What do clients have to say about you?

Dr. Bhat has always been very clear about his ideas and opinions, while always letting me make the final decision regarding my care

Dr. Bhat is compassionate, understanding, and takes time to figure out the cause of the pain, not just treat the symptoms. His staff is great, although it can take a while for them to return calls sometimes given how busy they are.
