He treats you like an assembly line and does not know how to read x-rays! Did not put enough cement in my prosthesis for my knee! Eight months of hell!

He recommended a bunch of medicine that I didn't need. Was very unprofessional and I felt pressured to have a procedure done that was completely unnecessary.

I highly recommend Dr Bhargava for knee replacement. Had my right knee done in September. Preparing for my left knee is December. After rehab, my right knee is much less troublesome than before. Although rehab is tough, the improvement is very noticeable... it is now my left knee that limits my mobility. I am actually looking forward to getting my left knee done and the expected post-rehab mobility.

Dr. Bhargava did two hip replacements for me 7 weeks apart My hips me give me no pain and do not limit me in any activities! I would highly recommend him. Using his method (going thru the front) hastens the recovery time. I was playing 18 holes of golf 3 months after the last surgery!

Dr. Bhargava is extremely knowledgeable, get bed side manor, he informed me, in great detail, about the total hip procedure. I went into surgery feeling well informed and confident. I highly recommend this Dr. and his staff.

Did not listen to complaints of pain after a partial knee replacement. Laughed when I said it was hurting all the time. Went to another dr who had to do a total replacement.

Horrible ability to interpret x-rays! Blew me off after he did not cement my knee prosthesis in completely. Had to have a completely new knee replacement by another competent physician.

He treats you like an assembly line! Blew me off when I continued to have knee pain after he replaced my knee! Got a second opinion and was diagnosed with loosening of the prosthesis. Dr. Bhargava was shown the very same x-rays the second opinion doctor saw and he missed the diagnosis! Had to have my knee redone! Do not go to him!
