I have been seeing Dr. Budget for many years now. I have to have a colonoscopy every two years. He is a very personable Dr. And always explains what ever he is doing so the lay person understands. He is an expert in his field and I wouldn't see anyone else for these procedures. I would recommend him to anyone needing a gastroenterologist.

Dr. Bhagat was great! He took time both before and after my colonoscopy to discuss my particular situation and concerns. I will definitely return to Dr. Bhagat for my future needs.
