First class from Jodie in his office to Dr. Bhat. Very professional doctor easy to talk to and explained everything. Dr. Bhat called with my results which I thought was awesome. Took time from his busy day to call. Would definitely recommend Dr. Bhat.

Dr. Bhat is a very patient and great doctor. He ordered me a colonoscopy. He told me he would not leave my case until he is 100% sure what I had is gone. He’s extremely nice and friendly and listens well to the patients questions.

This procedure was way better than the one I had 12 years ago which was done by another physician. Also, Dr Bhat called me 1 week after the procedure to share the results of the biopsy. I am very pleased.
