Dr Bhattacharya took enough time to understand my concerns and expectations, and suggested effectove treatment to which I agreed. She was caring, knowledgeable and efficient which was needed under the circumstances. Sending the prescription to the pharmacy was a bit delayed which became a bottleneck given the pharmacy backlogs. The team's attentiveness to my messages was very helpful. Many thanks!!

She is a great listener, ansks important questions, and has wonderful energy. Most importantly, she was able to suggest a diagnosis for something I suffered far too long that no one else could figure out. The fact that she cares is evident.

I like Dr. Bhattacharya but I think sometimes she can be very distant. Again, it's frustrating when you're in pain and you have a very serious issue and you JUST saw your doctor but you're just another number or patient to her.

I do not feel Dr. Bhattacharya is thorough in her examination (especially as a fairly new patient). I have to offer most information. We did not discuss any smoking, drinking, or exercise habits and I had high cholesterol on my last blood test panel which makes me feel uneasy. In addition, once told she was going to perform a pelvic exam specifically (after receiving a pap smear), she entered my rectum and did not do any pelvic exam afterwards or acknowledge what happened.
