Have you seen Dr. Suman Bhat?
Posted on March 6th, 2017
Dr Bhat is extremely disrespectful and rude. During our first meeting I tried to be completely open and honest with my emotions and my previous treatment plans. She was extremely judgmental about my life style. She pushed me to take mood stabilizers or she wouldn't refill the antidepressant I was already on. I agreed then got the prescription filled but never took them. I told the dr I felt my condition wasn't severe enough to take mood stabilizers and she told me I couldn't come back if I didn't take them. She refused to fill my prescription a second time although I told her I needed it to avoid withdrawal. On top of that, I waited two hours in the waiting room. She scheduled 3 people for appointments at 1:30. She thinks her time is more valuable than anyone else's.

Well it probably would have been good if she wasn't running an hour and a half behind all the time my appointment is at 2.but she got here a 130 and that means there are 10 yes 10 people ahead of me. I should bill her for my time waiting

The worst doctor ever. Would not see me because I did not have an unexpected $2 co-pay that was never required before. When I tried to use my card they laughed and said it was a $10 minimum.

I wouldn't see this woman EVEN if I had plans to jump off the highest bridge! Who wants to waste their last hours waiting in a crowded waiting room for 1.5 hours to see someone who is a nasty creapy individual. The terrible office staff are just prelude to the doctor who in the end is worse then the office staff. I am an RN, and this woman has one foot on a banana peel and one foot in an asylum. Please, don't waste your time.
You never get the appointment time they give you!

First of all Dr. Bhat does not arrive to work until she wants to, which is between 12 noon to 1:00 pm. It seems that they schedule about 4 to 5 people per hour. Most of the time she starts off behind schedule. I think she feels that the patients need her more than she needs them and it is a privilege to see her. The staff is slow in getting the paper work taken care of because of extra chatting with each other. It does not pay to be early, they will only take the order of the appointment even is they are so far behind. Plan on being there for 1 to 2 and half hours with only a 10 to 15 min. visit with the doctor. She is knowledgeable but not very helpful if you any paperwork filled out for your insurance. You can pay for a copy of her notes to be sent to them, which the insurance companies do not like, so they give you a hard time. She does give out a lot of prescriptions.

Had an appt at 5. They called and wanted me to come in at 3:30. Husband left work early to take me. When we got there we sat there until 4:15 . I asked how much longer and found there were 2 people before me and they arrived after I did. I asked why they called me in early if they were going to make me sit and wait until 5, my original appt time. Girl at desk said she did not call me and that it was the other girl and she had left for the day. Then a man in the back office told me if I didn't like waiting I could leave, so I did. Very unprofessional office staff. Treated very rudely. Note this review reflects the staff not the Dr.
Bhat is a licenced drug dealer.

This has got to be the biggest joke of a phychatrist. Her staff is a joke. She is a joke. She pushs meds, meds, meds. If there are any complications to her meds she refuses to see the patient. Her staff lies saying your referral is no good when it is good and cancels appointments. The average wait in her waiting room is 4 hours with only a 5 minute visit and she is pushing meds, meds, meds. Doctor Bhat is a licenced drug dealer.

Dr Bhat is the worse doctor I have ever been to, she should not be allowed to practice. I don't understand why she is a psychiatrist because she doesn't care about her patients. I waited an hour and a half past my appointment the first time I saw her. The second time I went, she wasn't even there yet. Patients in the waiting room had been waiting for over an hour. I had somewhere else to be so I did not wait. The receptionist was very rude to me. Don't go to her, she doesn't care about her patients. I am now out of my depression medications and cannot get into another psychiatrist for almost two weeks. She has so many signs up in her office telling what she will not do. What does she do?
Why is she in business

I have been to this doctor several times and each time the visit has become worse. First off as you walk in There are signs all over the reception window such as " she will not fill out any kinds of forms, and no one else can come into the room with you to see the doctor. The receptionist are some of the worse I have had any dealings with yet. They do not care how they treat the people coming into the office to see this doctor. They will try their best to humiliate you by some of the smug things they say to you. This doctor is the worse doctor I have ever been to in all my years of life. She will out right tell you she does NOT want to hear anything about your problems and you need to go to a counselor for this. If you try to say anything she will shut you up right away and close her ears to what you say and you will feel like "why did I come to her"? She will only deal with the medications she pushes on you to take. She seems to have a pill for whatever you complain about as far as your medical problem. She is unkind, uncaring, and very sarcastic. Just like the receptionist she hires. This is a pill doctor only. She will only talk about how the pills are helping you and if she thinks you need more she has no problem writing you out more prescriptions or stronger ones. Bottom line is if you want pills and do not care how you are treated, this is the place to go. I left this doctor because I feel I deserve to be treated with kindness and respect and dignity from a doctor I hire and from the people they hire.
A PHD who will NOT discuss things with paitent. Pill Pusher only

Very long wait. Don't mind that.She is a PHD who will not take any time to talk to paitent of anything of quality. Its ONLY about writing you a RX!She could care lss if patient has a problem. If you try to go into anything she gets upset cause your taking/wasing her time. She only wants to know about the meds. She has NO BUSINESS in PHD. She should only be working for a pain management Pill popping company. She is a very bad doctor I felt for her field title. I would NOT send anyone I care about to her or anyone who really needs help for they would not recieve the care they needed. The staff is also fairly rude. In addition, they want to charge people extra for no shows yet they constantly cut off the phone to answering service who will not allow you to take a message. They cut phone on and off 30 minutes to an hour late and early.It is a very bad buiness with no smiles anywhere to be found in that office from staff to patients. very sad down office place to go to

Worst Dr. experience of my life.
Posted on December 29th, 2010
I showed up for my Dr. apt. after making an apt. two weeks ago with the receptionist. After waiting in the waiting room for an hour and 15 mins. the receptionist told me that my insurance co. did not cover Dr. Bhat. I asked her if I could go ahead and see the Dr. and if I wasn't covered they could send me a bill. She then told me "we don't know you" in Ebonics, with an extremely rude look on her face. I then told her that I had taken off work and canceled a couple of other Dr. appointments to make this one. I told her my prescription was empty and I was scheduled to start a new job the following week and needed to refill my prescription as soon as possible. She began to get angry and told me that there was nothing she could do. So, I asked to speak with the Dr. She then gave me a look of shock and told me that there was no way I could speak to the Dr. I told her that I wasn't leaving until I spoke to the Dr. or her boss (which are one in the same). She then picked up the phone and began dialing 9-1-1. I assume to call the police to have me arrested for trespassing. So I left immediately. She then called my cell phone about 5 mins. later to let me know that I was not welcome back there anymore. I, again, tried to explain to her my situation. But, while doing so, she hung up on me.This was, by far, the worst Dr. visit of my life. Unless the receptionist is fired tomorrow, I would recommend to everyone to never, ever, visit Dr. Suman Bhat's office.
