Very worst experience I have ever had..I had sub clinical hypothyroidism of tsh 4.960 (Avg Range : 0.450-4.500 (uIU/mL)) and I was treated with 75mcg of Synthroid which lead me to hyperthyroidism with tsh 0.4. I was again prescribed with 100mcg of synthroid daily and 75 mcg every alternative day of levothyroxine in extra which didn't make any sense. I had my second opinion with my family doctor in India and he asked me to discuss with the Doctor again as he suggest this is not a correct medication. When I called back them to enquire I didn't have proper response. When I question about the prescription the nurse replied me to forget about the Doctor prescription and suggested with just 50mcg of Levethyroxine. Please don’t make your life risk by visiting him.

Jon B. – Nov 21, 2019
Dr. Bhatt is the most compassionate, knowledgeable, and gregarious physician! If there were more than 5 stars, he would receive them from our entire family. He is more than a doctor...a listener, a people person, and a caring human being.
