Dr. Bhardwaj is a caring and kind Dr. I have been to other pulmonologist before but none are as good as Dr. Bhardwaj. He listens carefully to what you are saying and answers all questions. He tries to give you the best medication that will work for you. He cares about his patients. I would definitely recommend him.

Never in USA had a doctor take my vitals himself because he cares too much about his patient and his work that he cannot trust a nurse with correct vitals. I waited 3 hours to see him but he is worth the wait.

Dr. Bhardwaj is one of the most knowledgable physicians I have met. He really took the time to listen and understand my history and medical problems.... He clearly cares about his patients in a way many doctors do not. The wait time is somewhat long (~45 mins/1hr), but it was worth the wait. I would highly recommend him to everyone I know and will definitely be returning!!
