My favorite doctor I’ve seen before. He was so knowledgeable and helpful, and knew exactly what was wrong with me. Did an endoscopy a few days later, and boom! He was right. I’m feeling so much better already.

First time visiting the Dr. I filled out forms online beforehand and the receptionist had them all in place and ready when I showed up. Check in was a breeze and the Dr began our appointment within minutes of me walkingin. The first time I ever had an apt start BEFORE my actual time. And the Dr is deeply knowledgeable and spent a lot of time with me. Wish I'd have found him sooner in my life.

Dr Bharat is always very professional and personable during every appointment. He caught my appendicitis right in the beginning and I was able to have emergency surgery before it got dangerous thanks to Dr Bharat’s care. I highly recommend him.

I was thrilled to get an appointment with any specialist during my 12 hours in NYC. However, Bharat turned out to be an especially good find! I loved how he started the appointment in his office before stepping into an examroom. And his staff was awesome about determining the most cost-efficient way to move forward with my treatment. While I was looking for a one-time appointment after an incident, it looks like I've stumbled across a winner!

I absolutely loved Dr. Bharat. He could diagnosis my systems on description alone (and than went on to do a thorough exam to pin point the exact issue. He is very knowledge, caring and funny! He helped me take care of my stomach ulcer and I am forever grateful.

Horrible front desk staff, didn't even make it in to see the dcottor due to the inept front desk staff. What a waste of time. There's plenty of other wonderful specialists in the city to have to put up with this nonsense. Steer clear.

I thought he was great. He really seemed to want to learn about me and was very thorough when asking questions about the issues I was having. He also was quick to come up with the diagnosis he thought was correct,but still tested for other potential issues for safety instead of brushing it off.

I'm quite particular about doctors since most I've met in the city seem to have no time or interest to actually speak with me about why I'm here. Dr. Sanghavi was patient, attentive, personable, informative and really made sure I felt comfortable when we had difficult discussions. Highly recommend.

Saw Dr. Sanghavi after feeling painfully bloated for a nearly 4 days and getting worried over not eating yet not losing any weight. He recognized it was an acute problem and addressed it with a procedure right in his office. Iwas in and out in 2 hrs. He was more than willing to accommodate my difficult schedule as well. Highly recommend!

The visit consisted in me telling the doctor my symptoms and he saying that he can't know anything without "seeing inside me" and prescribing me medications with tons of side effects that made me sick. He didn't touch me nor wasinterested in seeing me physically and address the areas of pain So if what you are looking for is a chat and a pill go to him otherwise I would suggest to find someone else more interested in the patient

I went to this doctor for an endoscopy. He did not explain to me beforehand that I would be going under general anesthesia; I learned this when they started sticking tubes in me. No one advised me that I might wantsomeone to meet me afterward (as other doctors offices require). And the follow-up discussion from the endoscopy happened while I was still groggy from the anesthesia, so I barely remembered it.

Having to see a gastro doc is always a sensitive thing, especially if you've never gone through the procedure of receiving an endoscopy or a colonoscopy before. Luckily, Dr. Sanghavi is one of the most sincere and comforting doctors I haveever had the joy of seeing. He explained my diagnosis clearly, and was sure to alleviate any of my worries. Top Doc, hands down.
