Very pleased with all personnel and facilities. Easy to get around and excellent care.
December 23, 2019
Excellent experience with doctor. He answered all my questions thoroughly.
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.
December 02, 2019
Received very good care.
November 20, 2019
Yeah, enjoy. Dr. Bacharach. He is very down to earth and very in tune. I appreciated the experience so thank you.
November 19, 2019
I was very well pleased with the doctor that came and talked to us. He did a very nice job, and he's a very nice guy. That's all I have to say, and I was I was I'm real happy with his report that he gave me. So, thank you.
November 13, 2019
The time from the appointment being at 1:30 and after seeing the doctor at 3:10 (INAUDIBLE) is excessive.
November 06, 2019
Yeah, I know, I think the whole place was very very good, and the doctor was especially good, and the nurses were very kind. Thank you.
October 22, 2019
I had to wait 3 hours in the waiting in the exam room for Dr. Bacharach, I thought that perhaps I could have been told and other arrangements could have been made or something else. It kept kept being promised till maybe a little bit longer maybe a little bit longer and that's disconcerting.
October 21, 2019
That was a very clean place, very polite, and I recommend them to anybody care was awesome. Okay, that's all great place. Bye.
October 02, 2019
This doctor is very, very professional. Everything ... I can't say anything but good about it, and I've heard good things about him from different people in Pierre and other places. He's operating at a handicap right now because of the tornado that you had recently. I ... I didn't even realize that's what the problem was. I thought that you guys were having construction, cuz I didn't even know you had a tornado. I did, but I forgot. So I would say that this guy is an answer to my prayers; and I think he's very professional and I would be willing to ... I would be willing to be under his care for any type of care, and I've heard nothing but good about him and
October 01, 2019
My visit including tests and consultations went very smoothly and in a timely matter.
September 17, 2019
Yes, I was very satisfied with my experience. I hope I push the right buttons on the last question.
September 17, 2019
We're very happy with the way we got checked in right away, but it just took forever. Now., we realize that there was a tornado and stuff, you were behind and trying to get caught up, so, but we did set there for over 2 hours in the exam room.
August 19, 2019
They were a little slow because they were busy, okay, that's all I got to say. I thought they were very polite and all
August 14, 2019
Yes, I was very satisfied with the visit with Dr. Bacharach and I learned quite a bit that visit and he was very thorough and explaining things to me. Then I'd highly recommend him. So I was very satisfied and it's been one of the visit best visits I've had with him. So I would I was very satisfied when I'm up there with thank you very much. Thank you. Bye.
August 13, 2019
All together positive experience and excellent health care professionals. Made my test, exam and my appointment smooth and comfortable. Thank you
August 13, 2019
Very well run place.
August 13, 2019
I thought the waiting was too long, too long time, and another thing they didn't let me know about my cancellation that I was supposed to have another, another visit with the doctor, and that was canceled, and they didn't let me know. Okay. Bye.
July 30, 2019
Everything was good so far The stenting is yet to come Let's hope that goes just as well
July 29, 2019
Great place; great doctors; great experience.
July 24, 2019
Everyone was very kind and very professional and I love the doctor. He was cool. He was informative. He looked at me in the eye. He didn't look up he didn't look down. He looked at me he talked to me. I thought it was wonderful. He's wonderful. Your facility is wonderful. I'm a happy camper.
July 16, 2019
I think that everything that was done was wonderful. I can't wait util next week when I have my procedure done and everything, so far everything has been great. Thank you.
July 11, 2019
I appreciate him taking the time to see me when he already had a full schedule.
July 10, 2019
We had to wait a considerable time (2 hours +) for this appointment due to what we were told was the Dr. being called back into a surgery. I would suggest that in the future you try to have the physicians available for scheduled clinic visits by having specific days for surgeries and other days for clinic visits. That would help to eliminate the need to be called back to a surgery and making people wait so long for a scheduled visit. I do understand that emergencies occur, but planning could help minimize the experience that we had.
July 09, 2019
I think that there is nothing I would improve.
July 08, 2019
Everything was perfect.
July 08, 2019
I enjoyed Dr. Bacharach's visit very much, he was very informative, and listened, and felt very good about him. Thank you again.
July 08, 2019
I do not think I got any help at all at your Heart Hospital at all. I sat in the office for dang near 2 hours waiting on the doctor to come in and see me and everything. I think that was really wrong for that. And I was late for my other appointment.
June 14, 2019
Dr. Bacharach, Jill are the absolute best. I would highly recommend NCH to everyone. Admitting staff, ultrasound staff were all great. No wonder you are a five star facility!!
June 04, 2019
I was very satisfied with the results with Dr. Bacharach.
May 28, 2019
My experience at North Central heart was very well received, was very well taken care of by the entire staff, and I will highly recommend North Central Heart to anybody that asked about it. Thank you.
May 22, 2019
I just had a tremendous. I just think the place is tremendous. People are just fabulous and and they just worried about you and take care of you and I would never go to another place.
May 20, 2019
I'm sorry, but I didn't get the part with the with the 10 how good, you know - 10 was the highest and I guess I missed punched the number or something. I'm sorry. That's all I have. I'm finished now.
May 13, 2019
Yeah, they never called me back on my CAT scan, and they never told me when my next appointment is. It was supposed to be 3 weeks from now. That's the only part I'm really disappointed in. Thank you.
May 01, 2019
Done very good.
April 30, 2019
All the staff was very professional, courteous, and made my visit very pleasant
April 09, 2019
Dr. Need to be on time for the appointment. Our time is important also. He was 1 & half hour late.
April 08, 2019
My experience down there at your facility at the north central Heart Hospital was outstanding. Everybody that was there all the staff the doctors. Everybody was just tremendous and I watched how they treated everybody else too and I'll tell you what, it's top notch, so I don't know how much better you can get but I think you're already there. So, thank you very much.
April 08, 2019
I would say I would like to have a little more closeness in time, I think we waited at least 2 hours, and we thought that was unacceptable. Otherwise, everything else was fine. Thank you.
March 26, 2019
Excellent experience! Did not wait long to get in. And I felt like Dr.bacharach gave me my life back just by the things he said nd his honest calm demeanor. I was referred to him by my cousin.
March 19, 2019
Thank you Jill, his nurse!
March 13, 2019
Your facility is great. Your doctors and all the staff, and everyone associated with the place is wonderful, and we are so lucky to have this facility available to us in the surrounding area. Keep up the good work. And it it's great, everything is wonderful. Thank you so much.
March 12, 2019
The staff was tremendously great with us. We've been there before with my husband. That's why we came back for myself, very appreciative of the work that's done over there. Very very happy with it. Thank you.
March 07, 2019
Yes, I would like to know the results of my heart test. I have not heard anything from the provider, or the nurse, or the doctor, whatever, and kind of anxious to know what they found out, and I think I was told I would be notified like yesterday, but I never received any information. So I would like to get that information.
