Specialties

Dr. Payal N Bhandari has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

"IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT A PREGANCY YOU SHOULD TAKE PRENATAL VITAMINS"

Dr. Bhandari actually said that to me during a consultation about contraception. When I said, "but wait, that won't keep me from getting pregnant?" she looked at me as though I were incredibly stupid and said, "no, of course not." Throughout the visit, I got the feeling that, as I am in my early thirties, I was simply "too old" to be requesting contraception. I left without any. To make things worse, though her practice's staff and website both insist that they accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield, they in fact do not. It's no problem for them, as they can collect from either insurance or the patient. However, this deceit is more than a little inconvenient.

Doctor's Response

I take your comments seriously. I have since moved into solo practice at 2100 Webster Street, Suite 502. Please contact me at your convenience at 415-506-9393 so I can help rectify your concerns. Most Sincerely, Payal Bhandari M.D.
