Reviews

October 14, 2020
Waited extremely too long. I was at that clinic for 4 hours. That's ridiculous.
September 23, 2020
I was very impressed with him. He explained everything thoroughly that it was easy to understand. I'd recommended to anybody.
September 23, 2020
I had a really good time there. I was actually impressed with the doctors knowledge and his nurse was also very very great and covered everything beforehand.
September 23, 2020
My appointment was at 1:45 I had. An ultrasound on my arm done by 2:15 and did not see the doctor until after 4:00.
September 21, 2020
I was very satisfied with all the service I received no. No complaints whatsoever.
August 17, 2020
I would like to thank Dr. Bacharach for all he's done for me. Thank you very much.
August 12, 2020
Dr. Bacharach and his team make me feel very secure and explaining things when I am nervous and I really appreciate that.
August 11, 2020
Everyone was very kind and helpful.
August 05, 2020
I think that you have a very wonderfully run facility. The people are very nice and kind and seem to be good at what they do from the receptionist to the registration to the nurses. Every one of them was very, very good at what they were doing. My only complaint was how long my wait was to see the doctor. I had a 1:30 appointment. I was told to be back at 1 for that appointment and I was not seen until 3 o'clock or about 5 minutes to 3. I think that 2 hours to wait is too long for wait.
August 04, 2020
My family doc sent me here due to pain in lower leg and a protruding vein. I wondered if I should see a vein specialist for vericose vein pain. This physician did not recommend that. He did recommend compression stockings.
August 03, 2020
The appointment time was right on schedule, that I liked the most
July 29, 2020
Dr. Bacharach and Robin were extremely helpful in helping me decide how to how to get a aorta, aorta valve replaced and without them, I may well have made a poor decision. So, I'm very pleased with the amount of time they spent and the amount of detail they gave us to make a decision. Thank you very much.
July 15, 2020
Yeah, my experience there the other day, was the best I've ever had. Doctor knew everything. He listened to that both of us and I highly recommend him. He's really good and the nurse too. So, I mean it was good. Really appreciated it. Thank you.
July 15, 2020
The doctor was fabulous, and I really appreciated him. What I didn't I appreciate was happy to wait and it took almost an hour before he was in the room with me, and that's not acceptable. You guys need to reschedule or figure something else out. Thanks.
June 29, 2020
I think everything went great. Appreciate all your work and thanks a lot.
June 24, 2020
I think the times that you set an appointment then that's the time that they should see the patient instead of waiting 45 minutes to an hour. That's it.
June 23, 2020
We are so thankful for Dr. Bacharach. He was not only very knowledgeable, but he is a very kind and caring person which is important to us as we go through issues I felt that he really heard what we were saying Thank you.
June 17, 2020
Well, I'd like to know what the result of the examination was, been waiting for the answer what the result is of the Carotid artery test is. So call me back sometime, okay?
June 15, 2020
Yes they were very, very good and kind to me and my sister. Thank you.
June 09, 2020
Everything is fine. I'm not having problems with it. Thank you.
June 08, 2020
They did very good to me, explained everything real good, told me my options, what I could do, what i cant do, and I agreed everything with him. He's a very good doctor. I recommend anybody. Thank you.
June 08, 2020
Dr. Bacharach is very comforting and well assured me about my health problems - and so I would definitely recommend him to others that have the same health problems I do. I so appreciate finding him, and I'm glad I saw him on the news. Bye.
June 08, 2020
Yes, I thought everything was done very timely and efficiently. I especially like the doctor and how he explain things. Thank you. Bye bye.
June 02, 2020
I just felt my experience here was just outstanding I mean, I knew what I was going to do and and healthy to a certain extent I'm old, but I'm healthy. I would recommend it to anybody, so.
June 02, 2020
Echocardiogram was 30 to forty minutes late. causing a longer wait for the Dr. appointment.
June 02, 2020
Yes having this doctor as a as a doctor makes me feel real comfortable and and I feel like he's one of the best people I've ever dealt with as far as medicine is concerned. So I'm very happy, very pleased and and I feel very good about going to him as a doctor. Thank you.
May 26, 2020
Dr. Bacharach was generally pleasant but was willfully uninformed about the reason for which I had been referred to him. He showed an extreme lack of understanding of the concerns raised by the referring physician and added absolutely nothing of significance to my care. I would never trust anyone I know to receive their care from him and I will never returned to the facility to be evaluated by any physician in his group. I will choose to go to the Mayo Clinic or another facility where their physicians who can actually read the referral note before they come into the room and see me.
May 20, 2020
I was real happy with the doctor. I thought he's done a real good job, and I was explained everything and I was real happy.
May 18, 2020
I would like to know if my veins will be checked also in my heart. That's what I would like to know. Thank you.
April 01, 2020
I waited there a total of 3 hours for a 10 minute appointment. Wait time is ridiculous
March 25, 2020
They both Dr. Bacharach and his nurse were very receptive. I was very pleased with both of them and I would recommend them highly to anyone that may have a corroded artillery or a vascular problem. Thank you.
March 24, 2020
Staff was very friendly and respected your needs.
March 23, 2020
My provider is willing to helping me get to the bottom of my health issue. This has give me peace of mind.
March 18, 2020
The nurse at my facility was very rude, and I had to wait over an hour to see my physician.
February 26, 2020
There was someone who took my blood pressure, which I felt was extremely high. I never heard another word about it. I think you have someone taking blood pressure's out there who is not doing it accurately. I've had the same person before and when we looked into it this I had a second person take the blood pressure and get a completely different reading. So I've had questions about that since I left there if it was that high wasn't brought up again. Why wasn't it wrote up again or what incorrectly done and if it was why wasn't it checked.
February 19, 2020
Well, I was impressed with what we got. It's a little scary because at my age. I do have some flip flop going on yet and I'm afraid of the flu. So I pretty much quarantined myself at home. I went to emergency yesterday, but they were so busy too. They did a good job. I got my breathing was bad. So other than that, I think that there was his name. I think they did okay. And I hope he's alright special have no problems for 6 months. So other than that, I think everything went well. Thank you.
February 18, 2020
Everything was fine. I was satisfied with everything.
February 04, 2020
I was most impressed with Dr. Bacharach sincerity and his honest opinion. I thought he was a great doctor and I would definitely go back to him.
February 03, 2020
They couldn't have done any better. They did just super down there at the Heart Hospital. I don't know what I was supposed to press, now.
January 29, 2020
My experience for the first time dealing with a heart specialist, Dr. Bacharach, everything was just very, very good. Very good. I felt comfortable. Everybody was so nice, and I think ... appreciate ... I really appreciate having to go to Dr. Bacharach for the problem that I have. Thank you guys for everything. Good night.
January 22, 2020
You did real well, the whole experience was great. So, thank you.
January 13, 2020
Very pleased with all personnel and facilities. Easy to get around and excellent care.
January 02, 2020
I think I have to respond to that question - things went very well. I appreciate the concern and the timeliness of my appointment. So it went very well. Thank you. I think that's it.
December 23, 2019
Excellent experience with doctor. He answered all my questions thoroughly.
December 16, 2019
Only thing I didn't like. We went with Dr. Bacharach, it was supposed to be at 2:30. We didn't meet with him til 4:15. So it killed a whole day. I realize it's this time of year and that you're extremely busy. But that's my only complaint.
December 16, 2019
My care was the best I pressed the button too soon to realized what's number was supposed to be pushed to say the best, but I had the best care. Okay, that's it.
December 04, 2019
Well, I said got a lot of help from everybody that was there and I plan on making another appointment to come back and see him. It's good as good as the weather is going to last so and I appreciate all the help from there and I'm glad I come out that way. Thank you.
