Dr Bapat and the team at the office are wonderful. Everyone is extremely helpful and courteous. They took time to verify my insurance was accepted and always contacted me when needed. Dr Bapat\'s medical assistant was quick, friendly and thorough and walked me through on how to sign up for the customer portal so I could access my information with ease, and highlighted its functionality. Dr Bapat himself provided impeccable care. he genuinely took the time to explain everything and gave each medical option and the "pros" and "cons" of each. incredibly friendly staff and you feel that everyone is on the same page at the office.
