This was my first time seeing Dr. Bhatia. He was very friendly, and energy. I like him! Dr. Bhatia drew a diagram explaining my heart issue and explained a course of action. I admit I was a bit overwhelmed and nervous but I truly felt he had my best interest and care for me and look forward to his helping me feel better. My husband was also present and took lots of notes and Dr. Bhatia was very good about explaining things to us. Thank You
