Dr Bapat has done wonders for my son\'s health. During my visit he took the time to discuss and explain everything without rushing me. We drive a little over an hour from Oklahoma - wouldn\'t want any other doctor!

He came up with a course to try to determine rule out a reason for an ongoing problem when my previous doctor just shrugged his shoulders. Dr. Bapat discussed all my options and explained them completely.
