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

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!

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 appreciatedthis 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 :)

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, professionalbedside 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 pharmacyright 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!
