Still in pain show details Still in pain
by RC on Mar 6th, 2016

Took three weeks to get "first available " appointment. Then 4 days later I called back and asked if I could get in sooner and was told "first available " was 4 days sooner at a different location . Not sure why I wasn't offered that the first time I called . I arrived on time and was taken back within 15 minutes of my appointment time. First I met with his PA. She took a history , moved my joint around and said the doctor would be in shortly . He arrived within 5 minutes . I asked him if he wanted to know the background . He said his assistant had filled him in. He moved my joint around , spent about 5 minutes with me, never even sat down and said I didn't need surgery ( which sounded good at the time) and that his PA would be in to give me a shot of cortisone and that I should schedule PT a week later. I got the shot and left. $250.00 for his 5 minutes . Another $225.00 for a $3.00 shot. Two months of PT later I am still in pain. He came recommended as "THE" guy to go to. All I can say to that is: If he's the best, the rest must have gotten their degrees through mail order.

After paying my $50 copay and waiting an hour to see the doctor he was annoyed that I actually wanted him to have a conversation with him. How dare I question the results of the MRI that he disregarded as incorrect.

I would not hesitate recommending Dr. Brahmabhatt! He is an excellent, caring doctor and a remarkable surgeon. My issue, however, is with the wait time in the office. Schedule your appointment on a day you have nowhere else to be, or be prepared to wait over an hour from your scheduled appointment time. I also did not appreciate having to walk through a crowded waiting room in a hospital gown from the doctors office which was one one side of the building to the Xray room on the other side. Office logistics and management could be improved.

He's a great doctor, perhaps a little too quick during a visit. He should slow down and give people time to think. I just had surgery and I'm very pleased and happy with the results. I'd definitely recommend him to someone else.

I think my experience with the doctor was fantastic. He treated me for a torn ACL, and performed the surgery. He was accurate and precise in his diagnosis. He gave me a lot of information about the injury and made sure I understood what everything meant. He always asks if I have any questions. I'm very happy with the results of the surgery so far, and would recommend him to anyone. His bedside manner is excellent. He's very outgoing and a good communicator.
