Dr. Bapat presented with a genuine interest in my concerns. His had a comforting presence that put me at ease. He was easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and showed no frustration in the amount of questions I asked (as a nurse- I had a lot of questions). I am confident in his care and I feel he will take excellent care of me. Dr. Bapat truly embodies Baylor's core values- he never settles for anything less than well rounded excellent care.

Dr Bapat does a great job explaining things and has a good bedside manner. Sometimes there are delays in responses when leaving messages, but I'm sure that is because they are a busy office.

Many of these items are not appropriate, as Dr. B and I had a video telephone appointment, which was extremely clear and my first one.. So amazing how it worked. I think Dr. and I enjoyed the ease of the communication..No office appointment.. I have done the Cat Scan that he rec. and am waiting for his interpretation of it...
