We were very impressed by Dr. Bhalla's knowledge of records sent to him by other doctors & hospital and him in general.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Dr. Bhalla - Excellent! Pertinent answers to questions, understandable explanations, excellent review of previous medical records, excellent "bed-side" manner. High recommend him as a physician/specialist.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

2 blood tests were ordered. One on day of visit 1 5 days later. When I showed up for 2nd test, orders had been canceled requiring an hour of my time to get a critical test re-written. Not the first time I have had this happen.
