I'm writing on behalf of my Doctor, Dr. Shyam Bhaskar. There are not enough people in this world with the type of compassion and devotion to his patients like him. He cares for the well being of others. He is absolutely brilliant and humble. He saved my life. Along with the collective help of his staff, office manager and Fnp. They all aided in the help of my treatment and condition. Thank you so very much Dr. Bhaskar.

Dr. Bhaskar is the nicest and most compassionate caring physician I've seen since the 70s not many around now a day's. Very informative. The only thing I would like to change is his nurse assistant whom doesn't call in prescription refills when asked it's a ongoing problem for the last 4 months now.

I never met him. He was there for my 1st visit. I saw a nurse practitioner. She was ok. But staff is unprofessional. They lost the paper I gave them with a fax number and my prescriptions and medical supplies I need. It took over 2 weeks for them to straighten things out. I am on a feeding tube. I recently moved to the area. And was running low on my formula that provides all my nutrition. I think a doctor should be available for the 1st visit.

Well I don't like writing bad reviews but I've had the worst experience with this office. The people handling my personal information are upsetting. The doctor himself doesn't seem to read the chart because he doesn't even talk about what you're there for unless you bring it up and make him talk about it. The ladies at the front desk don't seem to know how to do their jobs and I hate it. I would not recommend them to anyone.

Dr. Bhaskar has a good reputation. But his office is poorly run and he is always so far behind schedule it is way beyond acceptable.Last time my husband had an appointment at 4:15. We arrived 10 minutes early, paid our $45 co-pay and waited. And waited. A drug rep was escorted back. No additional patients were seen. At 5:30, asked for a refund of our co-pay. Instead we were rescheduled, which is fine, but today I learned they billed our insurance company. Another hour on phone to fix that!

He is the most irresponsible Doctor I've ever met. He closed his clinic suddenly without giving any notice. He didn't even transfer his patient to any other Doctor.
