Dr. Bhatia was the first Dr. I had when I moved to Staten Island in 1996. He was such a jovial and compassionate man me and my wife fell in love with him and saw him until his retirement. His dedication to saving lives and helping other people was his passport to heaven and we sure will miss him. Such a loving man!
