Ratings for Dr. V. Bharadwaj
I did not have the negative experiences at all! He was helpful, pleasant, and found out what the issue was that had been plaguing me for many years. He knows what he is talking about, and likely does not mince words, but neither do I. I am going back for a third 'yearly' appointment.
Saw this dr because of ringing in my ears. He asked "do you want to live or die" what kind of idiot question is that? I feel I was was used to increase his pocket change. At my age I should of gone for a second opinion ! Operation on my throat and nose came out a lot worse than had thought. I'm six weeks in now and not happy with how my operation turned out. If I could upload photos I would! If you're seeing this dr for the first time, I suggest getting a second opinion please!! He doesn't like you asking questions as he feels you're questioning his ability! He was rude to my husband when he asked a question. All he does is scribble on a sticky note to show what your problem is and he calls that educating you. I've fired this dr and waiting on a new appointment with a dr. I leave this post to remind people to seek second opinion always !! Don't regret it like I have. Good luck
This was by far the worst experience I have ever had with an ENT physician. I have never felt so insulted and offended when visiting a doctor. Dr. Bharadwaj was incredibly rude, argumentative, and dismissive. He told me no one wanted to here about my symptoms and quote "I don't have time for you, I'm too busy today". This was only my second time seeing the doctor in 3 months. I have noticed my symptoms have been changing and getting worse but instead of letting me explain, he accused me of being paranoid and refused to even check. I was nothing but calm and polite because I simply wanted to give an update on my situation and keep record of the changes because I have legitemate health concerns. I have a right to be proactive about my health, and when i notice changes to an on-going issue, report it. Instead I was treated like a child and was not even given the chance to get a word in. Within minutes i was kicked out of the office and left shaking with embarrassment and anger. I have read reviews on here which I cannot agree with more. He takes only seconds to look at you, is 100% about the diagnosis, and will ask you to leave his office to see the next patient if you dare question anything, or ask too many questions. After seeing the reviews regarding his advice that everything is fine, yet it turning out to be cancer has me scared too death. This is the very reason I went to him. No review could fully grasp how uncomfortable i felt in that space or in his presence. I am shocked at how he carried himself as a professional, and wondering how an office sees this as a fit way to conduct business. No doctor should ever engage with their patients in such a way. I am sorry for those who have been treated like this and for future patients who will be.
Tonselectomy: The Dr was clear and to the point. He presented himself as knowledgable, experienced and professional which was very reassuring! I did have a complication after my surgury which required me to return to emerge (the complication was due to choking; my fault). When the ENT on call that day came to check on me, he described what he saw as prestige. He was impressed with how well it looked minus the minor bleeding. Post surgury, I had gone back to the office to get a doctors note and upon hearing I had returned to emerge the doctor followed up with a visual check to ensure everything looked good. The staff in the operation room had nothing but good things to say about him as well. It is clear he enjoys his profession and takes it very seriously. Very happy with the overall experience!
I haven't even had my surgery yet and all I've have is problem after problem with these people. As an individual with a disability, and someone who has NEVER been under anesthesia before I came into the appointment with a lot of questions. First and foremost I asked how the procedure was going to be done (I am getting my tonsils removed). I specifically asked the Dr are you going to be cauterizing the area. His immediate response, rather than explain it to me, was "why?" I was so taken aback and explained I'd like to know what was going to happen to me while I was under. He then said that he was going to do what was best and that he makes no promises. I get that, and I'm not challenging you I would just like to know what is going to happen to me. He also made some off handed comment regarding my dog now allowed in the surgery area. Thanks buddy I've had a service dog for sometime now and believe you me I know where I am and am not permitted to take her. Basically I left there in tears. After the appointment came payment. And wow that in itself was the hardest thing! The TLDR version is I needed the Dr to fill out a form which stated I was getting a necessary surgery which I was bluntly told was not. Well I was reffed to you by my family doctor because clearly something is wrong with my throat. I'm not getting my tonsils removed for shits and giggles. So after that whole issue I show up to their office to pay. The receptionist asked me how I would like to pay, and I replied debit. "Oh I'm sorry we dont take debit. Just cash, check, or credit" are you kidding me!? At some point it would have been nice to fucking know that! Absolutely the worst personal experience I've ever had at a place where people are suppose to be "professional" I haven't even had my surgery yet and I'm extremely nervous because I feel as though I cannot trust him. My recommendation, don't go there if you're new to the surgery world, they are not helpful, not accommodating, not compassionate, and just generally not nice.
Not exactly sure why there is bad reviews. The doctor performed surgery on my left ear and did a wonderful job even had a question for him during recovery and he gave me his personal number to reach him anytime. Amazing.... Thanks doc look forward to my appt on Monday for my hearing test.
I have nothing but good things to say about Dr.Bharadwaj. He's always been friendly to me and really took the time to explain everything. The treatment he prescribed has helped me immensely and I've never waited in his office for more than 15 minutes. I had some troubles while he was working on my nose (I'm a fainter!) and he was patient and kind through the whole ordeal. He's a very nice man and a knowledgeable doctor.
Met this doctor in ER when my 13 months old was having nose bleeds. By far the worst doctor ever. My son has hemaphilia and have a card from McMaster how to treat him if he ever bleed. Still every time my son end up in the ER this doc wants to put him out and cauterize him even though it said right on the card to treat him with " factors" transfusion.
Staff is friendly, but the Dr. is not personable whatsoever, he diagnoses you with a problem so quickly and is so certain about everything. Don't dare question him on anything, it will just trigger him and he might just get you to leave his office to see the next patient. He might be knowledgable, but his ego can cause him to misdiagnose you, because he acts 100% certain about any problem he thinks you have.
