Verified Patient Reviews
I liked the doctor, but the system in which his office works gave me more headaches than my medical problem. Paperwork and front des organization is handled poorly.
Dr Bhatia is superb. Extremely knowledgeable / thoughtful, very accessible and great medical mind.

I respect and trust Dr. Bhatia's clinical judgment. So much so that I referred my daughter to him to sort out what turned out to be a dire neurological emergency. I highly recommend Dr. Bhatia.
Dr Bhatia was very helpful. Took time to listen to my issues, and discussed my migraine history and treatment options after a thorough neurological exam. Prescribed medication that has helped manage a condition that had become quite unmanageable
Pleasant staff !
Professional, listens to patient‘s concern, prompt, calm! I especially appreciated the wholistic approach to my symptoms, with the least amount of medication as possible

I saw the doctor right away. He was thoughtful, patient, and really took the time to explain all my options to me. Highly recommend!
I came in for a follow up appointment. The follow up confirmed my earlier impressions: Dr Bhatia is amazing. Very patient, thorough, and kind. I hope I won't have to visit Dr Bhatia soon again (of course, I want to stay healthy) but you won't find a better and kinder doctor in Manhattan!
Dr Bhatia is a knowledgeable, kind, and patient doctor who took the time to listen to my concerns (which is so difficult to find in New York). The front desk staff also is very helpful. Overall, I am glad I found Dr Bhatia, and I can definitely recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Bhatia was patient, calm, and very respectful of my concerns. I felt confident about his feedback, and I left the appointment with a good understanding of next steps.
I got there earlier that my alloted time and was seen right away. The receptionist was very nice and Dr Bhatia was efficient and clear in his line of questioning. I'm going back for a follow up, and look forward to getting the help I need.
Dr. Bhatia helped me a great deal with my headache. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Bhatia was warm, friendly and efficient. Quick appointment all around but not at all rushed. Highly recommend him!
Nicky took the time to listen, wasn't quick to prescribe or conclude anything. The best neurologist I have seen so far.
Great doctor with excellent listening and analytic skills.
Dr. Bhatia was super thorough and asked a lot of questions. I felt very comfortable during my visit and he responded to my concerns very patiently!
I was very pleased with the visit to Dr. Bhatia. He was kind, professional, and very knowledgeable. He did not rush us at all and answered all our questions. I also appreciated how quickly we got an MRI and his opinion on it. I'm sure this isn't the last time we will see Dr. Bhatia. Very highly recommended.
Dr. Bhatia was incredibly professional, and courteous enough to text me the night before to reschedule due to something that came up (and I was able to pick a time the next day that was just as convenient) - I appreciated this immensely since I had an early-morning appointment that was meant to be on my way to work. Anyway, during his visit he helped me with everything that I needed help with, and offered some fantastic insight that I had not considered, as well as some suggestions that aligned with my regular neurologists (and my own wishes) - so that made me feel at ease! He was very easy to talk to, and also reminded me that that to be consistently improving on the nerve conduction study says a lot, in a good way. Thank you, Dr. Bhatia for making what could have been a big headache into a visit that left me feeling more positive than when I came in :)
Pleasant and answered all my questions.
Awesome Dr. Listens to you. No wait time. Very knowledge and kind.
Appointment for continued monitoring of neurological matter where Dr Bhatia continued to provide excellent care consistent with all other appointments.
Dr. Bhatia was amazing. My quality of life has drastically improved thanks to his care. Great office, fast intake, and a genuinely helpful person.
I have seen Dr Bhatia repeatedly for a unique neurological issue. He is thoughtful, caring and thorough. He has guided me through a challenging diagnosis and treatment. Highly recommended.
I recently visited Dr. Bhatia's office for frequent headaches. I was taken back to see the doctor right away upon completing my intake forms. Dr. Bhatia was thorough and patiently answered all of my questions. He had a warm, positive, professional bedside manner and also got right to the point so I didn't waste any time getting back to work. I would definitely recommend Dr. Bhatia to anyone looking for a neurologist in the city.
Dr. Bhatia was very professional with me. He listened patiently and provided further test and a follow up consultation which concluded in final positive result. There was a snag with my prescription medication as it wasn't placed with the pharmacy right after my visit with him however, I was able to reach Dr. Bhatia at his cel phone and took it upon him self to reach the pharmacy and make sure I got my medication right away. He went above and beyond and that made me feel cared for as he showed deep concern for my well being. Thank you Dr. Bhatia!
Very thorough and caring. Highly recommend.
dr.bhatia was extremely thorough,smart&askedall theright questions& several new ones as well. i was very impressed with his approach.
This review is long overdue, but Dr. Bhatia has been such a wonderful and amazing doctor this past month in treating my illness. I have been going thru dizzy spells for the past 2 1/2 years, and this year has been the toughest. I also have had 2 fainting episodes, and doctors of all specialties (ENT, Cardiologist, Dietician, etc.) were unable to discover what was wrong with me. It was a very tough year in terms of trying to find a doctor that would be able to diagnose me accordingly and also effectively. Dr. Bhatia was the doctor who was able to figure it out. I ended up being diagnosed with chronic vestibular migraines, and I have now found natural and non-drowsy medication that is treating this condition. Never did I think migraines would be the reason behind all this, but Dr. Bhatia's knowledge and expertise opened me up to the idea and I ended up having all symptoms! I am noticing progress and a recovery, and I am so grateful for Dr. Bhatia for this reason. If it weren't for him, I would have never received closure for a very tough year. Other than being a knowledgeable doctor, Dr. Bhatia is a great listener and is very personable. He will always get back to you if you have questions and also concerns, and he does whatever it takes to make sure he has done his job in treating his patients. I have not seen a doctor like this in a long time, and I honestly wish more doctors could be like him in providing hope and having passion for treating his patients who need it. Thanks again for all your help, Dr. Bhatia! A+++++, 5 *****
Very thorough, relaxed environment, and Dr. Bhatia was great at explaining what he was doing and why. Definitely recommend.
Dr Bhatia is a kind, compassionate and thorough physician. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Bhatia was extremely professional. Very kind and courteous. He listened to every single one of my problems and took notes on everything. Gave an honest opinion about my assessment and was willing to work with me to find a solution to my problem. I highly recommend Dr. Bhatia.
He didn't seem very informed about my condition and I honestly gained very little from the appointment -- I felt it was rushed (15 min). When you have a serious condition and you go to see a specialist, you hope that they'll give you some kind of new insight, and that they'll really elaborate on your questions. He was sweet, but I didn't feel he was sufficiently prepared or interested in discussing my health in much depth.
Dr. Bhatia is very kind and I felt comfortable. The wait was less then 30 mins. He gave me the attention I needed. I didn't feel rushed and I left the office satisfied.
He was very polite and really listened to me explain what was wrong. I felt very comfortable. I definitely would recommend him.
I am so glad I chose Dr. Nicky, he took the time to listen and very professional explain my situation, i will definitely recommend him for anyone needing a good Neurologist.
After my MRI I never heard back from him

Went to see Dr. Bhatia for a consultation after a slip and fall minor head injury. Very courteous check in process and I was seen with almost no wait time. He was very professional, polite, listened to me carefully and explained everything in a clear manner. It was not a complex case so I spent about 15 minutes with the doctor. I felt assured when i left. Overall a pleasant experience.
Dr. Bhatia was able to see me on a weekend and provided me with the exams I needed right away. He was investigative, intelligent and easy to talk to. He is good at what he does.
I have never written a review before but found dr bhatia's bedside manner and knowledge to be so extensive and reassuring that I think those looking for a neuro should be seeing him.

A TOP PHYSICIAN! I am so happy i made this appointment with Dr Bhatia. He spent almost an hour with me going over my concerns, and planning out a long term treatment strategy. A true gem in his field. His staff is also one of the easiest and friendliest staff to interact with! Overall he is simply THE BEST!
Absolutely horible doctor. Strongly suggest you don't use him when there are 1000's of others doctors out there that do care.
Was very pleased with first visit, hoping follow up visits are similar in exceellence

Dr Bhatia came HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by my primary doctor. After my visit with him, I can can vouch that he is the BEST NEURO i have seen so far. He really LISTENS to you. Not like some of the other doctors who don't really seem to care about what you have to say. HE IS A TOP QUALITY DOCTOR. I would recommend him to everyone for excellent neurological advice.
VERY GOOD!This was my second visit with Dr Bhatia! He is helping me deal with my problems in a systematic and wholesome manner. Every visit with him feels like he truly cares about you and about helping you. HE IS SIMPLY AMAZING!

Dr. Bhatia was very professional listened to my complaints gave me quick examination referring me for further testing. Office space is small, staff was pleasant but should not allow patients eat their lunch while waiting to see doctor. Very unprofessional..
Dr. Bhatia was knowledgeable and professionally and clearly knew his field.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Bhatia. He saw me promptly, took the time to listen to my medical history (which is pretty hefty), and has an excellent bedside manner. I finally found a specialist who is both knowledgeable and kind! I would definitely see him for my future care and recommend him.
I met with Dr. Bhatia and he saw me right away. Heidi his front desk receptionist is excellent. I am having severe headaches, and have never experienced this before. I feel like I have come to the right place so far. This is my first time meeting with Dr. Bhatia. I am very impressed.
I have a very interesting case. Dr. Nicky is helping get to the root of my problem even though it is difficult. He is very thorough and I like him very much. I would highly recommend him. He doesn't rush you or listens to everything you have to say.
I don't really know what to say about Dr. Bhatia. He didn't really say anything that would help me. He is a nice guy and I believe he has an interest in being the best and helping his patients however I think he was a bit confused with my case.
No wait time, very comfortable and professional
Dr. Bhatia is both professional and caring. He patently answered every single questions I had.
Pleasant, knowledgable, and genuine. Just a few word to describe this brilliant doctor!

great - took time to understand my issues and explain his dianosis
Dr. Bhatia is a brilliant, considerate, insightful physician, who takes the time to discuss options, explain treatment and listen to the patient's needs. Truly an excellent practitioner I wholeheartedly recommend.
This was my first consultation with Dr. Bhatia. He spent time with me in his office first asking many questions, listening to my symptoms, family history of medical issues etc...He then gave me his physical exam in his examination room which was very professional. He took me back to his office to discuss what he wanted to do first and make sure I was on board. I am following up with him shortly. So far he has impressed me immensely. His receptionist was very pleasant as well.
Very professional . Asks meaningful questions. Seems to care about his patients and reaching real solutions. Very friendly and helpful receptionist too ! :)
Dr.Bhatia was very nice. I didn't wait at all. He spent enough time to talk. It was really great.
Dr. Bhatia is fantastic. He was professional, the questions he asked me, examination, and the history he took were relevant and he address my needs effectively.
Dr. Bhatia is one of the most respectful, well informative doctors I've ever come across. There's no question gone unanswered. His patience to find a solution to the problem is a virtue found few & far between doctors.
I had been suffering from severe back pain for months and finally decided to see a Neurologist. His credentials were impressive and I was even more impressed that he is not affiliated with some huge medical practice. The office is just him and one other practitioner. He listened and took copious notes while I explained what I was experiencing. He ran a battery of tests and was able to determine the root cause of the problem. He gave me treatment options that made sense. He is the first doctor who really listened and I am grateful.
His office staff was polite and organized. All my info had been sent through - and received - from ZocDoc. My appointment started ON TIME! And the doctor seemed very competent and professional. I will be returning for a follow-up visit.
Dr. Bhatia was awesome , I will highly recommend him!
I was the first patient in the office for the day. The appointment started on time and he was professional. He is even doing additional research to help me find out more about my condition. Excellent visit.
A pleasure to visit Dr. Bhatia and would highly recommend.
I looked for a physician that that had good reviews near my area and I found Dr Bathia He listed careful to my complains and explanation about my issues. no rush, he takes his time and Let we feel very confortable

Terrific visit. Very nice doc, caring and intelligent. Would definitely go back if needed. Highly recommended.
Dr Bhatia was excellent. His beside manner was thoughtful, considerate and thorough. A range of paths forward were suggested and discussed. Although he was running behind schedule, I had a call from his office in advance which meant I had zero waiting time upon arrival. Highly recommended.
Excellent doctor. Very bright and caring physician. Took time to listen, examine and answer all my questions. Will be recommending to all my friends& relatives!
Dr. Bhatia was very professional thruought the entire visit.
Dr. Bhatia seemed like a nice man and he was a good listener. I felt like he really heard me before making a diagnosis rather than just making a snap judgement
It's a mixed bag- I arrived 15 minutes early, as it was my first time and I assumed I'd need to fill about paperwork. The office was closed. Dr. Bhatia arrived on time to unlock and let me in, but I was a little surprised no one else was there. Isn't it standard to have someone else around? He was however polite, focused and efficient.
The first thing that impressed me is that I didn't have to fill out any paperwork. He typed in all of my information when I entered his office. He was patient, listening attentively and very caring. I loved the service I received.I felt like a valued patient/customer.
Very little wait time, very professional, very helpful. Was in out and out with prescription in less than 30 minutes, would definitely recommend.
Very caring, very thorough and very professional doctor. Took careful notes and answered all our questions. Glad that I made an appointment. The only odd thing is that the receptionsist said that they don't accept credit cards, and asked for copay in cash. Thank God I had cash on me, since I rarely carry cash in this day and age.
Very professional and personable. Explained things and that made me feel better. Nice, clean offices. Demonstrated real care.
Dr. Bhatia is highly recommended. I was seen right away by Dr. Bhatia and he was very kind, patient and thorough. He asked me several questions and never once did I feel rushed. If I need to go another neurologist, it will definitely be Dr. Bhatia.
Very kind, concerned doctor who went out of his way to even seek out an academic research article about a rare condition.
Dr. Bhatia is thorough, kind, and insightful. Moreover, I arrived early to my appointment, and he saw me right away. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Bhatia was very thorough in his examinations for my condition. He is very professional but his professionalism does not diminish his relaxed and friendly demeanor.
Dr Bhatia was very thorough and patient with me, though not "cheery/warm". I could tell he was well trained and understood my condition well and how to treat it.
The visit was very pleasant. I would recommend him.
He's okay. Decent bedside manner but not as warm/nice as the other reviews made him out to be. Not much to say about him - did his job but most likely I would not go back to him.
Very helpful and professional. Would unquestionably recommend him to others.
Just had an initial check-up. Dr. Bhatia was very friendly and caring.
Dr Bhatia was a great find on zoc doc. He is unbelievably kind, patient, caring and knowledgeable. Dr Bhatia took the time to explain all the steps and felt very cared for. I was very happy with the kind of treatment I was given. I would highly recommend this doctor!!
Very good listener,extremely knowledgeable and caring. He picked up things on my exam that others had missed and generally provided a level of detail and professionalism rarely encountered. i felt very relieved after the appointment. I'd highly recommend Dr Bhatia without reservation.
Good doctor; shares office space with a chiropractor and advertises for some diet plan in his office, which is odd, but overall good experience.
If you think you have something dont go to this doctor, he will make every sinlge test possible! He will MRI your entire body just "to make sure"!
I was very impressed with Dr. Bhatia's bedside manner. He was extremely thorough in gathering details on my medical history and symptoms. Extremely impressed.
My visit with Dr. Bhatia was quite exceptional. He is a creative thinker and listens extremely well. He took a great deal of time to understand and explore my case. I would highly recommend him.
He's very calm and relaxing (extraordinarily patient).
Very pleasant doctor and very good professional skills.
I thought Dr. Bhatia was very punctual, friendly and professional. Dr. Bhatia didn't rush through my visit,and gathered as much information as possible. I appreciated that I was asked if I had any questions.I have already suggested that a friend see him.
Very professional and caring doctor.
He was superb. He did both a thorough and detailed job, focusing not just on the current complaint but the history as well. While he came to a highly likely diagnosis for me (based on clinical examination), he spent some time thinking of other more creative possibilities as well based on history. Great interaction.
Dr Bhatia was very thorough and although my condition remains a mystery he did rule out some of the serious possibilities.
very good, very professional I really liked this man and I have been searching around for a doctor I like I will probably stay with him.
Very nice and caring personality. Was very thorough with the examination. Office staff was nice also.
Great doctor! He knows what he is doing and truely cares about treating you with the right diagonsis.
I really liked my visit. He is very kind and listens.
Very good doctor who actually cares. Very thorough and spends a good amount of time with you. Highly recommended.
Asked many questions about my history and examined me thoroughly. Ensured that I understood and that I was fine with his explanations
Waiting for over 30mins was a little frustrating, however, I knew that Dr. Bhatia was with another patient. Although he was very calm, I didn't feel completely comfortable speaking with him, but as the appointment progressed he became more personable.
Dr. Bhatia is wonderful, I'm so happy I found him. He is sweet, smart and very understanding and helpful.
Great experience... Dr. Bhatia is very friendly and knowledgeable.
