I'm new to BSW but Dr. Bhandarkar has been my dermatologist for over 3.5 years. I followed her to BSW because she is very smart and also very personable. She is thorough and professional and puts the patient at ease in what could be an awkward or uncomfortable situation. As long as she will have me as a patient, I'll want her as my doctor.
