    The staff is very friendly and efficient. I arrived very early for my appointment (45 minutes) and yet I was seen within 10 minutes of my arrival. While I know that is quite unusual, it was nice to know that the staff didn't just sit around and wait until my scheduled appointment time to call be back to see the doctor. Once in the treatment room I met Dr. Bhatla for the first time. He was friendly, had a good sense of humor and put me at ease right away. He was prepared, having already studied my medical record, and he answered all of my questions in detail. My entire experience was excellent.
