Dr. Bhargava became interested in the field of pediatrics while growing up as the oldest of many young cousins. She attended medical school in India, and then came to Los Angeles for her residency after getting married. “Pediatrics is a very gratifying field,” Dr. Bhargava explains. “Where else can you have fun at work while holding babies and getting hugs from kids?” Dr. Bharagava says she really enjoys interacting with parents and their children. In her spare time, Dr. Bhargava likes to travel and enjoys spending time with her family. She also loves gardening.

Dr. Bhargava is exceptional. She's good with both children and their parents. She's never condescending, and she always gives clear and thoughtful answers. We feel very lucky to have her helping us keep our son healthy.

Physician seemed to rush through the appointment. It would be nice if physician would take more time to listen and address the concern instead of rushing through.

The receptionist who scheduled my appointment was really sweet and took care of my request in a timely and respectful manner. Thank you! (name removed) assisted with my daughter's visit and made her feel comfortable and special. My daughter received two shots and a prick on her fingers and didn't cry at all due to (name removed) making her comfortable explaining the process. Dr. Bhargava was really sweet to my daughter and answered all my questions. She took her time with our visit and didn't make us feel rushed. Thank you all for what you do. Keep up the wonderful work.

My child was diagnosed with an ear infection and they failed to send the prescription to the pharmacy by end of the day so I could start my child on antibiotics as soon as possible. My child went another night in pain due to lack of follow-through on their part and it was very frustrating.

Dr Bhargava has been my younger kid's pediatrician for over 14 years. She has been wonderful!!! I continue to pray that she will not retire until all my kids are over 18 years of age!!!!

Dr. Bhargava was my pediatrician growing up and she's still the great pediatrician that she was when I was growing up as she is with my three kids, who my oldest is now 20 years old. She listens to our concerns and gives us strategies and we talk through whatever health issues we're having and we always come with a good health plan. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I'm not comfortable with virtual appt I feel my daughter should have been seen in person. She's still very congested and running a fever (day 6 now).

Very excellent provider. I think I marked the wrong code on the last question on it. If I would recommend her, I would definitely recommend her. Always, that could be fixed. She's excellent. She listened. She answers questions. She never please down and eating that I have to say. She's very intent on getting the referrals and the needs and knowing my child. Thank you.

Dr. Bhargava and the office staff are so great. We were previous a patient there, on my kids were, and we are so happy to be able to come back, since our insurance changed. That was the only reason why. We are super happy with the office and staff. The response time, and the doctors are also, great and [name removed], too. She's been a godsend. Thank you, PIH.

It was all professional and caring. The only comment I do have, is that the nurse indicated I had to have labs at a PIH facility and no other facility. I asked if I can get an order for Quest because it's more convenient for me since I live out of the area and I have PPO insurance. I went to PIH labs, in Whittier, and they said the cost would be less if I went to Quest. In previous years, I have gone to Quest to get my lab work. I don't understand why the nurse said I had to go to a PIH lab facility.

Dr. Bhargava always take the time to listen to my concern regarding the medical care of my children: She genuinely care for the patients.
October 15, 2021
Dr. Bhargava is a great provider. I trust to have my children in her care.
October 08, 2021
The policy or only allowing one parent back with the child is unacceptable. Both parents care about the well-being of their children and what to hear what the doctor has to say about their growth and development. I took time away from work only to be told I wasn't able to join my wife. This is unacceptable.
October 07, 2021
Dr. Bhargava is the best doctor my daughters can have !
