Ratings for Dr. V. Bharadwaj
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.
My daughter was misdiagnosed by Bhardwaj for 2years. After multiple hearing tests, and being told everything was fine except for a wax build up we went elsewhere for a second opinion.. my daughter is almost deaf with a censornueral hearing loss. She did not get diagnosed til she was 5years old. My daughter is very behind in speech and now needs to be held back in Kindergarten. This late diagnosis has set her behind her pers abd will affect her the rest of her life!
