Lost time between the tests and time I saw the doctor Dr. Bacharach. I think I had two hour wait, and that's a long time to wait. Thank you.
September 06, 2022
Dr. Bacharach was absolutely amazing (INAUDIBLE) welcoming for myself and my family and very grateful for his care. Yeah. So thank you. Goodbye.
August 22, 2022
Everyone was very kind.

Appt was at noon, still sitting in waiting room at 12:20. A 2 hr Appt ended up 4 hrs. We were to have an hour meeting with the heart failure team, then an hour for lunch before a 2pm Appt with Dr. Bacharach. Didn't get to see him until 4:00 pm. I had to find someone to tell them we were still waiting. Didn't get to leave for lunch, so we were starved by the time we left.
August 18, 2022
Very happy with Dr. Bacharach.
July 28, 2022
I was impressed with the whole experience. Everyone was so kind and helpful.
July 27, 2022
Yeah, be on schedule. Have you come an hour early and and sit there for an hour. You can be more per session time. I didn't appreciate that. My time is worth something too.
July 25, 2022
Family has been treated there many times. Good place!
July 11, 2022
Communication is extremely important talk to the patient and not the husband.
July 06, 2022
Everything was fine for the care and I got the answers that I wanted, but I went in at 1:30 and I didn't leave until quarter to 5. I spent probably 15 minutes with a vascular testing and I probably spent 10 minutes maybe 15 minutes with the physician. So that would be a half hour out of all that time. All the other time was waiting time and that was frustrating.

Really excellent staff and service. I feel very confident in my cardiac care at this facility.
June 09, 2022
ultrasound scheduled for 1:15 but had to go to the desk to say i was waiting longer than 20 minutes. Dr appointment was for 2:30 did not actually see the doctor until 4 pm. It would have been nice to be informed that they were running very late.
June 09, 2022
We waited for 2 1/2 hours and none of the staff made any effort to let us know about the delay even after I made 2 attempts to find out what is going on
May 18, 2022
I'd like to say Dr. Bacharach was very insightful and I ... I got all the information I needed and I really appreciate what he does.
May 16, 2022
Yes, I told I had a good visit, but I had to wait too long for the doctor. But part of it is probably my fault. I didn't I had an appointment at 23rd and I went in to change it yesterday and ask them if they can get me in
May 16, 2022
I thought that the doctor was very good. He answered my questions the nurse, however, I think she needs some training on clogged arteries and what the side effects might might be. That's all. Thank you. Bye.
April 25, 2022
I was impressed with the over all experience. Also, nurses were kind, knowledgable, prompt and courtious.
April 13, 2022
The beds in the guest house are too high. My husband had to build steps so I could get into bed. The bed was too hard also. I woke up at 3 am and my back was so sore, I couldn't move. I had to sleep in the recliner. The toilet only had bars on the left side and I needed it to be on the right.
April 11, 2022
Answered all my questions and made feel good about myself.Gave me some good advice that I agreed with
March 23, 2022
When we arrived, we had to wait quite a while before we were able to see the doctor, he was on call at other things that we're going on as the only problem we have with a visit.
March 21, 2022
Entire staff that I dealt with was extremely nice and respectful to me. I wish to thank all.
March 14, 2022
Dr. Bacharach and his nurse Jill, were excellent. They knew what they were talking about. They were kind to me, and I couldn't ask for a better experience. So thank you very much to, and they were very careful about the urgency of my situation. Thank you.
March 02, 2022
My appointment was last Wednesday and I still have not heard the results from the Echocardiogram that was taken.
February 17, 2022
I had a good time. I mean everybody treated me fine, I'm well pleased with it. I don't know what I'm supposed to do next, which I think you said a key.
February 16, 2022
We totally understand having to wait because the Dr went into an emergency surgery, but waiting in the waiting room for 3 hrs, we had to listen to the receptionist calling for appointments.
February 16, 2022
I find the Heart Hospital does not seem to care about patients' time. To have to wait for more than an hour for my appointment tells me scheduling was not done properly. I did not even see the doctor not did anyone follow up about rescheduling.
February 14, 2022
Thank you for getting me in on short notice. It is a great relief to know it isn't my heart causing this pain.
February 08, 2022
I did have my test yesterday and after the testing is over, all the people that talked to me Kelly was one that was doctor, I guess she's a PA and the people before her, it was a nurse. Everybody was very good to me, to listen and answer my questions as well. And so, I think that was pretty good. It was only one thing that bothers me a lot was when I came in. I was just sitting waiting for the appointment and I believe a nurse came out to get me and she was very rude and she took off and walked a mile ahead of me. I'm on Walker and walked a mile ahead of me and I could keep up with a buddy just about, but
February 07, 2022
I had very good service from the nurses and the doctors, I thank them very much. Bye.
January 31, 2022
I tell you all did a perfect job everybody I ran into at the facility was fantastic. Bacharach was superb.
January 25, 2022
Dr. Bacharach was very kind and easy to talk with. He understood my situation and explained everything very well. He is a phenomenal physician and person!
January 21, 2022
It was a good learning experience
January 18, 2022
I was very pleased with the service I got. I think it was professional and I would definitely recommend it to others. Thank you.
January 03, 2022
Doctor was great, the wait it was just a little bit too long.
January 03, 2022
Both of the ladies that I talked to before I met the doctor were very nice, that was outside the office and the two that came in during at the inside the office, were good also, and the doctor was very nice and very helpful.
December 20, 2021
I was very pleased with my whole experience. Coming to Sioux Falls, it was very hard to me. I've never gone out of town for care before. It was absolutely wonderful, I received good care, they listened to me. I'm very pleased, and I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Thank you very much.
December 09, 2021
Well. I was just, I was just, I guess I was just lucky that that they, that I could get in there to, to see him and stuff. So I can, you know, put my mind at ease, what's going on with me and hopefully we can get it fixed and, and we'll go on to life. Okay. Thanks. Bye.
December 08, 2021
The experience was good, except I had to wait 45 minutes past my schedule time, in the examining room, before the doctor showed up. That was far too long.
November 30, 2021
Everyone was very kind and courteous and knowledgeable.
November 29, 2021
The improvement could be that when you're scheduled to see a doctor, and you probably know, he probably knows what tests that they'll want to run, but the schedulers don't schedule you that until after you see the doctor, and then it might be hours to wait before the testing that he might require. So it would help if they would schedule the testing closer to the time of seeing the doctor, so people aren't waiting and waiting for, for the testing. I have been coming back to do one of the tests because it was going to be too long of a wait.
November 29, 2021
I felt the doctor was very knowledgeable. He explained things in a way that it was very easily understood, by myself and my daughter. I was I was very impressed with the care I received at this facility.
November 10, 2021
The wait period was very long. He was behind but nobody came out to tell us that. We have to go to the desk and tell them it would be a good idea that if he's behind, they look up his patients and let them know so that they're not sitting there worrying or you know getting antsy about not being in on time people were friendly and I like that and it was it was an okay experience. But, you know, just those little things. Thank you.
September 15, 2021
Seems like the procedure on the blockage of the veins to the leg could have been done a lot sooner
September 15, 2021
I (we) hated the over three hr wait for the Dr. but understand these things do happen.
August 24, 2021
I'm extremely pleased with my visit. I believe Dr. Bacharach showed genuine interest in my condition and answered all of my questions concisely. And that's it. Thank you.
August 23, 2021
This is an exemplary facility. I would recommend it to anyone. In fact, I have several times. But I felt that the doctor listened to my family more than he listened to me and I was kind of upset about that. However, he listened, he was right on with what he told me and I look forward to coming down and having more experiences with this doctor. And I am so thankful that facility is there. Thank you.
August 10, 2021
Thank you
August 10, 2021
My experience was good completely, and I would recommend this doctor and the heart facility to anybody, to all of my friends that might need to be there.
August 04, 2021
I was very impressed with the knowledge of Dr.Bacharach and his bed side manner, so to speak. He answered all of my questions and provided me with the information. I needed. I have a great amount respect with him.
July 28, 2021
I think the man made things really comfortable for me and very easy to understand. He is a great doctor probably and a gentleman and I don't know what else I can say. So, thank you.
July 20, 2021
The staff was very friendly and helpful. They kept me informed about everything in a timely manner, and were just plain super!!! Every person I had contact with was very professional, and I even had a father/daughter team's care..... that doesn't happen every day. Thank you for the supreme care. We appreciate y'all.
July 20, 2021
NCH is a clinic of competence and excellent patient care. I recommend it to anyone who needs cardiac care. Thank you for all you do for people in need of your care. You are appreciated!
June 28, 2021
Quick response from medical team. All questions answered.
June 02, 2021
We have been here multiple times and have always received the best care. All staff are friendly and truly compassionate. I m impressed at the efficiency of the hospital and staff. Nurse Sue that took care of my husband for his cardiac cath earlier this month was absolutely amazing. She truly is an asset to your facility. This visit was his TAVR. And, again, the nurses that took care of him, physicians, CRNA, housekeeping....EVERYONE deserves kudos. Thank u for making a potentially scary event such a positive experience for us.
May 18, 2021
The the testing was very efficient and very kind. I wish there was too much a lot of way I could have it was hard to wait so long between testing an appointment and that doctor Dr. Bacharach would spend just a little more time with me at the end.
April 27, 2021
Doctor was very good, very understandable really liked him.
