Dr Bhat is, by a wide margin, the best provider I've had. He is that rare combination of highly knowledgeable and highly compassionate. I especially appreciate that he is LGBTQIA+ inclusive, culturally competent, and provides trauma-informed care.

Dr. Bhat and staff have always been great. He's knowledgeable, addresses concerns and listens. Getting into his schedule is tough, sometimes feels rushed and takes awhile from check in time until you actually get to see him. Services provided are great but perhaps increase patient face to face conversations and don't overload one's schedule for more timely and conversational appointments.

I like Dr. Bhat as a provider. He is always helpful, asks appropriate questions, provides me with information regarding my questions, and either takes care of my issues or guides me to the appropriate person who can. I would not change anything so far about my experiences with him. Some of the questions on this survey need to be revised to align themselves with reality. I use the check-in feature at the kiosk when I visit, so I no longer interact with the receptionists or clerks, but the survey question forces me to answer in such a way that it assumes that I did indeed interact with them. It should be revised to have a N/A feature. (I answered the questions based on past experiences before I started using the kiosk.)

Dr. Bhat is a wonderful doctor. He listens, responds with empathy and is thorough. He always aims to find resolutions so I can go back to a normal, healthy life; he never just gives a "Band Aid" to end the visit.

Doctor , SUMEETH BHAT is a very profesional, kind, respectful and understanding person. He doesn't stop until he's sure I'm getting all the attention I need. My health was bad when I first met him real bad and it has improved so much within the last months. He has sent me to where he thinks I need to go in order to get better and all of his recomendations have worked out great for me. I'm very thankful for doctors like him and will totally recommend him to any friend or family member. He's a great doctor.

So glad you asked for comments. First off Dr. Bhat is FABULOUS! [details deleted to protect privacy] I transferred to the Legacy on Cornell and became Dr. Bhat patient. OMG WHAT A DIFFERENCE! This guy is GREAT! I have not had a doctor this good since 1996. Night and day difference, I am so glad to FINALLY get a doctor who actually cares about all my health concerns and health issues. Legacy needs to keep this doctor. Really whatever you are paying Dr. Bhat is not enough. Dr. Bhat takes the time and energy to listen and actually follow up on all the little issues. He is very - very good doctor. THANK YOU!

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.

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.

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.
