It was a smooth exam very friendly nurses and doctor
The wait was too long. Doctor only spend few minutes with me to determine I need bloodwork.
The doctor was not available and I met some other doctor. The wait time was too much!
Wait time was a little longer than I? would have liked, but the staff was nice and helpful.
I had a decent visit with the Dr. I wish the doctor engaged a little bit more.
There is only one person at the front desk and she's getting calls and basically doing everything. They seem to be under staffed. I waited more than an hour. I was there for annual checkup the doctor did not tell me what kind of blood tests he was going to give me or discussed any thing in details.
It took way too long, and it was just a check up. Having made an appointment didnt make a difference from all walk-ins they had.
Dr. Bhatt is a great guy, warm & genuine. Smart, too. Highly recommend him.
Zocdoc suggested this doctor for what I needed so I made an appointment but this doctor didn't specialize in what I wanted done. I waited for over an hour just to be sent away. Pretty frustrating.
Excellent doctor. The wait was a bit too long than I had imagined!
Great, caring doctor. Took the time to help diagnose my injury and offer medicine & referral to get an X-ray, etc. Would recommend him to others. Only complaint is I waited over an hour (even though I arrived before my scheduled appointment). It wasn't clear when booking that this was an urgent care clinic, which means many more people in the waiting room & extra delays.
It was great as my first time. The wait was not at all compared to the previous doctor I had. I had get through some paperwork. I wish got there at least 20 mins earlier. All on all much recommended.
It was okay Nice staff Move fast
He was a nice and sweet Doctor.
First visit went very well.
Im a regular patient,doctor is fine . But not his staff.
He was very professional and actually listened to everything I had to say.
he was pleasant and caring. not difficult to talk to which means a lot to me.. .thanks zocdoc
I was seen by Dr. Nehaben Shah. She was professional and courteous; she listened and gave me the opportunity to express all of my concerns. She also took the time to explain things clearly and made sure I understood. I plan to schedule any future appointments on the days and times Dr. Shah is available.
Excellent. Knowledgeable polite and respectful. Great doc.
Dr. Bhatt provided caring guidance and his staff made me feel comfortable.
Doctor was not even in the office when I arrived, only showing up 30 minutes later. Zocdoc precheck in was not accepted, so I still ended up filling out all the forms. The office was unorganized and unpleasant. I will not return.
There was no benefit of booking an appointment for his clinic. The place was a bit shabby and after more than an hour of waiting, all we got were 5 mins where he did not give us a chance or didn't have time to let us share full information on my health stats. I wouldn't recommend him esp for people who value time.
I was seen by Dr. Shah . She was courteous and answered all of my questions
Great doctor. Very nice and extremely helpful but the office was insanely busy and I wasn't seen until an hour after my appointment. Receptionists complaining about the volume out loud obnoxiously while everyone can here. Crazy people in the office.
I would not wish this practice on my worst enemy. I was seen late. Was told my prescription was 'electronically' sent. Called the doctors office and they confirmed that it was sent. Unprofessional and would not recommend.
Overall, my visit did not leave me with the satisfaction of a complete discussion. I had to ask questions to get the doctor to provide guidance on specific issues.
He is a good doctor
Doctor was good. Wait time was super long !
The wait was unacceptable, with no explanation or apology. When I reach 15 mins before my appointment and wait 1.5 hours, at least I expect an explanation, or a courteous smile at the very least instead of dour looks like its my fault I came in.
He made me feel comfortable and answered and my questions. He put me at ease and his staff are down to earth & friendly
He was very pleasant and so was the nurse assisting him. Very professional and prompt. For future he will be my Family's Primary care Physician.
For it being my first time I loved in in and out
Was done in under 5 mins and felt very rushed. Quickly prescribed antibiotics and later admitted I probably didn't need them.
PERFECT Nothing more to add ????
Doctor Bhatt is always awesome. I just dislike knowing every time I go that there will be a wait of at least 20 minutes before I get to see him.
Does not understands the needs of his patients..does not do refferel or pre authorization.
Got double charged as office visit for picking up my annual exam results.
Been seeing him for 5 years. I have had nothing to complain about. His staff in Newport can be a bit of hit or miss but they have improved over the years. Other than that the wait time is never over 30mins even in the worst possible case.
A professional and trusted doctor, someone I trust with my health and the health of my family.
I logged and confirm a visit the last of the day but when i got there the door was locked and i was told the nurse practitioner was working on her last patient, this was at 2:30 when my appt was scheduled.....I was told she had to leave at exactly 3:00 so i couldnt be seen after driving thru 40 mins worth of traffic....They had no record of my appt but yet i received a confirmation from zoc doc at 1:00pm...I felt i was rushed thru and then given outdated sample medication (7months)....This is the first bad experience i had since going to this doctor for a few years now, maybe they will learn from this mistake.......
Great doctor great staff they made me feel really comfortable
The wait was not long. He was very attentive and concerned about my illness. He described why I'm feeling certain symptoms ang gave me a prescription. Overall it was a good experience!
Completley close minded doctor/ won't even write you a referall or even see you for add or anxiety. He's neither kind nor understanding. Completely avoid him at any and all costs. His secretary is rude, and its very difficult to seek out add help when all you have is medicaid, it truly was probably the worst doctor's I've ever met.
is A very attentive doctor.
Dr. Bhatt is a professional, this was not my first visit, and Dr. Bhatt listens to me, and makes his recommendations. Excellent doctor, highly recommended!!
I sprained my ankle. So I went to see the doctor. The doctor was good but not the support staff. I was limping in the doctors office with no help being offered. I made the appointment on zocdoc but when I went there, they did not honor the time saying that it's only walk in on weekends. I ended up waiting for more than an hour.
Pretty good Doctor.
The receptionist was very pleasant. Dr. Bhatt and his PA were very thorough and attentive. I would visit this practice again.
Everything went just well from the moment you walk in and out. Very professional Doctors and employees. Dr Bhatt listened to everything I had to say and he definitely knows what he's talking about. Overall great experience Highly Recommend! Thanks!!
Dr. Bhatt was very courteous and patient in listening to my questions. This is the first time I am seeing him, and have everything good to say. Only factor being I hardly spent not more than 5 mins with him. Though it is always good and sign of good health if a doctor spends less time looking at one's case, but have to be vary of false negatives :) going back for a follow up after my blood work on Wednesday and will get back with an update.
I was able to get an appointment with Dr. Bhatt same day - which was great. The office is large, bright and clean! The staff is pretty friendly. My appointment was for 11 and I was in the room by 11:20. My appointment was very quick - I was in and out in about 5 minutes. I was OK with this because it was just a sinus infection, but if I were there for any other reason, I might have expected it to be a bit longer. Dr. Bhatt was friendly, professional and concise. I would see him again in a pinch if need be.
Very professional , nice looking place who can check multiple health problems which I like , different types of doctors and specialist .
Great doctor! He is very kind and shows a lot of professiobalism.
Quick, yet efficient and very helpful. Very nice bedside manner. Would definitely return.
The purpose of my visit was to discuss a UTI. Firstly, he burst into the room without knocking first, or even introducing himself. I had never been to this office before, and this is what he does. Secondly, he spoke in a judgmental, condescending manner. His assistant (a young Indian woman) was much kinder, and understanding, and listened. I understand that I am a young woman (aged 19), but I do not need my doctor of all people to pass judgement on how I live my life. They tried to encourage me to take a blood test and draw my blood there. It was my first visit there.
he is a very good doctor, Excellent,exceptional.above and beyond.
I have found the doctor for me. Dr. Bhatt was very knowledgable, very courteous, listened to everything I had to say and he knew what I was talking about. The staff was very courteous as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Bhatt to all my family and friends.
I am very pleased with my visit with Dr. Bhatt. I like the fact that Dr. Bhatt listens to my concerns and addresses them appropriately, Definitely a doctor that I would continue seeing.
The diagnosis and treatment was super quick and efficient. But there was a 1 hr wait for having 2/3 patients in front of me. Dr. Pranay did few tests and was able to narrow down to the problem fast. He explained all my questions and didn't even recommend any tests/medicines other than what I already had. So I definitely had a good experience. That being said, I felt like I was rushed because he seemed to be in a hurry. If he would have took some more time explaining things patiently to make sure I am satisfied, it would have been perfect. But I would prefer to have a quick, efficient & knowledgable doctor than otherwise so I think it was a good experience overall.
I had a great experience at Dr. Bhatt's office. The office is clean, the staff is friendly, wait time was minimal, and Dr. Bhatt is both incredibly friendly and knowledgeable.
Very professional people as a matter of fact I was looking for a primary doctor. Now after this visit I think I will make him my primary doctor.
Good visit. Very complete.
well the details I have entered for online registration on zocdoc were not available to them due to some issue. everything else was smooth
I went in for a lunch time appointment and had no wait at all. Dr. Bhatt seemed to be both very friendly and knowledgeable and it was easy to see that he cares about his patients.
The wait time is inexcusable, especially considering my appt was at 10 and the office only opens at 9. The office clearly shovels people in and out and overbooked to make money, no respect for patients.
Dr Bratt is very knowledgeable , he is convenient also, specially for the prescriptions the way he does them online is great! You just go an pick them up! Many doctors should be so modern as doctor Bhatt is so easy to see him..... Love the process.
My visit was fine. I wasn't really impressed but it was ok.
I was very ill with the flu and a sinus infection. I could barely walk and had to make the appointment last minute. I stood there watching the staff and doctor walk around for quite some time before helping me. He was fine overall but I felt a little more worried about getting me in and out than me feeling better.
Very patient and explained the problem pretty well and discussed medicine and effect very thoroughly.
Nice doctor who likes natural remedies too
First time patient (and new to the area) I felt very comfortable with Dr. Bhatt and has opted to make him my GP while living here. All of the staff are exceptional individuals.
Newly relocated to this area...I have been in search of a GP that I can "trust" with my health and well-being. I did see a Dr beginning of Sept after returning back from out of the country, getting a virus and a sinus infection. I was TOTALLY NOT pleased with that Dr I saw off Broad St. She was quite rude and highly in a rush. When I had this next situation take place, I was skeptical about seeing another Dr (here in New Jersey) for I like to build long term relationships with GPs. I took a chance with Dr. Bhatt and must say, I WILL return again. I know he and his team are busy and see many people, but for that moment, I felt my situation was being well thought about, considering, etc. From the front desk to the Drs, VERY VERY PLEASED and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thank you to Dr. Bhatt, his student physician and staff for making my first visit very pleasurable.
He's the best :) great Dr.
would not recommend
He was a great doctor helped me right away, highly recommend. He really makes u feel comfortable and cares for you.
I went for an annual and had to tell the doctor what kind of test had to be done. he was about to send me on my way without any blood wk or ekg. I have private insurance not medicaid and i expected to be treated more cordially
Ran a little late bc of traffic but overall the visit was great.
Doctor is very good. I am feeling awesome.
Dr BHATT is great doc I ever seen .
