Patient Comments (1)
in Sarasota, FL |
There is no timer running to get you in and out of Dr Bakus's office. She spends as much time as needed not just to resolve the immediate problem but to prevent it from happening ever again. Extremely knowledgeable about blending traditional and natural medicines. When following up to review blood test results, she had hand written (before my visit!!) a better explanation of the numerical values on the test results. Then added a written solution to correct some issues that needed attention.
