Jerk left me very sick. Told me my paralysis was all in my head. That I was depressed! He was very wrong. I don't trust his judgement.

i felt faint and light headed one day so i went to the urgent care center where they ruled out a stroke or cardiac event....they referred me to Dr. Bhawsar to follow up ...to see if i had any undetected neurological condition. I found him to be delightful, caring and competent. He made a diagnosis of a vaso vagal response which is a minor reaction to stress, foods, or sudden shifts in balance.

Bhawsar is worst doctor I've ever seen. He ignored my serious physical symptoms and instead told me I was depressed. I ended up hospitalized within the week. I don't recommend him to anyone.

My experience with this Dr. was very unpleasant. I did not feel he listened to my issues, he honestly made me feel like I didn't know what I was talking about when it came to my issues. He constantly interrupted me when I tried to explain myself or looked out the window while I was talking. He was very dismissive, rude and condescending in my view and I did not like it. I will not be going back to this doctor and would not recommend him for myself or my family. Very unpleasant experience!

Hello... I found this neurologist after I had a huge scare at the ER. He was straight, to the point, asked direct questions, completly explained all my efinal reports from the ER, he then performed his own exam and made me feel at ease. Very professional in his practice. I would definetly recommend.

I was recommended to this group by my primary. I did a web search and was encouraged to read the reviews by other patients which encouraged me to make an appointment with this Doctor. I was very pleased to learn that his reviews were spot on. He did not talk down to me, was frank, without being rude, and made suggestions for me to consider regarding available treatments. I would highly recommend this doctor to any and all seeking medical help.
