Knowledgeable excellent physician
June 27, 2022
I felt at ease with dr Bhandari. He listened and answered all my questions. He has a soft-spoken voice and sounds like a very kind person.
June 23, 2022
On this last visit I had with my doctor, my cardiologist, I was not satisfied. He provided very little time and I felt that he didn't know my history and I didn't feel confident. Before, he was a very good doctor, but I don't know what happened this time. It's just been this time that I haven't been satisfied with my visit with Mr. Bhandari. The rest of the people were kind, but I felt like Dr. Bhandari did not dedicate enough time and so therefore I was not satisfied. It was like he didn't care about me as a patient. Okay. Bye.
June 23, 2022
Dr Bhandari is great
June 16, 2022
Amazing Dr
June 06, 2022
Dr. Bhandari is very, very helpful. Very (INAUDIBLE) to speak with us and very friendly. We definitely recommend him to anyone. And the office staff is also very pleasant and(INAUDIBLE). Except for when
June 03, 2022
The doctor's office is very, very good. I mean, (INAUDIBLE) Valley cardiologist, very excellent. Excellent people. Excellent staff. Everybody is great. Thank you.
June 03, 2022
Yes. For my appointment to see Dr. Bhandari, I was checked in and my blood pressure was taken. And my EKG was done in about 10 minutes and then I was left in the examining room alone for about 40 minutes. Okay. And, you know, when I finally saw the doctor I asked him why he didn't come and see me sooner, and ... or why he didn't send somebody in to let me know that he was going to be delayed. He explained to me that he was on a phone ... on the phone discussing another patient's case and that's why he was late to see me. I told him, again, that he should have sent somebody in to the examining room while I was waiting to tell me that he was going to be late. I would appreciated if he had

Dr. Bhandari is one of the most professional and effective communicators I have run across in all my medical provider experience. He listens, thinks ask questions a skill set that is unfortunately lacking in many other medical providers. I am totally comfortable with my health care involving this man and will continue to seek his sage advise and care as long as I can
May 12, 2022
one elevator was out, making for delayed and crowded other elevator.
May 12, 2022
Appreciated the concern and follow up by the doctor and the follow up via a conference call
May 12, 2022
The only comment I have is that it is too difficult to schedule appointments since the only option is to call the office and wade through the process. I had to call four times to see if an earlier appointment time was available. PIH needs to add an online appointment scheduler option so patients can easily make and change appointments.
May 12, 2022
Overall great service, great people, doctor, and staff. Over (INAUDIBLE) 45 minutes late getting to meet with the doctor.
May 05, 2022
Dr Bhandari is the GREATEST & has a WONDERFUL and pleasant staff.
May 03, 2022
My concerns were validated and a plan was developed and is being executed. I was fit with a heart monitor before I left my appt. and have a return appt. I wish the appt were in three weeks instead of four because I have an anxious time waiting for responses to tests.
April 21, 2022
Dr B was thoughtful, caring, a good listener and provider of advice. I was impressed
April 19, 2022
Yes, Dr. Bhandari, very efficient. He was patient. He listened to all of my concerns. We offered options as far as what if scenarios, you know, just I keep looking form to let us know that that he's looking at every aspect. A very good doctor, very kind respectful and and he takes his time. Thank you.
April 18, 2022
The experience was excellent and I always use with the staff and Dr. Bhandari couldn't be any better. Thank you.

March 10, 2022
I make my decisions based on experience and good advice. I sought out Dr. Bhandari for his expertise and he did not disappoint. I look forward to being under his care.
March 10, 2022
In this day and age where customer service is seemingly non-existent, it is a breath of fresh air to have a medical professional and staff that is truly professional and can actually have meaningful conversation with. I am so impressed with Dr. Bhandari, I can't say enough about him! I feel I can completely trust him and that's saying alot!
March 10, 2022
I am still missing my retired doctor, but was assigned a new cardiologist by him, and I trust his judgment. Therefore, I am receptive to the younger, highly recommended cardiologist/electrophysiologist and look forward to many new a-fib-free years.
March 03, 2022
Hi, Dr. Bhandari has been looking after me for about 14 years. I am so impressed with him and he follows up with me. His staff is excellent and I've never had better care from any doctor in my life. Thank you.
March 01, 2022
Everything was extremely perfect
February 17, 2022
Had a good first visit with Dr. Bhandari after my cardiologist of about a dozen years retired from the group. I was impressed that he had taken the time to get up on my medical history and he had a very pleasant and concerned demeanor. The office (where I have gone for the past 12 years) is very efficient and timely.
February 10, 2022
Service was first class.
February 08, 2022
Overall experience was great. The doctor and staff were very professional and courteous. I look forward to my continued care with them. Thank you!
February 03, 2022
This is an exceptional provider. This gentleman is passionate about his work, he's knowledgeable, he's an expert. He stayed after hours to accommodate my schedule. This is the kind of person that every hospital dreams of employing. Do whatever you can to retain this guy.
February 01, 2022
Dr. Bhandari has been caring for me since 1996, including critical care for my brother-in-law. I trust him implicitly with my cardiac care.
January 27, 2022
Hi there, when we... when I arrived I was handed a digital iPad kind of thing to fill out some notes who I was, etc. But what it really was was advertising that pitched some sort of save care discount for pharmacy to me. And maybe that's the way that the office can do it for free. But I really thought that that was inappropriate. Maybe I could have skipped it. There might have been a button to say skip this and move on but I certainly didn't notice it. It just felt really cheesy. That's it.
January 25, 2022
Very smooth check in process. Felt very comfortable with this provider and office staff.
January 18, 2022
We felt very confident about the experience of Dr. Bhandari and seem very knowledgeable and professional and friendly. And I got the only thing is that he's only area once a week and I sure wish I could be more where we if we need to get in to see him or will have more of a variety of dates and times and that's it. I think he's excellent.
January 04, 2022
It was a good visit
January 04, 2022
I have been to a lot of doctors' offices, and this one was head-and-shoulders above the rest. Dr. B was immediately warm and caring, he explained things clearly, he asked questions and listened to what I had to say. He did not rush through the appointment. His staff were excellent-knowledgeable, helpful, kind, treated me with respect. A very pleasant experience.
January 03, 2022
I was very happy with Dr. Bhandari, and with the medical office seeing me, In short notice. I do think in the future that when you say, I have a few questions for you, and you have as many as you have and you're calling during dinner III, just think that could be done better. That's all. Thank you.
December 20, 2021
Why don't you tell me the name of the provider?
December 13, 2021
Dr. Bhandari's dedication to his practice is evident. He evokes confidence and trust in the process. The staff were very nice and efficient. I am waiting on a callback today to schedule a procedure. So far so good.

December 09, 2021
Or that I just had problems with the medicine issue and that a doctor prescribed the medicines and normal for me, because (unreadable) and order the medicine that was what confused me a bit, but from there to there until now everything is going well.
December 07, 2021
I called to see Dr. Bhandari about something that was going on with my heart . I needed him to hear what was going on. [removed name] took my call and was able to get Dr Bhandari to see me, even though I did not have a scheduled appointment.I can't thank them enough for fitting me in to their busy day to resolve my issues.Dr Bhandari always takes time to explain things and reassure me that I get the best advice. I can't thank him enough.
