Do you value your time? If you do, this Dr is not for you. Wait time has been 45 min -1 hour per visit. Today my appt was scheduled for 8:30, it would had been nice if the Dr was actually at the office when appts were scheduled. Dr Bhogal arrived at his office after 9, by 9:30 I still hadn't seen the Dr, I walked out. Won't be going back.
in Bakersfield, CA |
Lack of concern and patience in dealing with possibility of alternatives to a quick surgery for a diverticulosis condition. Poor bedside manner. Became angry when questioned regarding diet and possible alternatives. Will not return.

Been my Dr for 30 yrs. also husbands, very satisfied. Have recommended him to family and friends. I Must listen closely to understand him but he will repeat and slow down if you ask him to. If you don't understand what he is talking about he will go to his charts and show you on the charts.
in Bakersfield, CA |
Dr Bhogal comes highly recommended by his peers, however; I don't find him very easy to talk to. He is very intense, almost stern even. A little intimidating.
