I absolutely adore Dr. Bhat and the staff at the clinic. My only complaints are that lately it seems extremely difficult to get an appointment with him in a timely manner, and when I DO get an appointment, I tend to wait in the exam room for 20-30 minutes past my appointment time before I actually see the doctor.

I was diagnosed with shingles. I have been in a lot of pain for over a week before I made an appt. the dr prescribed Celebrex for pain management but the pharmacy did not receive the order. I've called the Dr office back twice and 24 hours later I am still waiting for pain relief. my husband and I were debating on moving to a different healthcare plan during his open enrollment (one that was less expensive) and this experience has made the decision for us. we won't be staying with Legacy.

Dr. Bhat is wonderful! Very easy to talk to without feeling embarrassed. I was comfortable with Dr. Bhat from the very beginning, and appreciated his time and attention in helping me! Sandra at the front desk was wonderful too. I called on a [day removed] morning to make an appointment, and she was able to work me that afternoon so I wouldn't have to go through the weekend with the problem I was having. Thank you!!!
