Waited 1 hour after my scheduled appointment time. The most egregious disrespect of my time ever. First visit is my lastvisit.

The best thing about this practice is you can get an appointment fairly quickly because they are in multiple locations. Initially, I thought the practice was pretty good. I visited the location in northern Maryland (The first time I thoughtthe doctor was very attentive to my teenage daughter so I went back during her follow up for an issue I was having.). I returned to the northern Maryland location and it was a different story (The doctor was running late and so he was beyond rushed during the follow up and my visit was a joke.). When I scheduled the appointment with the doctor today (in southern Maryland), I did not realize the practices were affiliated. I should have cancelled when I realized they were affiliated but it was too late since I scheduled yesterday evening. The doctor could have cared less about what was going on with my situation. I came in with a report of my history and since my pain was not as intense during the visit, he totally zoned out. FYI...just because a person is not crying and acting like a fool does not mean they are not in pain. I asked for a copy of the notes from the visit, the front desk person made me a copy and the doctor immediately came up to retrieve what she had given me before I had an opportunity to read all of the pages she copied. A second front desk associate informed me I could call the office for the notes after they were typed up. I assure you I would not have taken time from work to come to a doctor's appointment to basically be treated as if I was not in enough discomfort for treatment. I promise the third time was not a charm with this practice.

Awesome visit today. Very short wait when I arrived. Was called back to a room within 10 minutes of being seated. The nurse came in right away, asked questions, listened to my concerns and then went right into the next roomfor Xrays. After about a 10 minute wait the doctor came in to review my Xrays and examine me more closely for himself. Gave me next steps that I was comfortable with. I was in and out of the office in less than 45 minutes. Amazing experience!!! Highly recommend. All staff was friendly and professional.

This was the worst experience I've had with a doctor or practice. I felt rushed. The doctor seemed like he could care less and obviously annoyed with my questions. He came off cocky and arrogant. My experience was completely different inthe Silver Spring office with Dr Thompson. Dur to Dr. Bhatnagar I will not be back. Oh and the office does not have the ability to send scripts electronically.

Dr. Bhatnagar is an excellent doctor and surgeon. He has treated me for multiple issues some of which have required surgery. He does not immediately recommend surgery like numerous other doctors. He tries more conservative options like therapy,pain management, bracing, and other options first.. Surgery is a last option. He also does not put you on the strongest possible medications either. All of that is really impressive. Personally he is very friendly and pleasant. You can trust him with your care. His front office staff has definitely improved since my last visit.

He gave me a splint that was clearly too big. So much so it was side ways once he secured it with tape. By the time I got to my car it was halfway off of my finger. I’ll be seeing another doctor tomorrow.

As in the past, the office was busy and the wait was typical of most practices (no one is likely to see you at the exact appointment time). However, the office is pleasant and well run, so the wait was nota bad thing -- and again, typical. As for Dr. Bhatnagar, as always, pleasant, direct, a great anatomist, knows his orthopedics, found the problem promptly and treated it quickly and with no problem. As in the past, I am very happy with the service provided and would recommend Dr. B. very highly

This was my first appointment and this physician was highly recommended. Unfortunately, I had to wait over an hour to be seen and this seemed to be the norm in the waiting room. I'm not accustomed to long wait times indoctor's offices and not sure if I will return to this practice.

Dr Rishi himself is great and personable. He was able to diagnose my shoulder pain immediately and provide remedial steps. His staff is nice and friendly, including the front desk which had to deal with a lot of frustrated (impatient) people.However, maybe this place is just too popular, because the waiting area is always full and I had to wait over an hour and a half to be seen. Which is fine, I am patient and understanding. But perhaps book less people or anticipate the wait time better? Because what's the point of booking a time slot if it is 1-2 hours off?

The Dr and his staff are competent and professional. However, although I arrived at 9:20 for my 9:30 appointment, I wasn't seen until 10:30. My time is just as valuable as the doctor's and that should be respected. Thank you.

Dr. Rishi is an excellent doctor. Although the wait time can be long, it is inevitable that a doctor of his caliber to be overbooked. Wait time is worth it when you get the medical attention he provides. If only we could clone him.

The staff brought a brace over, which the doctor never mentioned. Then they could not confirm if my insurance would cover it and what my approx cost would be if insurance didn't cover it. They would not write me a prescriptionso I could buy from a pharmacy either. So my option was to take it or leave it with no other assistance. Avoid this place at all cost!

Usually I am seen right away but this particular day, I had to wait an hour for my appointment and the waiting room is packed. I didnt mind the wait so much but as in the past, there is an gentleman(manager?) who works behind the counter, who always seems cross, giving direction and talking to employees in an unpleasent manner. His tone reflects negativity on this office, which otherwise the staff is pleasent.

Dr. Rishi is a great doctor. He takes time to explain the nature of your injury, symptoms, and all possible outcomes. He starts with conservative treatments and does not rush into invasive treatments ,which is hard to find in doctors thesedays. He is very polite and and professional. I recommend him highly to friends and family.
