What People Say About Dr. Dale Bachwich, MD

Dr. Bachwich is an outstanding doctor. He takes the time to talk to you and is never rushing through the appointment. He is very professional and knowledgeable! His staff follows up with him if you have any questions and they get backed to you in a timely manner. I highly recommend him as your GI doctor. He has been my doctor for the last 15 years. FYI - most of the GI doctors are booked out a month or two, so schedule your appointments earlier than later.

Just try making an appointment with this doctor. Good luck on that! I called to make an appointment on September 17. I was told that he wouldn't have an appointment until well into December. Since the appointment person didn't even have the December appointment schedule yet, she wouldn't even make an appointment for me. That is completely ridiculous. I will ask for a different, more accessible doctor from my insurance, Tricare Prime.

Dr. Bachwich is an outstanding doctor who truly cares about his patients. I would not hesitate to recommend him to all my relatives and friends. He takes the time to completely explain any medical issues you may have, and does follow-up phone calls. I highly recommend him.
