Dr. Pankaj K. Bhatnagar performed a Robotic Laproscopic right Inguinal Hernia repair on me last week. The procedure went smoothly without any issues. I experienced mild discomfort during post surgey recovery and I didn't need any post operation pain medication during recovery. There was no infection and I am recovering well. I am thankful to the doctor for a job done well. He is excellent in his professional knowledge as well his behavior. Tribhuwan Choubey

Dr. PK.B removed my lipomos with 48 incisions in Feb 2015 and I ended up with 48 keloid scars and severe itching. With his experience he should have discussed with me, doing 1 or 2 incision instead he was not even aware that he was going to do 48 incisions until the day of the surgery. If he had followed proper work ethic, he should have known that the procedure cannot be reversed. Even wiki knows that people of color are more prone to Keloid scars. Permanently damaged my upper body with scars.

Dr. Bhatnagar repaired my inguinal hernia using mesh during an open (traditional) surgery. The operation is a total success. I was able to suppress the little pain I experienced afterward with nothing more than acetaminophen and ibuprofen. The day after surgery, I was up and around. The wound is healing nicely. Dr. Bhatnagar impressed me from day one with his knowledge and competence, and I am 100 percent satisfied with the outcome of the surgery. He and his team did a great job.

I will highly recommend Dr. Bhatnagar for breast cancer surgery. As you can imagine this was a highly stressful experience and besides the successful surgery, Dr. Bhatnagar explained the options and answered all of my questions.

I had my gall bladder removed. He never explained anything. Never took any time. Treated like it was a factory. Then afterwards, not even explaining anything about post op care. Had to call the office and see if and when to schedule a follow up visit. Was still in pain 2 weeks later and called again. The nurse tells me I shouldn't be in pain I should be healed. Can't see the doctor for another 2 weeks. I have to suffer in the meantime.

I am very grateful to Dr. PK and his staff. When I first met him his abruptness threw me for a second but honestly it engendered my trust in his capabilities. He is a no nonsense, knowledgeable, and competent surgeon with an excellent staff. He performed a hemrroidhectomy on me and from start to finish I felt safe and well taken care of. Two weeks later I am healing beautifully, good as new. He improved my quality of life, no greater gift can be given.
