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.

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.
December 06, 2018
It was a big improvement over another healthcare facility I went to prior.
December 05, 2018
After spending a lot of time in and out of the hospital I think it is the best in the midwest bar none
December 04, 2018
the hospital is very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful.
December 04, 2018
Yes, I felt very comfortable, and I'm completely confident that I get the best medical care possible. Thank you much. Bye.
December 03, 2018
Number one, it's good to have closer vision on people with car trouble and getting to go where they need to go. Also, need better parking space for handicap people for the apartment. Thank you. Bye.
November 14, 2018
Yes, I have been so impressed with North Central Heart, and there isn't one person out there that I haven't met that I just think that they're the very best. So I just want you to know that any person that has done anything with me as a, a patient there I am just very pleased.
November 13, 2018
Yes, I have high regards for all the doctors out there that work with me. And anyway, I really learned a lot from the Dr. Bacharach.

We are lucky to have north central heart and the heart hospital so close with the quality doctors and staff
September 11, 2018
In all of the years, that I have been on Warfarin, I have never had anyone explain the vitamin K relationship with antibiotics. The doctor had a good way of explaining things. I had met him at a previous hospital stay, some years ago. I would recommend him.
September 10, 2018
He speaks calmly and clearly, we felt he had my husband's condition under control and we felt taken care of and assured the condition was manageable,and would be handled by a team of professionals.
August 22, 2018
He was thoughtful & tried to do what was best for my good health.

Dr. Bacharach was very easy to talk to, put you at ease the moment he walked into the exam room. Very down to earth, but very assuring and personable.
