Peggy And Kenny Christy – Jun 25, 2021
Dr Bhatia is the best endocrinologist I've ever had. His care is consistent and thorough. Dr Bhatia is about efficiency and he is very focused. Unlike some doctors, he is never ho-hum or arrogant. I always know how I will be treated when I come into his office. He is a consistent professional, always courteous, a strong observer, and he intently monitors and guards my endocrine health. This is the best kind of medical visit for me. Dr. Bhatia's office persons are all medical professionals and they care about others. These persons are rare jewels. Yes, I am fortunate and do recommend Dr. Bhatia, an exceptional endocrinologist. Thank you Dr. Bhatia. PS Thank you also Drs. Sheffer and Frizzell, really good Drs. who have given me the best cardio care available anywhere.

He treated me like I was a hypochondriac, dismissing my symptoms and never looked up from his computer. He treats your labs only - not your symptoms. He acts annoyed if you ask him questions. His office staff is friendly but do not call you back in a reasonable amount of time even when your labs are off and you need medications changed, or else he takes over a week to look at your labs. Loses labs, also. If I could give him less than one star I would. I should’ve walked out but I was nice and said nothing. I will NOT be returning.

If I could leave no stars, I would. Worst bedside manner I've ever seen in a doctor EVER. I was referred to him twice, should have learned my lesson the first time, for adrenal gland failure or Addisons Disease. He walked in the room, did not introduce himself, went straight to his chair and his computer screen. Was incredibly rude. Did not even examine me at all. Said what exactly do you want me to do? I am a kidney doctor. My husband said Run tests! He said what kind of tests would I run?! Told me to go back to my family doctor. I said he just sent me to you! Refused to help me. He is definitely not a specialist, and definitely not worth time taken to go there. Will never return

Go somewhere else. He is rude and does not let you voice your concerns at all. I switched to a different endocrinologist for my thyroid issues and feel like a different person. I would never refer anyone to Dr Bhatia.

I think Dr. Bhatia is a great doctor because he has my medical problem under control with medication instead of surgery. I like the way he listens to me and he never seems rushed. I never have to wait very long. He is very kind. I feel very lucky to have him for my doctor.

Carole in Evansville, IN – Sep 24, 2018
Wouldn't NOT recommend. Take my mother here for diabetis and nursing home staff was directed to call him for instruction when her sugar was over 400. Took them 3 calls to finally get a response on a Saturday to a 466 blood sugar and he told them to call her GP not him on the weekends. Poor patent care!! Nursing home was even upset.

Dr. BHatia is always patient with me. He works very hard to help me keep my numbers where they need to be even when I don't cooperate. He is always polite shaking my hand both when he comes in and when he leaves the room. Very good about explaining different medications and why they are needed.

I am not impressed with Dr. Bhatia's bedside manner or skills as an endocrinologist. He is rude and acts as if his time is more important than yours. He doesn't offer much in regards to helpful information and reprimands you for trying or suggesting things. I wish there was another endocrinologist in the area that my insurance would cover..
