In my estimation Mr Bhardwaj: (1) Is an outstandingly gifted surgeon immensely skilled in his area of expertise. (2) Is able to communicate complicated medical concepts and treatments/surgical pathways in a way that is accessible and understandable to a layperson. (3) Is personable, sensitive, and engaging (both directly and with family) - a matter of some importance, in my view, given the circumstances in which his professional services are called upon. Further, he has the complete confidence (and the admiration) of everyone with whom he deals that I came into contact with while in hospital. Most striking of his observable qualities is Mr Bhardwaj's total - and outstanding - dedication to the care of his patients. My knowledge is direct, he repeatedly and conspicuously put my care above his own convenience and personal interests. Vastly impressive. Speaking personally, given my comparatively serious condition, I could not wish to be - or imagine being - in better hands. Peerless.
