Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Doctor's take an oath to do no harm. STAY AWAY. When looking for a second opinion on a serious, but potentially VERY beneficial medication change. Dr. Bhandari's "Official Medical Review" is: "it's NOT used that often for THAT. " (Needless to say, it is, I was looking for OTHER things-like will it do this or that... Not, the medical community has it wrong and you have it right.) Look very closely at her credentials. From my knowledge, I believe her to professionally confused between a psychiatrist and a neurologist. I also believe after reading the other reviews she is MONEY motivated as she moonlights online. DO NO HARM.

Dr. Bhandari unfortunately works for Path Group. It is my considered opinion based on my personal experience that this is a corporate enterprise whose focus is on profits and there is no interest whatsoever in the patients. I wish Dr Bhandari and any and all of the employees of Path Group would try and create a true medical practice. I urge anyone considering any doctors help to stay far away from The Path Group. It is my experience that this is a vindictive corporate structure operating as stringent employers who control and dictate their employees (in this case doctors) from providing the legitimate and helpful service for which you seek the type of doctors they employ. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRACTICE, PLEASE.
