This Doctor is just out to get your money and get you out his office as soon as possible. He literally diagnosed my son within 5 minutes and right away prescribed medication.

Bhalla was the most unprofessional & disrespectful Dr. I have ever seen. He "diagnosed " my mid teen within the first 5 mins of meeting. He prescribed a very dangerous medicine and told me not to look at the side effects but to follow his dosing. I did look and was worried about dose as suggested methods showed a slow start and build but he was starting my child at full strength. I had my child start with half tablet. Next morni g called to discuss with him and he was so rude and aggressive because I questioned him that I hung up. He called back and yelled at me for hanging up and threatened to "report" me for not taking medical advice. Obviously we never returned.

He was terrible! Did not listen and made my son and I very uncomfortable. Barely spoke to my son before drastically changing medication he had taken for over a year. No intake process, wouldn't review his previous medical records or anything.
