I am very relaxed when discussing my medical issues with Dr. Bhatt, he is easy to communicate with and most informative. However the front office somehow is always under staffed and overbooked with phones ringing off the hook....need some help there.

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 mewhat kind of blood tests he was going to give me or discussed any thing in details.

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.

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 scheduledappointment). It wasn't clear when booking that this was an urgent care clinic, which means many more people in the waiting room & extra delays.

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.

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 planto schedule any future appointments on the days and times Dr. Shah is available.

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'thave time to let us share full information on my health stats. I wouldn't recommend him esp for people who value time.

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.

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.

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.

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 wasscheduled.....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.......

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 seekout add help when all you have is medicaid, it truly was probably the worst doctor's I've ever met.

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 Iwent 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.
