Overall very good experience with no negative points. This was a new patient checkup, and medical records were not available as all previous medical care had been outside of USA

I have never been happier with my Medical care. I feel Dr Bhat treats me like the most important person in the world when I'm in for my visits. He is definitely listening, and listening for anything he might have concern about. He is always thorough with any recommended specialists or further help needed.

This comment is directed more to Legacy than to this specific clinic - I am disappointed that Legacy did not follow the protocols of another provider in this area which was much more responsive to the needs of pandemic issues.

I switched to Legacy and Dr. Bhat a few years ago. Since that time he helped me get a hip replacement and recover from an accident and provided excellent healthcare. My wife has now switched to Legacy Cornell.

Dr. Bhat always not only listens, but makes sure to probe and encourage me to tell him anything that might be relevant to my health. He also makes me feel very comfortable at every visit and makes sure I don't leave with any questions or doubts. His nurse, Sara, is wonderful, too.

I feel like I am getting the best of care. Dr. Bhat is professional and kind and thorough. If there is anything that would be of concern it is that it can be hard to get into see my doctor when the need is urgent. However he is always attentive to my messages and the office tries hard to get me in. I know that COVID has complicated everything.

The receptionist who took my call was very polite and helpful with my prescription question. The medical assistants are always personable and make the experience as pleasant as possible. I cannot say enough great things about Dr Bhat. He answers my questions via my health in a timely manner. He is so personable and really knows me and even my family. He spends his time going through each of my medical problems and concerns. I can't imagine seeing any other PCP!

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.
