    The very best Doctor one can ever hope for. So happy I am under his care.
    in Culver City, CA |
    He has been our cardiologist and primary physician for a decade or more. Just talking with him makes us feel good! He's always given wise advice and often saved us from more drastic treatments recommended by some other doctors.

    Dr. Bhatia is fantastic. A friend whom I asked for a referral recommended him, and did I ever luck out. I had my first visit with him and walked away after a comprehensive checkup knowing that I was in expert hands. He is thorough, incredibly knowledgeable, and personable to the nth degree. He is truly somebody who loves what he is doing. Thank you, Dr. Bhatia, for your care and professionalism.

    Dr. Bhatia IS the doctor you WISH you had. I have been in California for seven years and had not found a doctor that I was totally confident in seeing, until now! Not only does he take the time to effectively discuss procedures and results, but he also is a huge proponent of preventative medicine. The office was immaculate, with nearly no wait, and incredible technology. Within minutes of taking an X-Ray, I viewed it on a big screen TV in his office. All healthcare should be like this! WOW!

    Dr. Bhatia is one extraordinary physician and in my opinion, one of the best in his field. Detail oriented, he performs his exam with great precision and capacity. Well versed, he was able to explain my diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plan with simplicity to ease my mind. From this point forward to all my friends and family for referrals, he will always be my first choice for all things Cardiology and Internal Medicine.

    Dr. Bhatia is the most attentive doctor I've had in a long while. He actually listens without interrupting. His practice is modern in that you can communicate electronically which makes his response time extremely efficient. I'm so pleased to have him in my healthcare corner!

    A big thank you to Dr. Bhatia and his staff for all their care. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars. There are not enough good words to say about him. My husband and I have been going to him for the past 2 years. He is very knowledgeable, caring, sensitive to your needs, and warm, with excellent bedside manner. When you are at his office and under his care, you know you are in great hands. The office staff is also very friendly, organized, and attuned to the patient's needs.

    Dr. Bhatia prolonged my life. I had no idea that I had a heart problem until I visited Dr. Bhatia and had numerous tests to determine if indeed there was a problem. There were no symptoms prior to getting tested. Tests revealed that I had several blocked arteries and it was just a matter of time before the Silent Killergot me. I have the utmost respect and trust for Dr. Bhatia. He gave me a new lease on life.There are not enough words to express my gratitude to the best Dr. I've ever had.
    in Los Angeles, CA |
    I switched over to Dr. Bhatia when my prior cardiologist left the firm. He was recommended by another doctor, and also by a friend. I've never seen such a whirlwind of a doctor. In my first visit he scheduled me for an echocardiogram, a stress test with dye injection; and a carotid artery scan. He told me I needed a pneumonia shot, a Shingles shot (even though I never had chicken pox), and a Tetanus shot. He did extensive blood tests also. He's thorough, pleasant, well-versed, top-drawer!
    in Los Angeles, CA |
    I started visiting Dr. Bhatia's practice five years ago. It was the best health decision I made to keep a track of my family's health. He not only instills confidence but is extremely knowledgable and friendly. I am a person who likes to ask lots of questions, Dr.Bhatia, while busy due to the number of patients waiting to see him, he takes the time to explain everything, obviously keeping up with the latest developments in his field. He genuinely cares about his patient's well being.

    Overall the most amazing Doctor I have ever been to. I never feel rushed, Dr. Bhatia Is a smart, passionate, and very through physician. He is always there to answer my questions. I would give him 10 stars if I could.
    in Los Angeles, CA |
    Dr. Bhatia has been my cardiologist for 15 years. I recently went in because my BP and pulse had suddenly jumped up. Dr. Bhatia sees the whole picture. He doesn't just prescribe pills to treat symptoms. He looks very thoroughly for the underlying causes of the symptoms. I do not like taking medication unless its absolutely necessary and I like it that Dr. Bhatia practices preventative health care and he is willing to work with me to resolve my health issues instead of solely treating symptoms.
    in Los Angeles, CA |
    This man obviously loves what he does. He is a consummate professional who provides a bedside manner that instills confidence in facing whatever you health concerns are. To top it off he's a lovely human being.

    Dr. Bhatia Always has taken the time to answer all my questions and is truly a excellent Doctor !!
    in Chicago, IL |
    There are no words capable of characterizing Dr. Bhatia. One can use humble, brilliant, sincere, incredible, dedicated to a fault, and those come close. He has been my doctor since 1991, when I first met him in Culver City, CA. He is the sole reason I am still alive. I have some severe medical conditions, which he handles with his usual grace and brilliance. I currently live in Chicago, but I vew it no more than a half-day travel to see him. I would recommend no one else.
