"Dr Bhayani is the most compassionate doctor I have ever met! All through my journey with stomach cancer he answered all of my questions and never rushed me. He is a good listener and explains everything so you understand it. I had a rare type of hereditary cancer and he had a good understanding of it before he met me, and now is a pro after all my I would recommend him to everyone that needs any kind of gastric surgery! He is also an expert in laparoscopic surgery. He saved my life!!"
