Having been a patient of Dr. Bhambhani's for a few years I can say she has zero compassion. She talks about how she cares about patients and they come first, but she and her providers bully their patients into having extra procedures like injections, ablations, and spinal cord stimulators. If the patient's decline we are threatened with discharge from the practice. She and her providers will lower dosages of patient's necessary medications if they refuse a procedure. I have had very bad experiences with spinal injections in the past that have not been beneficial, and I will not have a spinal cord stimulator due to all of the poor outcomes from support groups I've checked out. Yet, I was told that my pain must not be all that bad since I don't want these procedures done. She told me that I clearly don't need my medications like tramadol or pregabalin. I have even heard her tell patients with sickle cell and endometriosis that they don't really have pain

I can’t say enough. The most caring and professional doctor I’ve ever had. I feel like God brought me to Dr B and I’m so lucky. Also Chris her assistant is wonderful.

Most caring help I've received in a long time. After 10 years of suffering, someone who actually has knowledge of spinal nerves and can address pain.

After being a patient for four years, she just drooped me, while my hands are going numb. She is a very cold, mean, materialistic, and selfish person who judges fat people deeply. She is hardly ever in the practice anymore, NP's do everything for her now. Hell, I am was not even sure if she was the one doing my procedures toward the end, would go in expecting her, and saw another old part time retired doctor. This doctor does not care about you as a person, she only cares about her bottom-line.

Absolutely horrible. It requires an appointment where they don’t treat you to answer a question correctly that would have had me avoid this joke of a place.

Called in excruciating pain and I was scheduled the next day for an appointment. Staff was extremely helpful in calling my primary care doctor to have my referral and records faxed over. The doctor was very caring and explained everything thoroughly. I was then scheduled for an injection within 2 days. The doctor was very personable and gave me her personal cell number to contact her if I had any questions or concerns from my procedure over the 3 day weekend. I highly recommend this office!

Dr. Bhambani is caring and skilled. Her pain management gave me an extra five years before spinal surgery was required. Then, in the months prior to my December 2015 L4-L5-S1 operation, she tried every possible avenue of relief, including a recent innovation used only since 10/14 in veterans hospitals; I found even my surgeon was not aware of that. Her injections are efficiently administered and painless.
