I saw Dr Bhagia the first time 14 months ago. I was diabetic, on 2 types of insulin plus metformin, 250 lbs with usual complications and complaints. I was not in a good spot. Long story short: the Doctor gave me great advice and I did exactly as she suggested. I saw her for fifth or sixth time this week. I am at 185 and holding (for four months) with no diabeties and no diabetic meds for over 6 months. A1c @ 4.8. She knows her stuff, and tells it straight. She is "all over it".

i highly recommend Dr. Bhagia, she listened patiently and adressed all of my issues with ease. Her knowledge on treatment was as assuring as her "bedside " manner. I appreciate the time saving in-house lab for blood work. Both her nurse and the front desk was polite and helpful.

I’ve seen 3 endocrinologist and none of them told me what my issue is and in 10minutes Dr.Bhagia addressed all my concerns. This was the best experienceI’ve had in the last year . Great doctor and a true professional that is passionate about her work.

I saw Dr. Bhagia for the first time yesterday. I was taken back right at the time of my scheduled appointment. She explained everything to my daughter and myself so that we knew exactly what the problem was and how it was to be resolved. I really appreciated all the time that she spent with us. Very impressed with her knowledge, experience and the care that she showed. Staff also very pleasant and helpful.

Very good appointment. My A1C was reported as improved. Discussed going to a pump for my insulin injections. Very good overall.

Staff doesn't mirror Dr. Bhagia's personality. Kim & Jonna are not courteous. Test results have regularly taken over 3 weeks . "She's running behind." "I'm running behind." from her staff. When I ask for specifics they're vague and reluctant to provide answers. No smiles or casual conversation. I was asked to fill out the same documents despite informing them I had already done so. Later Jonna explained she may have not uploaded them but failed to apologize to me.

She is very rigid and I feel she treats people like computers as opposed to humans. If you don't do things exactly how she wants, then she basically states she can't treat you.

She's great. She keeps my TSH low and understands that how I feel is important in addition to what the "normal range" is for hypo. She explains my lab reports fully and makes recommendations on how we could proceed. She has been extremely friendly and personable. She went out of her way to look out for more than my thyroid functioning when I had an unrelated medical problem and is willing to work with me on how to improve my health and wellness beyond hypothyroidism. I highly recommend her!
