Initially I was impressed with Dr. Bhinder. She diagnosed me and got my illness under control. I returned to work & my career. I did have to cut back constant doctor visits. I tell Bhinder's staff that my primary care doc can manage my illness so I can limit time off work for Dr. visits.Fast fwd. 6 yrs. My illness is out of control again so I go to Dr. Bhinder. She tells me she doesn't want to interfere w/my career w/dr. Appts.-as cold as ice.They had note in my chart&she held grudge Bad Doc!

Dr Bhinder cancelled my initial appt 6 times (3 were the same day, day before my appt). I finally agreed to see PA but was reassured that Dr would see me @ my next appt to go over test results. I verified @ reminder call & when checking in, but PA walked in. Gave me 2 wrong diagnosis (verified by 3 other Drs later) & wanted to start me on treatment that day (that would have really harmed me as I don't have that disease. Couldn't answer my questions & said the dr was too busy for her to ask my ?s

So glad I didn't pay attention to the bad reviews. Dr. Bhinder was compassionate and really listened. I didn't feel rushed and she was proactive in my care. Her staff is wonderful too! So glad I saw her today!

Dr Bhinder does not take the time to listen, she is not interesting in finding the actual problem.

Dr Bhinder is one of the rudest doctors I've ever met. I've seen her 3 times and 2 of the 3 she has been very rude. Does not seem to me like she cares much about how her patients feel and spends little time with them.

I have tried for of three months to see this Doctor with not luck. I am now looking for one that has a staff that knows what they are doing. She has the worst ever. I called to see this doctor and was told that she needed my records from the doctor I am seeing now before she see?s me. Thay lost my info and 3 months later nothing form her staff. Time to move on.

Most unfriendly staff I've ever encountered at a physician's office. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. Not a smile, hello or good morning from the front desk or the medical assistant.
