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

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.
February 18, 2019
I could not ask for better doctors,nurses and care then I have received at North Central Heart
February 04, 2019
I'm just telling you that when I was there for my appointment the other day everybody from the people who had to put down the record stuff when you come in and your cards and all that busy work to Dr. Bacharach. They were all very helpful answered all my questions, and I really appreciate it. Thank you.
January 30, 2019
Great experience! Was really impressed our doctor was able to do surgery right away as he understood the urgency of our concerns. Very pleased with our experience!
January 30, 2019
When I talked to the doctor it was Wednesday, and I talked to him and then the guy that was training with them and they were really good me explain things to me and answer my questions. So it was a good. A very good way that that was put across and everything was told to me.
January 29, 2019
Only waiting for a long time in the waiting room for a doctor That's it.
January 23, 2019
I would just say it was a timely appointment on time. Everything went well and I felt very good after it that that I've been my needs a been met and I'll course I have some further work to do but It was a good appointment. Thank you.
January 23, 2019
Tell you what, you know, Dr. Bacharach was a very fine surgeon, he told me what I needed to know. There was a gentleman with him from - obviously from another organization, learning and he told him exactly what I needed to know, and was very very informational - approved. And I think it was a great opportunity for the young man to learn a lot of things from the good doctor. Thank you.
January 22, 2019
Everything went super smooth Dr. Bacharach my first time meeting him super kind caring interested in my concerns and helping me with getting the results I need, an amazing excellent experience. Thank you.
January 16, 2019
I was very happy with everything you happen when I was there. You were very all courteous. Everything went very well. I highly recommend you to anybody. Thank you.
January 15, 2019
Yes I am not the patient. I'm his sister-in-law and all calls go through with me but I was with him along with his other sister-in-law and his brother and we all visited with Dr. Bacharach and we had a very good experience all 4 of us but he was very thorough and I liked him very much so I just wanted him to know it isn't the patient that gave the survey but I'm sure that's how he felt. Thank you.
January 14, 2019
Hi, he did a real good job with me. I like Dr. Bacharach very well. We seem to get along very well. He's done tremendous job and helping me. I just I'm very appreciative to the help that he's given me. Thank you.
January 08, 2019
When we arrived, we stopped at the door and registered with that lady and then we sat down and waited for an hour and a half and it was because nobody told the girl who was doing the test that we were there. That was really uncomfortable. That's all I have to say. Thank you. Bye.
December 17, 2018
I had you did a wonderful job on me so I will always thank them for that and so this is what I got to say about him. He's a wonderful doctor. Thank you. Bye.
