I have been treated by Dr Bhargava on two occasions - both have been extremely positive experiences. He is very approachable, he explains all the options available to you and you will never feel forced into a decision. He is on hand if you have further queries following your consultation and provides you with reassurance so you feel as comfortable as is possible before undergoing an operation. In addition I had concerns over how I might scar after the procedure, as I have tendency for my scars to stretch and thicken but with his skill and following his directions for after care my scar is barely visible - so I am truly delighted. I certainly have no hesitation in recommending Dr Barghava
Dr Bhargava is a consummate professional and a genuinely lovely man. His focus was on the quality of my care and my comfort. Through every step of the process I felt like a valued client. He's very good at his job!! He managed to perform procedures on rather sensitive areas of my body and did so in such a way that my discomfort was very much minimised. I'd have no hesitation in calling Dr B in future!
Very clear explanation of problem statement and next steps. Use of technology also helpfully introduced. Prognosis to remove relatively lower risk mole fully supported as was decision to maintain a watch on a left cheek mole which has been in place for a number of years without any noticeable change.
Dr Bhargava is very clear in his explanations and always has a way of putting you at your ease
