Dr Bhargava has been superb diagnosing and dealing with a Basel Cell Carcinoma using MOHS surgery. I went to see him specifically because he uses MOHS and I would urge anybody with this to consider somebody who specialises in MOHS. He is kind, patient, easy to talk too, and he is backed up by his practise manager Priya who is also great - communicates and organises brilliantly. I am really pleased with how the MOHS procedure has gone and how minimal the resultant scar is in my case. If you are looking for a dermatologist I would highly recommend Dr Bhargava.
Very helpful, knowledgeable and kind
I have been a patient of Dr Bhargava for a couple of years now and he managed to solve most of my skin related issues. His explanations are very clear and thorough plus he is a true gentleman a the interactions with him are very pleasant.
I felt at all times that I was part of the team treating my condition, not just the material on which people were working. Where there was a choice to be made, every effort was made to allow me the time and information necessary to make decisions.
Excellent dermatologist. Diagnosed with basal cell CA I felt being in excellent hands. Very good explanation of my condition and treatment option. Surgery went smoothly. Nursing team was very friendly too. Excellent post-surgery consultations and the scar is hardly visible.
I was very nervous about the procedure but Dr Bhargava was very friendly and helped calm me down, the scar is also a lot smaller than i thought thanks to the amazing removal.
I had Mohs surgery to my forehead. Dr Bhargava is very professional and caring. I was very well prepared for the procedure in my first consultation. The surgery was very comfortable and Dr Bhargava was very considerate to my needs. The area has healed very well. I would not hesitate to recommend him. He is a excellent and lovely doctor.
Excellent doctor. I have eczema for years and never really had it under control. Since seeing Dr Bhargava, my skin has improved 100% and I am so thankful
I have had the condition for 3 years and seen three specialists. Dr Bhargava is very precise. He gave me a very detailed and clear explanation of my options for treatment that has really helped me decide on the best treatment option for me. Thank you
Dr. Bhargava has been nothing but exceptional and a pleasure to see every month. He has treated me with the highest level of care and his service is unparalleled by any other doctor I have seen before. He has cured my hair loss and made me feel so much better. I cannot recommend Dr Bhargava highly enough for anyone who wants the best care!
I am incredibly pleased with the result. The moles on my face were removed without pain and there is almost no scar or mark from where they were. Amazing thank you
The surgical procedure was painless and efficient and has healed very well. Dr Bhargava explained the process very clearly. It is a pleasure to consult with him.
I am very impressed with Dr Bhargava’s professionalism. I felt very comfortable throughout. As a nurse I can say his surgical skills and care is outstanding and I will recommend him to all my friends and colleagues.
Excellent doctor, highly recommend!
Thank you Dr Kapil for your great care and making the procedure very comfortable for me.
I recently has some cosmetic work done by Dr Bhargava (cosmetic injectables) and I honestly couldn't be happier. He is very much for the natural look which is exactly what I wanted and I feel great. Couldn't be happier with the results. I also had some skin tags removed after pregnancy and again happy with the results.
Extremely fruitful. I am very happy as the medication given to me has been effective and I would say 80 percent better now. I have been asked to carry on using the medication and see Dr Bhargava in six weeks time unless the situation is reversed. He has explained then treatment to me very nicely and makes me feel comfortable. He also gives more time than other consultants I have seen.
My experience with Dr Bhargava was very pleasant, he was very well mannered, sympathetic, gentle and very professional. He found a solution for my skin problem which was going on for many years. In overall i am very very pleased I’ve been to see him and got the positive results.
Five stars. What can DOCTOR BHARGAVA WAS BRILLIANT. HE REMOVED ALL MY FEARS AND DID A FIRST CLASS JOB.
I have seen him on a number of occasions to get some fillers done on the marionette lines on my chin.He explained everything thoroughly and filled me with confidence. I am delighted with the results and feel so much better about myself.I will be seeing him again soon to get some Botox done .Thank you Dr Bhargava!
I have seen Dr. Bhargava on multiple occasions regarding problems relating to hair, skin moles and eczema. He is very generous with his time and insight and explains things in an easy to understand way. His daily skin care programmes and medication recommendations helped me greatly. I found his surgical skill most impressive as he removed a prominent facial mole without leaving a visible scar, when other specialists had advised me that such a procedure would leave a prominent scar. I'm very grateful.
Excellent consultation. I found Dr Bhargava to be both courteous and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend.
I had my mole check done with Dr Bhargava. He was very thorough and reassuring and made me feel at ease. Would definitely recommend
He introduced himself immediately which was calming and he was very personable. He provided infoirmation that I needed and was very helpfully with what would happen next.
Tried it thank you very very much you fill me with confidence
Amazing doctor and really nice man. Really happy with the results
