Glendale, CA |
Dr. Bhoot performed an emergency laparoscopic appendectomy on me. It was successful, quick, and I am pleased with the minimal scars on my abdomen from the procedure. Dr. Bhoot was great at assuring me prior to the surgery of expectations and his competency. He is very knowledgable and efficient.
Excellent doctor! Dr bhoot fixed 3 hernias for me at once and my mid section looks amazing! Highly recommend.

I have waiting on authorization for my weight loss surgery. But, I wanted to let people new to Dr. Bhoot know my thoughts on his practice. Since I stepped in the door Dr. Bhoot and his staff treated me with respect and courtesy. He answered all our questions regarding the procedures that he performs. His staff was quick to set up appointments required for the procedure, including dietician, GI procedure, and he performed an endoscopy on myself. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to all patients.
