Dr. Rupal Bhatt, MD

Internist, Primary Care Doctor

Professional statement

Dr. Rupal Bhatt, a board certified and recertified Internist, has been practicing in the New Jersey Metro area for the last 14 years. She completed her training at hospitals affiliated with the prestigious Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, with some time spent at the world renowned Sloan Kettering Medical Center. After her intense training, she began her practice in New Jersey with the Veteran’s Administration and quickly rose to the rank of Lead Physician at the outpatient center. Her accolades include the prestigious “Oak Leaf” Award, bestowed by the Veterans Admistration for outstanding excellence in patient care. That was quickly followed by a Congressional Letter of Commendation by Congressman William Pascrell. Recently, Dr. Bhatt was awarded a special commendation for 10 years of service to the United States Government at the Veterans Administration. Mostly importantly, her daily “award” was the smile on her patients faces. Thereafter, she entered private practice with the mission of providing state-of-the-art, compassionate primary care for young families and the geriatric community. Today, her practice includes the spectrum of patients from “soccer moms” and teachers to general contractors and business leaders in the local community. Her commitment to adults and their geriatric parents, makes the practice a true family practice, leading to a healthy community.

The Doctor identified some issues that I have been having quickly and provided solutions. I have had some of these conditions over a number of physicals with other doctors that did not take the time or ask the right questions. I am very pleased with my visit today.

Her whole staff was sweet and caring. She didn’t rush me and helped me out with anything I needed. I have white coat syndrome and her whole staff eased my woes. I haven’t had a primary doctor in about 12+ years(while I was in college) so I was pretty panicked. Dr. Bhatt never shamed me or made me feel stupid which was amazing.

Dr. Bhatt and her staff are the nicest and friendliest I have ever seen. She did a bunch of tests and listened to what I had to say. My husband said I had to see her after he saw her fora sick visit. And he is never seeing a doctor twice. But he will now. We are finally found a family practice for us!

I've previously left a positive review about Dr. Bhatt. However, my last experience was so negative that my family has since left the practice. While my husband was being treated in Dr. Bhatt's office, I was in a car accident afew minutes away. Unsure of what the ambulance cost would be even with insurance (and even when I was stopped when I was hit by another driver), my husband wanted to bring me directly to Dr. Bhatt's office as it was the closest medical establishment and I was in bad shape. The front office told him no, that she was leaving because she was too busy. I then called and was also told no, too bad. This is the second emergency case where Dr. Bhatt's office refused an appointment--and did so incredibly rudely. In the prior instance, I had an awful migraine and asked for an urgent appointment. I was told there was no availability and to go to the ER instead. Ridiculous. I went to the urgent care center and was appropriately treated. However, Dr. Bhatt's office had the audacity to call me two days later to schedule a "follow up"--I guess they didn't want to miss out on collecting some more money. Absolutely disgraceful. Hopefully Dr. Bhatt will read this and fire the office staff--assuming she didn't know what was going on. If she did know, then maybe she'll heed losing patients as advice for future endeavors.

Went in for an appointment as I had a rash on my face for over a week. To start, they didn't have my appointment confirmed even though I had an email from ZocDoc. Once I showed them the confirmation, they saidthey would shuffle things around and that I could see Dr. Shirish Bhatt as Dr. Rupal Bhatt was booked for the day. I figured that was fine and proceeded to wait for over 30 min past my appointment time to meet with him. I went back and he proceeded to look at the rash and ask a few questions. He then drew blood and asked me to come back to discuss the results. I went back for a follow-up a few days later and Dr. Bhatt proceeded to tell me that the rash on my face, which had mostly gone away was the result of food allergies. I was apparently allergic to corn, wheat, pork, gluten, eggs, and milk according to the test results. I was in complete disbelief and asked him if he was sure. He said absolutely and that I should stop eating them immediately. He also said i should go see his friend who is a gastroenterologist. Obviously I was upset because I now had to eliminate a huge range of foods from my diet. I took a few days and then decided to visit my allergist where he proceeded to tell me there was absolutely nothing to worry about as blood allergen testing for foods is at best 50% accurate. Secondly, there was no reaction after I ate those foods. Needless to say, I would never recommend going to someone who is so incompetent and I would stay well away from them.

Very attentive. She genuinely cares about her patients. She is always greeting patients with a smile and a certain warmth you don't get from many Doctors/ Physicians. She has taken the time to research my specific condition and has helped mecome up with a plan. I feel that she is with me every step of the way! She is absolutely amazing!

This was my first visit. The doctor and staff def made a great "first impression". I appreciated getting a reminder voicemail the day before and text message the day of the appointment. The staff was very nice and welcoming to thepractice. The doctor was kind and made me feel like "I had been coming to the practice for years"...instead of "just a new patient". I could go on and on....but the most important thing to say is that I found a great new doctor. Which makes me feel relieved and very happy. What a great first visit. I totally will refer others. Thank you, Dr. Rupal Bhatt and staff.
