I saw Dr Bhakta today for first time as I was checking around for a new Dr.....he is AWSOME! He is very thorough & doesn't rush you. He is very kind & always asking if you need any refills of anything. I also like the fact that they do blood work there & ultra sounds. I'm so glad I met this wonderful Dr. Don't hesitate to see this one!

Dr Bhakta is a wonderful doctor who takes his time with his patients. I have referred a number of family members to him. His office help and MA can be very ritgeous and rude. The front office manager would be fired if she worked for me. She is always rude.
