Springville, CA |
Waited over an hour to be seen. Asked to fill out a medical history form, but he clearly didn't read it, or the notes his nurse took. Asked the same questions as she did, and missed the fact that I am a cancer survivor. Answered a personal phone call in the room and didn't leave. Referred to Cipro as a placebo and a poor antibiotic. He didn't ask why I took Cipro over Macrobid, or the other common antibiotics for UTI's. I'm allergic to penicillin and Macrobid makes me sick. I won't be back!

Dr.bhardwaj went above an beyond. I was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2016 I had to undergo chemotherapy and surgery. My case was a difficult one. Other doctors turned me away, but Dr.Bhardwaj took on the task an performed the surgery that I needed. I highly recommend him and his wonderful staff for your medical needs.

Dr. Bhardwaj helped assure me everything will be fine throughout my road to recovery. Before seeing him I had a terrible experience from local walk in clinics who told me I was fine and brushed off the seriousness of my illness. We need more Dr's like Dr. Bhardwaj in the central valley.

One of the most scariest times in our lives. Dr. Bhardwaj explained he procedure and possible outcomes. I believe we were blessed that he was available. He did an amazing job and we will always be grateful. To have a doctor here in town such as Dr. Boardwalk is amazing.
