Doc is patient. Listens. Takes copious notes. Not rushed. Super clean and organized office. Nisha (front office) is especially nice. I was out of pocket and they'll work with you if you ask. I needed an MRI and he sent meto a place where pricing was also kind to people out of pocket. Aside: I'm noticing more and more doctors are willing to give you a lower price if you tell them you're out of pocket.) It works better for them since they get paid right away and don't have to deal with insurance. In (some) cases, it may be worth doing if you want to go see a doctor who may not be in-network. Just a tip. Anyway, the doc is great. Highly recommended.

I thought he was sincere and very knowledgeable and humble which is a mix not often seen. The women at front desk were efficient, friendly and had good senses of humor. I usually give almost every doctor I go to abad review because honestly most offer terrible service and advise. I was very pleased with this experience.

I am partial to the style of office visit that Dr. Bhatia employs. You go into his office first and sit down and have a conversation. This allowed me to get my story across and for him to think about whatwill take place in the exam room. Very warm bedside manner and gives a good feeling of being relax and in control. I have no complaints from my visit.

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 stayhealthy) but you won't find a better and kinder doctor in Manhattan!
