Love Doctor Bhat.Still need to work on the phones.

The clinic and Dr. Bhat were able to squeeze me into their very busy schedule. I didn't mind waiting. Dr. Bhat was kind, compassionate and such an amazing listener. He thoughtfully diagnosed my two conditions and referred me to a specialist for one of my concerns. Dr. Bhat is a top notch provider. Thanks so much for seeing me.

Dr Bhat goes way above and beyond for me. I never feel rushed though the appointment. We discuss my questions and concerns as a team as opposed to him telling me what to do. He's just an awesome doctor who makes me feel comfortable discussing ANY of my concerns without feeling embarrassed or uncomfortable

This office is VERY GOOD! Sadly, due to staffing shortages all around, it takes a long time to get in contact with a real person when calling in. They respond. PROMPTLY to my contacts with them through the MyHealth app.

Appointments are difficult to get. This was scheduled months ahead, then cancelled by the doctor & I waited an additional 2 months. I have had 2 negative interactions with this office & am not really to recommend them to anyone.

Dr. Bhat,Took time to understand my concerns and helped me build plan to address my concern.

  Oct 17, 2022
The care and time spent with Dr. Baht was and is exceptional. What a wonderful person and physician. Your lab on the 2nd floor of the building seemed to be at its wits end. They were clearly understaffed and barely hanging in there. The lab work was just fine but they just seemed overwhelmed.

  Oct 10, 2022
Excellent visit with Dr. Bhat! He is kind, compassionate and a great listener. Thank you!

Excellent doctor!

I really like Dr Bhat. My biggest issue is the lack of response after an appointment to questions. Also, if a test result is high, there should be an explanation about that test. In addition, I can not schedule an appointment on the Legacy website. It requires me to call and I feel I am restricted to care. On my last appointment we sent up a follow up appointment in 3 months. When I called to make an additional appointment, the response was, "You have already have an appointment in 3 months. Do you want to cancel that one and make this appointment." I feel that my primary doctor's office is not being an advocate for me. I have felt terrible in the last couple of weeks, so I make an appointment with a specialist. Again, I do really like Dr. Bhat and feel he attentive, but the experience afterwards and the lack of access to get questions answered is lacking. I am hopeful that in the future this can improve especially not being able to make appointments from the website.

The receptionists are always friendly, helpful, personable and all around great. Dr Bhat is great. I always feel like he is hearing what I am saying and adds his medical perspective to help. I also appreciate the care Dr Bhat and his MA Sarah provide. When asked, I always recommend Dr Bhat and the Legacy Clinic.

This was a new patient appointment. Dr Bhat was very thorough, professional and listened to my conversation/questions. I appreciate that he proves deeper vs accepting surface level answers to ensure his medical advice gets to the root of the problem

  Jul 28, 2022
The one problem I had: The original consult was interrupted by an incident which required the building be evacuated; it took a inordinately long time to reschedule, even accounting for the current situation.
