I had never seen Dr. Bhat before. I recently switched insurances and was in need of a new Docter. Dr. Bhat met and exceeded all of my expectations and immediately felt like he was the best doctor I've seen. He wanted to know everything about me. He answered all of my questions and spent plenty of time with me.

Dr Bhat always takes the time to make sure all my questions are answered and always explains his recommendations and treatments so it is easy to understand. I never feel like he is rushed preoccupied.

Eye exam needs improvement: perhaps a bold color for the pointing stick/arrow; it was hard for my child to see what the pen was pointing on the vision test.

While the Doctor might run late he is well worth the wait. He always spends the time listening and asking questions to get to the solution to the problem. Dr. Bhat is very caring and compassionate and truly cares for his patients

Though I think we covered everything ok (nothing is seriously wrong with me) I felt rushed. I think of him as my gateway doctor to other doctors/specialists I might need. I suppose if I was really sick with something, he'd take care of me. I have gone in before with questionable bumps or lumps and he paid attention to whatever it was. Again, fortunately, nothing serious.

When I asked about my pain and a procedure I had done thru the VA. cause he had done a whole lot in the past. Seems like he seems to pass it off to the other doctors. He just seems different. Not the same. And have not received my blood work to this date. Even called in and still nothing

We made an appt. because my [name and age deleted], had a rash which we had known to be poison oak, because of our past experience with it. While we may wait a little longer to see Dr. Bhat, he is a physician well worth the wait. He listens and is thorough with his exam. He understands our family dynamics and never hesitates to help. I really feel as a mom, he is the best physician we have ever met. We feel lucky to have him in our circle of care. We have 3 children and life balance can be strained so to have someone like him in our camp is a huge benefit. I hope he knows that!

Everything is really good when it comes to a visit, but the waiting time is most of the time, very long. More than 15 mins. inside & the waiting in the waiting area.

dr Bhat is a great doctor, he takes his time to listen to your issues and really cares about his patients.I wish the lab was open a tad bit later. if you have a late appt with your Dr, like 430, the lab closes right as your appt ends and you have to make a trip back to the clinic to get labs done.

I love Dr Bhat! My children see him and I even recommended him to my good friend (who loves him too). The front desk staff is always nice and greet you warmly. The nursing staff is wonderful, and friendly, Sara is always nice and attentive. Dr Bhat is no doubt the best doctor I have had, he talks directly at you, a great listener and always concerned with your care. Legacy is fortunate to have a great provider on staff such as Dr Bhat

Some of the questions regarding interaction with my provider were difficult to answer because it was my initial visit with him. I could not answer the question, "Were you seeing your provider for a problem that needed help right away?" very well because the issue was more complicated than that. I had the flu initially, so attempted to set up an appointment with him, but it was the first visit/establishing care, so it took several weeks for for a date to open up, so I went to an urgent care clinic instead. Also, since this was our first visit, the labs he ordered for me that day have since resulted, and I have reviewed them, but we have not discussed them, which I assume will not happen until schedule a follow-up appointment with him. I did review them myself in my MyHealth account (I'm an ICU nurse, so am aware of lab values, normal ranges, and what those results mean). My initial impression of Dr. Bhat is a good one. I definitely connected to him and would feel comfortable with having him as my provider. He is intelligent and personable and friendly and helpful and a good listener. I have no issues of concern with him so far. The most annoying thing was being made to wear a mask by the receptionist when I first arrived. My appointment that day was a full three weeks after the time I had attempted to schedule an appointment to be treated for the flu, which I had sought and gotten treatment for at a nearby Legacy urgent care clinic. I had already taken Tamiflu and recovered from the illness. To have to wear the droplet mask that day was unnecessary and a nuisance. I understand her rationale, but it was still annoying. Luckily, the medical assistant was more in tune the timing of the events and had me remove the mask. Overall, it was a good first encounter with this new provider and his office staff.

I have changed drs because mine left and after 1 visit with a dr in her office, I knew it wasn't going to be a good fit. I had seen dr Bhat once before and I think this is going to be a good fit. He listens and takes my health questions seriously.

The Legacy team has been a nice change from my last provider. They were good but the clinic was at a hospital so this is a more comfortable, relaxed setting which makes appointments easier I feel.

Dr. Bhat is an amazing PCP. He not only demonstrates the mastery Epic's best practice workflows but he has the unique ability to appear truly engaged and interested in me, the patient. I have extremely high expectations of my PCP, he exceeds them each and every time.

This is the best clinic, best staff, and best provider I have ever been to. From the moment you walk in the door you feel as if they have your best interest in mind. Dr. Bhat and his assistant are both amazing. They make you feel as if they would take as much time as you need to answer questions or concerns. I do not want to go to any other clinic!!!

I find the wait times to be getting a lot longer. I had an appointment at 2:20. Didn't get called in till 3:00 (40 Minute wait, then I waited longer in the exam room) They need to be better about that. I previously had an appointment with a nurse assistant just to get a simple shot, and I was waiting around with my tired fussy toddler for 30-40 minutes before I finally just had to leave, it was very frustrating. I never did see the nurse assistant that day. The appointment would've taken 5 minutes tops.

Dr. Bhat is probably one of the best pediatricians/health care providers we have been too. This has been shown in his willingness to listen respectfully and offer useful advice. He also is willing to look up information, get back to us via e-mail and spend time with us at each appointment. He is our family physician for my husband & 3 children. He is a very considerate person and easy to talk to. He offers referrals whenever we need to see a specialist. He is very detailed. We very much appreciate him!

As a father, I was extremely impressed with Dr. Bhat. He was kind, considerate, professional, and did a great job of relating to my son. He also provided us with info that we asked for and let me know that he sees adults as well. Our family just moved near the Cornell Clinic and even though it is one visit, Dr. Bhat was significantly better than our previous PCP. I am very happy that he is my son's doctor and I will follow up with the office to have our other son and me have Dr. Bhat as our PCP.

Provider was very listening and explained things thoroughly. However, I was recommended to take a few tests but had no info whether it would be covered by insurance or not . I was charged by my insurance and so will take care next time to only do covered tests.

I just want to be heard. when I do bring in concerns. Exspecial about my meds. And/or changing 2 of my meds. And when they want to do blood work I ask about adding a test it's not done or I am told I don't need it. With no reason. Or explaintion. I want to feel better. I do try for the most follow his instruction. But sometimes I wonder why I should if he's not going to really listen. Or basically blows me off.

I thought from beginning to end, from reception, nurse, doctor to the lab personnel, to the follow up appointment call I was treated absolutely great and seemed to be actually listened to, not just heard! Reception greeted me with absolute warmth and we talked about preparing and seeing the last eclipse and being from the same era and area. Sarah was the best, her wit and sense of humor and understanding of my issue were top notch, I felt like we had been friends for a long time! Dr. What is an amazing doctor! He absolutely listened to my issues with focus on my past, present and needed maintenance as I get older. His input and making sure I understood all he was telling me was much needed. The gentalman in the lab was awesome too, he listened to my fear of needles and made the experience actually fun (still hate needles but won't hesitate the next time I have give blood because of this experience!). Overall seeing the doctor is never something you want to Do, but if my experience is like this (and it has been every time I've been there) I won't dread it at all!thank you!

I knew I should see a foot or ankle specialist but was forced to visit a GP to tell me I should see a specialist. When I did get an appointment with the specialist there was no mention of where that appointment would be. I presumed it would be at the same office where I saw the GP. It was not until the call 48 hours prior to the specialist appointment that the appointment was way across town so I cancelled that appointment. I still have not seen a specialist. NOT PLEASED

The result from being seen and diagnosed so quickly I was taken and admitted to a hospital later that same day. Due to the quick actions of Dr. Bhat, he very well may have saved my life. I am extremely grateful to him and his wonderful staff.
