What People Say About Dr. Sarbpaul Bhalla, MD

Very pleasant, professional , not pushy , just right! Dr Bhalla just did an arthroscopic surgery on my knee and I am recovering nicely. No bruise, no swelling, clean stitches, knee feels better and very surprised at how smoothly it went. I highly recommend him. I was told I needed a total knee replacement and he told me I didn't. Very relieved not to have had to go through major surgery! C.H. In Seal Beach

BEWARE! BEWARE! ALWAYS get a 2nd opinion. I went to see Dr.Bhala for a spine issue and mentioned I had glute pain also, he took x-rays and told me my hips where bone to bone and I needed immediate hip replacement (shocker). I wanted a second opinion from a hip specialist, and so glad I did. I was told by the hip orthopedic surgeon that I had mild osteoarthritis but was NOT bone to bone and did not need hip replacement. I was shocked that Bhalla was going to do hip replacement on both WOW!

This doctor actually listens to the patient. Because he did so, he was able to provide viable solutions and advice on after-care. I find this to be the most important part of the process.
