    If I could have this doctor as my PCP, I swear I'd do it. He was AMAZING. We were on the same page from the moment he stepped in my exam room. He listened, he wanted answers and solutions that were effective and that fit into my life. He truly cared and wanted to fix my issues. Plus, he made me realize I wasn't crazy for feeling the way I did during my whole painful experience prior to coming to see him.

      Dr Bhakta was FANTASTIC! Apologize for me having to wait so long in the office but I'm sure they were busy. Very thorough and respectful of me and my condition. Explained in a way that I could understand and answered all my questions satisfactory to me. I was hesitant at first to see him because I had Googled him which I do on my doctors that are new and there was a couple that had bad reviews about him but then there was several they had good reviews about him. He was completely opposite of the bad reviews so it must have been someone that just had an issue and didn't like what he had to say to him. I found it to be an awesome person friendly and knowledgeable of my problem and a solution to fix it. I also toldl him that as well.

      I would recommend Dr. Bhakta to any of my family or friends who is having any colorectal problems. He has done two surgeries on me and I got along great after them. He always has my tests and scopes scheduled at the appropriate times I need them done to make sure I stay healthy. Example of he sees me and tells me I need one in six months within a week after I see him I have my apppointment scheduled and sent to me .
