Professional. To the point. Explained his reasoning for continued care therapy and why I needed to go to PT at hospital which has many more choices of specialized equipment than in-home PT therapist coming to me can offer. Told me why I needed certain type of sling rather than other choices. Told me when I would have follow-up. Told me what to expect. Maggie and Corrine and his staff were excellent and explaining details and expectations. At 72 years I have never broken any large bone in my body nor have I had experience with any family members doing likewise. They explained everything more than once if I needed clarification.

Dr. Bhatia was more than 30 minutes late for the appointment that I waited two weeks for and he may have spent 5 minutes with me. He asked if I had any questions and was out of the room before I could ask. I don't know if he read any of my record before seeing me or if his assistant filled him in on what she found out.
