Dr Bhatia is extremely professional. He spending the time to ask my son questions and exam his knee. Dr Bhatia also gives us time to voice our questions and concerns about my sons care. We do not feel rushed at the follow ups. His staff is amazing and easy to contact. It is truly personalized medicine. I love that we can call directly into his office instead of a call center. Top notch medicine.

One of the reasons I appreciate Dr. Bhatia is that he is not the type to jump to surgery as a healing method. He tried to help my injury with physical therapy and injections. But when those failed to alleviate the pain, he was confident he could help with shoulder arthroscopy. The surgery and recovery have thus far gone well. After a year of pain and discomfort, I am extremely thankful for that.

Dr. Bhatia was recommended by my doctor at Carle in Champaign, IL because he is an expert on this surgery. Everyone I spoke to told me the same thing. I felt this is true.
