP, and completely lived up to it . He spent an tremendous amount of time with us and answered all of our questions. He was honest, empathetic, and so clear in his explanations. He did the Whipple operation like a pro in 4 hours! My father bounced back from surgery but most importantly, Dr. Bhayani was there every step of the way.

After a new diagnosis of cancer, I was really shaken and not sure what to expect when meeting the surgeon. Dr. Bhayani's demeanor showed so much genuine concern for me and immediately put me at ease. It was a VERY long visit because I had so many questions, but he patiently answered all of them. Very knowledgeable and confident. The surgery went great and I am CANCER-FREE. He took the time to care for me but also care about me. What a great human being, physician and surgeon.

I feel extremely fortunate to have had Dr. Bhayani as my surgeon. From the first moment he was well prepared to discuss my situation. His analysis of my medical problem was well informed and knowledgeable, and his treatment recommendations were delivered with a comforting professional confidence. He spent as much time with me as I wanted, and his advice for my recovery period was spot-on. Having surgery is not fun, but Dr. Bhayani's careful hand and exceptional skills got me through it.

Dr Bhayani was the flawless professional I had hoped for. He briefed me thoroughly prior to the surgery and explained his additional expertise in the area of Gallbladder. He has superior communication skills. I also asked him if he would remove an additional cyst I had so I did not have to go through this twice. His staff took care of insurance paperwork and it was done perfectly. The good news is the surgery wounds healed very fast and were not a problem for me.

Dr. Bhayani is the absolute best surgeon ever! He is kind and very much in tune to the patient's feelings. All surgeries make me nervous and Dr. Bhayani spent time with me to answer all my questions to put me at ease. He is patient and understanding. My surgery was a breeze. I had my gallbladder removed and he did an excellent job. I had heard horror stories about the scars and not being able to eat like before. I have had zero problems since my surgery and my scars all healed up very nicely.

I would most definitely recommend Dr. Bhayani to other patients. He had a calm, kind manner about him that was very reassuring to me. My health issue was causing me great concern, and anxiety. He thoroughly explained my condition, and what would take place with my upcoming surgery. He greatly reduced my fears. I went into surgery with full confidence, knowing I had a very skilled, professsional doctor.

My experience with Dr. Bhayani was the best I have ever experienced in a long time. He has so much compassion for his pacentices. He takes the time to explain everything you need to know and all the option that you have, and explains it so you can understand. I live out of town and would make the trip to Torrance if I ever needed medical treatment in his field. He treated my Mother with the utmost care and kindness. Thank you so much Dr. Bhayani.

My experience with Dr. Bhayani has been glowingly positive. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. After determining that a standard surgical treatment is contraindicated for me due to another existing condition, he referred me to an out-of-network provider for an alternative procedure that my health plan considered as investigational and denied. Over the next 6 months, he spent time supporting me appeal this denial, which was finally overturned by the DMHC through IMR. Thank you

Dr. Bhayani is the best! We had our first consultation on January 14, 2016. Simply by reviewing the CT scan and MRI's we brought with us, he was able to inform us that I did not have a mass in my pancreas that could possibly be malignant as originally diagnosed by doctors in Las Vegas. You can imagine what a relief it was to hear this good news. Subsequent surgery by Dr. Bhayani to remove the cyst from my pancreas eliminated frequent abdominal pain I had for many years.
