The Doctor was very specific as to my injury and the necessary follow-ups for x-rays and an MRI on my right ankle. He explained my current condition and the need for prompt further evaluations, which he immediately scheduled. I was very impressed with his professionalism and communications skills relative to my injury.Jun 13,2019
I was in there for about half an hour I spoke to someone all of three whole minutes maybeJun 13,2019
I fractured my foot and he didn't even examine the foot or even wrapped it with an ace bandage or the nurse and besides he had too many students in the roomJun 13,2019
Dr. Panchbhavi is absolutely remarkable. He is respectful of my needs and always takes the time to give me options and explains them all. I totally trust what he says, and think that there should be more doctors like him.Mar 07,2019
