My experiences with Dr. B

I have been seeing Dr. Bhakta for many years due to back surgeries and osteoarthritis. He has always been professional and courteous. He is extremely knowledgeable about pain management. He listens to me in regards to my situation and gets the job done. He is very skilled at what he does. I'm very particular about who I let work on my spine. Anyway, that's my two cents.

Fed-up patient of 10+ years

I have been a long time patient of Dr Bhakta, who I never had a problem with, (although my husband has never liked him). But looking back, I now believe that I may have had some kind of Stockholm Syndrome because he was giving me medication that lessened my pain & I was just fearful of going somewhere else and not being able to get the medication I thought I needed. But there were many things I see now that I put up with. First of all, he never addressed my overall problem, which is Fibromyalgia. He only want to talk about 'what was hurting worst' on each visit. He just continued to increase my opioid medication - to the level above what severe cancer sufferers are prescribe. I had no idea it was at that level since I didn't have knowledge of what is appropriate. He just asked me each visit, 'do you want to change anything about your medications?' I finally told him that I wished to try to decrease them to 'reset my system' (I have found out since that this should be done every few years by your DOCTOR). Recently (mid-october) I was in the ER and needed pain medication(which you can't get from any dr but him, which I totally understand) and his wife (who runs the office & practice), refused to speak to him about the situation. The ER doctor couldn't even get in contact with him - she had to talk to his wife! Then his wife started holding my RXs hostage until I made extra pymts on a balance, (which I was already making the pymts she told me I had to made in order for the dr to keep treating me). Btw, the balance was incurred due to their incompetence in working with the insurance company. Besides all of that the receptionist and his wife, are very short with patients and rude most of the time. I really should have found a new doctor many years ago!

Unbelievable

This Dr is unbelievable! I am a chronic pain sufferer of 15 years, and have never had a dr treat me with such disrespect. He listened intently during my first apt. but right away started recommending procedures. Without having examined me or having my records. Ones that I'd already had, but not by him, and his hands are a gift from God to people in pain!! The arrogance was off the charts! Then he required that I bring my husband to my next appointment, or he wouldn't treat me... I am nearly 40yrs old. Proceeded to tell my husband that I would probably die in my sleep and be the next Anna Nicole Smith or Heath Ledger. Refused to treat me unless I would consent to procedures, and med change. I took the Meds and ran, found a new dr, called to cancel and was told the appt was already cancelled as I had broken contract and am non-compliant drug seeker. All because I take a little bit of Percocet, and muscle relaxers at night. Two major back surgeries, countless procedures, and fibromyalgia.
