While Dr. Bhatnager spends time with and listens to her patients, she often forgets to inform her staff, or her staff doesn't order tests or send orders for tests. The staff is very young and untrained - one told my spouse over the phone the results of her mammogram over the phone saying 'you don't have cancer'. I'm leaving her due to her office and staff help

I have been a patient of Dr Bhatnagar’s for 13 years and love her! She carefully listens and then orders whatever tests or medications are necessary. She also doesn’t over medicate with antibiotics. Since she gives me all of the time I require at every appointment, which sometimes can be quite lengthy, this obviously makes her run late for the next patients.... I do allow for plenty of waiting time for “my turn” to get her full attention, but I’ve always found it to be worth it!

I appreciate Dr Bhatnagar. I have been going to her since 2009. That alone should tell you something. She take the time and listen to you about your health and make the recommendation to you based on your ailment(s). This is a built relationship of caring for her patients well being. There has never been no more than a 30 minute wait time in her office. Even if I did experience more than 20-30 minutes wait time in her office she is worth the wait, for my quality of life. I referred my daughter

Like Dr. Bhatnagar. Not impressed with her Assistant Nicole. I sat 30 minutes past my appointment for my yearly physical. My appointment was 2:15.. Did not go back until 2:45. A week ago I had a blood test. Still waiting for result. I called this morning. Left message. No response. This is unacceptable. No common courtesy. I'm getting close to finding another doctor.

Very quick with her patients. Does not seem concerned and passes you off to another doctor if there's any question as to what's wrong.

She listens to what you have to say and takes her time with you. Finds the least expensive medicine if you need too.
