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!!
