Verified Patient Reviews
The thing that bothered me the most was while I was talking to him about my health issues he got a call on his cell phone and stopped the conversation to answer it in the middle of my appointment. He said it was his son and it wasn't even an emergency call. Talked on the phone for a few minutes too. Then tells his son he is with a patient and will call him back. I was so close to just walking out in the middle of his conversation on his phone call. I will be looking for another Dr.
Dr Bankole and his staff were friendly and professional. He listens to and addresses patient concerns. Very easy to schedule appointments and office utilizes most current testing by Genova. I especially appreciate his approach of treating the cause not just symptoms. I was impressed by his knowledge of the connection between autoimmune thyroiditis and gluten.
I was diagnosed with a pretty significant eye disease in 2010 and have had to see 30 or 40 different Doctors since then. There have been a small handful that have made me feel like I'm not a number in their daily books. Dr. Bankole was at the top of my list. He was personable, Well Educated in my Specific Medical Needs and Clearly Explained his ideas and plan to help get me back on my feet. He was kind and concerned.. If you've been to some of the Doctors here in Florida, you know that it Makes A Huge Difference. The wait was very short at my first visit and I was taken back instantly for my second visit. He was just great all the way around.. So was his PA.. She was the reason I came back for a second visit and had the opportunity to meet Dr. Bankole.. Thanks So Much to them and their Awesome Staff..
Absolutely love Dr Bankole and his staff. They are all so friendly and sweet. I would highly recommend Dr Bankole to any patient's seeking a primary care physician.
Long wait time.
Our new family doctor!
First visit, he really listened and we are on the right path for my health needs!
He's OK if you need to be seen asap, but not as a regular PCP. He was short and seemed disconnected. I want a relationship with my doctor and he doesn't offer that.
My wife and I felt uncomfortable here. He told me my past diagnoses were basically a lie that it's just what he thinks and on my first visit without any testing. Suggested herbal remedies that I've already taken in the past and a diet.
The Doctor really cares about his patients.. I'm really impressed with the dynamics of the entire office.
Excellent office staff, saw the NP really nice well educated. Really like the office.
I love Mr. Bankole. He is very understanding and is very friendly with deaf people and is willing to hire an interpreter for me. I appreciate his business and I can't ask for a better Primary Physican. Retrieval of discharge for recent emergency room visit was very quick and the doctor literally disagree with some prescriptions I was prescribed and offered me a better prescription. I appreciate the doctor's perspectives of my health.
Nice staff, everyone listened to what I was saying, (receptionist, nurse and Doctor.) Dr. Bankole gave me options and the best solution for the time being- also referring me out to see a specialist and to have blood work completed in areas that may be causing my problems. I think Dr. Bankole was very professional and thorough. Overall, I had a very good experience and I would recommend Dr. Bankole.
Dr. Bankole and his staff were welcoming. The doctor was precise and clear on what he was going to do with our case. He is a great provider because he takes his time to listen and then access. I recommend him.
Very pleasant right to the point
I thought it was very nice. He was very interested in determining what was along me. He asked quarks that showed his concern for the reason of my visit.
This is the best doctor I have ever had. With his guidance I have never been healthier.
I waited over 30 minutes to see the doctor with only one other person in the waiting room. I saw no patients leaving when I was finally seen. The office smelled bad, it didn't seem very clean and it was hot. Additionally, the doctor didn't seem to have very good hygiene.
It was an unusually long wait due to more than expected client load but I didn't mind the wait at all.
He was very nice and made sure I knew all the possible diagnosis before WE decided what it was
Very detailed in his explanations and he was thorough. Asked me questions to help him narrow down the issue. He was polite and I am happy to recommend him to friends and family.
The offices were neat, clean and modern. Impressed with the short waiting time and the professional courtesy exhibited by Dr. Bankhole and all his staff.
I am a stickler for excellent client service and Dr. Bankole; his staff exceeded my expectations. My toddler accompanied me to my visit and it was a little difficult for me to manage him during my visit, but everyone was patient and understanding of my circumstance. Dr. Bankole took his time to address all of my concerns, something that I highly appreciate. As a public health professional, I have full confidence in Dr. Bankole's medical expertise and I am comfortable with his bedside manner.
Very thorough, not a long wait, him and his staff are great will recommend him to friends and family.
Very pleasant experience; staff very friendly and professional; observed patients who were not first timers like I was, interacting with staff like, "Old friends"; very clean and spacious; a pleasant experience, for a doctor's visit.
The office staff was outstanding, professional, helpful and extremely polite, Dr. Bankole was proficient and answered all my questions.
This was my second time seeing Dr. Bankole and both times he and his staff were great!
Loved the functional medicine approach to care.
When I was reviewing doctors most of the reviews were favorable towards the doctor but rarely towards the office staff. That was not the case here. Both the doctor and the staff were great! I'm a very healthy person so I didn't have to spend a lot of time with the doctor or ask a lot of questions. I was in and out in 30 minutes. This was my first visit to Dr. Bankole and the nurse that took my BP made me feel very welcomed. I would definitely recommend this doctor.
Great staff. would recommend to family and friends.
Looks like I found my new primary physician
Of all the 30+ years of doctor visits this was the first time EVER I did not have a wait to see the doctor. Also staff was very helpful and Professional
Very helpful in getting to my concerns
As for the time because I had to do paper work that what make it long other it was a enjoy doctor visits
Staff very pleasant and nice , the Doctor set my expectations for the visit and aggressively performed my physical loony for any abnormalities.....
Great Doctor. I would recommend.
It was great
He was amazing. I'm keeping him as my primary care doctor. He understands that I'm deaf and actually hired an interpreter for me. I truly appreciate him.
Very caring takes time with the needs of the patient
He is great! actually listened to me and suggested other options instead of medications:) very good doctor!
He really listen and help you understand whats going on.. Very professional and supportive
Very nice. Seems to know what he is talking about. Very professional. I enjoyed my visit.
Awesome Doctors and staff!!!
Very impressed. Dr. Was not in a hurry, listened to all of my symptoms, and followed up with additional lab work. I would recommend Dr Bankole to anyone, and would return to his office if I needed care again. I am also from out of town, and the Dr was available to see me right away.
The staff and doctor were both very nice. Dr. Bankole took sufficient time to discuss my medical condition. Overall, a very good visit with the exception of waiting almost 45 minutes past my appointment time before being seen.
This is a doctor you can trust.
Went well. Highly professional. Would recommend to my friends and family.
He was very professional and friendly! The only downside was the wait but there were a lot of people there at the same time.
Very caring and is highly dedicated to practice of medicine.
I Prefer to see the doctor not his NP. the wait time was longer than usuall.
I would definitely go again. KListen to everything I had to say :)
He discussed all aspects and was very active in listening to my medical history
He was very professional, caring and empathatic. I felt he showed interest and was thorough in his exam. I wasn't overly impressed with his nurse however, there wasn't another patient waiting yet for her I had to wait longer than 15 minutes.
