Ratings for Dr. Vatsala R. Bhaskar
Dr. B is hands down the best doctor I know. She is truly compassionate, professional, and her love of children is apparent as soon as you meet her. I LOVE the fact she has no call service. I have called this poor woman at 4am, with concerns over a very sick child, and she was courteous and more then helpful. As a mom of five I feel more then blessed by God to have found such an amazing and knowledgeable doctor for my children.
Doctor Bhaskar has been my children's doctor most of their lives and my son is turning 18 in a few months. She truly is an amazing loving caring woman and doctor. Yes, sometimes you have to wait a little while but it is so worth it. She has been on top of every issue my children have had over the years! Love her and her staff
I cannot say enough about Dr. Bhaskar and her staff. These people truly care about my children. Despite all the patients she has, she always has time and knows my children by name when we walk through the door. When my son was hospitalized a few years back, through a misdiagnosis of an emergency room doctor, she was there for us and insisted he be hospitalized,and cared for my son as if he were her own child. I really believe had it not been for her expertise, my child would not be here today. You can't get that with every doctor. She is highly recommended in my book. sometimes there is a little wait in her office but if you understand that she takes time with all her patients, you shouldn't have a problem. I for one don't liked to be rushed out of a doctor's office and realize I forgot to ask several important questions. She and the staff are like family. Love her!!!!!!!!!!
This office is not a frendly environment. There's only one doctor. Appointments are limited. I waited a full day to get a call back after reporting a problem with my child. Staff is unprofessional. Appointments are made in a "book". The office does not use computers. The wait before eahc visit was close to an hour for us each time we saw the doctor. I did not feel welcome calling the office. There's only one doctor in this practice and she seems to be overwhelmed with the number of patients she has. When this doctor is away, you see a PA in her office but they still charge your insurance like you would see the doctor. I find this very unethical. The PA we saw misdiagnosed our child. They also lost my child's ultrasound results I needed to get them directly from the source. Offices are dusty. Toys in the offices are filty. I would not recommend this doctor at all. We switched to a different professional and are now a happy family with a much happier child that receives wonderful care.
I met Dr. Bhaskar while using another doctor. When my daughter was a little baby she was always getting sick the other doctor (which I do like as a person & Dr.) keep giving her antibiotics and when that didn't work shot her up with them. I met Dr Bhaskar as a relief doctor as soon as she looked at my chart she was like mommy this is not good and sent me to a specialist. Found out my daughter had an Immune Deficiency that was a heads up. Then my daughter kept getting ear infections again antibiotics for almost 6 months saw Dr Bhaskar again she said not good sent her to an ENT they saw she lost like 5% hearing and did surgery to put tubes in her ears. Thank God all is fine. Dr Bhaskar is very aggressive when my daughter is sick knowing her history . I would never Change from Dr Bhaskar she really cares about and loves her patients,so much as to come in on her time off or meet you at the hospital for them. She is truly the best doctor out there Love you Dr Bhaskar Love, Raquel & Eileen
Dr. Bhaskar and her staff are always there for your children and you. She will answer any questions you have and if she doesn't know she will find the answer. She will follow up with your children until she is sure they are ok at no extra charge even if it is a phone call at 8 pm. She is the most caring doctor I have met.
There are not enough wonderful thoughts and praise for Dr. Bhaskar and her staff. My son has been going there since birth and we feel like family. Dr. Bhaskar is ALWAYS willing to listen and isn't quick to hand out meds, she actually wants to SEE her patients to ensure they are OK. She doesn't even have an answering service, she is on call 24 x 7. We are blessed to have her as our son's doctor (as well as her office staff). Our 18 month old recently needed surgery for a broken elbow and her office staff could not have been more genuinely helpful and concerned. They are the BEST!!!
Dr. Bhaskar is the best!! She is a very competant and knowledgable doctor with a terrific bedside manner. She is so sweet to my son, not aggressive or impatient at all. She is not quick to prescribe antibiotics or other medications which is important to me. Additionally, her office staff is wonderful and phone calls to her are returned promptly. You will not be disappointed with her!
