Verified Patient Reviews
Doctor is very professional, I have seen him a couple of times. He explains the problem very well. Getting appointment is easy, staff is friendly too
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.
Dr. Bharat is AMAZING! He is so nice and personable. All of the people in the office are very kind as well! I recommend him to anyone who needs to see a gastroenterologist. The office is very clean and welcoming.
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.
Dr. Shanghavi is extremely approachable and diagnosed me almost immediately. Highly recommend!
Very good experience, overall. Took the time to explain everything very clearly and answer questions. Was kind and attentive.
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. I was in and out in 2 hrs. He was more than willing to accommodate my difficult schedule as well. Highly recommend!
Very nice doctor. I especially like that he was able to see me initially then set up some test for the very next day. You usually have to wait weeks. I was very happy will be seeing him again.
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 was interested 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
Dr. Sanghavi ensured that I was able to have tests done very quickly after my first appointment--asking his staff to fit me in on a full day because of his concerns. He's always taken my symptoms very seriously and made me feel comfortable and well taken care of.
Very knowledgeable and through explained possible causes for the condition and next steps.
What an attentive, kind soul. Really caring and factual
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 have ever had the joy of seeing. He explained my diagnosis clearly, and was sure to alleviate any of my worries. Top Doc, hands down.
Despite it being the doctor's office, I had a positive experience. The doctor was extremely warm and patient and actually listened.
Dr. Sanghavi is very sweet. However, I believe the treatment he recommended was completely off base. I will not be returning and I do not recommend him.
Very knowledgeable and attentive
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 a number 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
Terrific Doctor - warm, knowledgeable and prompt. Takes the time to educate you and answers your questions.
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 fast paced 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.
Dr. Sanghavi is one of the best doctors I've been to.
He was very warm, friendly and personable.
He is very kind and knowledgeable l thing he is full of experience and he know what he is doing.. l like being there
I highly recommend Dr. Sanghavi. He has an excellent bedside manner, treated me swiftly and took the time to fully explain the situation to me. Couldn't ask for more.
I will recommend this doctor
I cannot recommend Bharat Sanghavi enough. I've had two procedures as well as multiple follow-ups with him, and it's been a great experience every time. He is kind and knowledgable, and he has always made me feel comfortable during procedures and whenever I needed more information or had to ask questions.
Awesome doctor, and she's cute
Dr. Sanghavi was very thorough and took his time with me.
Dr. Sanghavi is very concerned with my overall wellbeing.
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.
Very professional and detailed analysis. Explained the situation clearly to diagnose the problem. Highly recommended.
Dr. Sanghavi was very courteous and professional. He explained everything thoroughly, answered all of my questions, and didn't make me feel rushed at all. The waiting room is a bit cramped, but I only had to wait for 15 minutes, so it wasn't a big deal.
Courteous,Attentive and Pleassnt
Very competent and helpful. Looking for a solution immediately.
I highly recommend. He's knowledgable, spends the time to get to understand what's going on and does his best to find a solution.
very thorough and kind!
He was very professional and had great bedside manners. He spent time asking me questions that most doctors normally rush through. I didn't feel like he was trying to get me out of there and that is nice considering there were many patients waiting. I am going back for a second appt next week and hopefully I can resolve my health issues. If what he recommended works, then I may have found my go to Doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Bharat Sanghavi
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 want someone 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.
Dr. Sanghavi's bedside manner was professional yet pleasant. He spent considerable time asking you to go through your background and explain exactly what issues you are experiencing, then he went through his preliminary prognosis based on your symptoms, and finally detailed which procedures are necessary to test his hypothesis and find the appropriate treatment. It is obvious that he is very knowledgeable in many aspects. I also liked the fact that he was on his way out to a medical conference, demonstrating that he's connected with developments in the profession. The other members of the office were also nice, especially the nurse that greets you after the procedure (to help you come back to). The office isn't fancy but it gets the job done and thats what matters (to me at least). I would absolutely recommend him.
Very sweet, witty doctor who goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. This is VERY important given his area of expertise...no one wants a colonoscopy from an awkward doctor...
I was seen on time, he provided a lot of explanation and I feel very confident to proceed with the treatments.
Very friendly and explains things well.
Wonderful bedside manner!!! He takes time to explain, draw diagrams or show pictures... whatever it takes to help the patient understand and have all questions answered. Thank you!
He is an excellent doctor, his diagnosis and treatments are precised and accurate. He is the best stomach doctor !! definitely recommend
Wonderfully gentle, patient man.
Very detailed, polite, clean and professional.
As a fellow medical professional I highly recommend Dr. Sanghavi. He diagnosed my condition instantly (which I had originally suspected), PERSONALIZED a treatment based on the fact that I had no insurance that was still effective yet cost efficient and 6 weeks later I am 80% improved. I waited about 30-45 mins for both of my appointments but being a practicing doctor I understand these kinds of things happen especially since all it takes is one or two patients to show up late for their appointments. Staff is also quietly friendly and efficient. On a side note his out of pocket rates are among the best I've seen from a physician in the city and considering his excellent service, his value is a steal!
Dr. Sanghavi was very personable, thorough, and leaves you feeling like you're in good hands.
He is super nice and answers all questions. I would like go back to him if he will accept my insurance.
one of the best doctors i've ever seen. so sweet, so gentle, really put me at ease. highly recommend

I had a great experience with Dr. Sanghavi's office. The staff were friendly and swift. Dr. Sanghavi was knowledge and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend this office to others looking for a gastroenterologist.
Sweetest guy and very thorough!
Dr. Sanghavi's office is very organized and professionally run. If you have an appointment you will be seen on time and the Doctor and his staff will do their best to accomodate you around any scheduling needs or changes that may arise. The Doctor himself is also very technical and knowledgeable and will take the time to explain everything to you and provide his feedback. That being said, I felt that Dr. Sanghavi was very pushy around the amount of tests he wanted me to take. When I refused additional bloodwork which was optional he refused to service me further because it "interfered with his process". This is not the kind of doctor I need. It is important to have a health professional who can consider your opinion in addition to their technical process. I will not see Dr.Sanghavi again because of this aspect of the service he provided.
Doctor Bharat is super nice! He's very experienced and professional. The receptionist is very incompetent though.
He is a very nice person and makes you feel comfortable. :)
