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 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.

Dr Sanghavi was very kind and welcoming. He wasn't rushed at all and really took the time to understand my background, medical history, family history, etc (i haven't had a doctor that makes me feel like an individual rather than anumber in years). I have a somewhat "rare" bleeding disorder that most doctors scratch their heads at when I mention, but he knew exactly what it was and what it means for me as a patient. I have seen 3 doctors for the my issue and none of them gave me the thorough diagnosis and explanation that Dr Sanghavi gave me. Absolutely reccommen

Dr. Sanghavi is really great and in some respects exodes an old school doc mentality (think before docs saw you as a number instead of person). Unfortunately, in the hustle and bustle of NYC , doctors tend to be as fastpaced as everyone else in this city (and frankly have the bedside manner to go with it). Not Dr. Sanghavi. He takes the time to get to know you (including non medical related questions such as where you grew up etc) and also does not make you feel rushed. Even more importantly, he takes the time to explain everything to you (from the tests he plans to run to the diagnosis). He's also incredibly knowledeable and up to date on the latest medical research. I highly recommend. One negative, the wait time is terrible and you could be in the room anywhere from 30 min to 2 hours.

I've been seeing Dr. Sanghavi for more than a year, and he's one of the most pleasant and affable doctors I've met. The clinic is run like a tight-knit family, and you get pre-appointment reminders and post-procedure check-ins you make sure you're doing alright.
