I saw Evan Bachner twice and both times was mis-diagnosed. The first time I went because I dislocated my right knee playing soccer. He didn't provide a knee brace or crutches (or even sent me to pick them up somewhere else), even after I asked. The second time, I had a grade 3 (fully torn ligament) separated collarbone, and Dr. Bachner said it would heal on it's own. The ER I went to before seeing Dr. Bachner, and a second orthopedic I saw after both confirmed I needed surgery.
Whatever happened to doctors who go through years of medical school because they care about humanity? He epitomizes the lesser reasons for this career choice (i.e. status, greed etc). He comes off arrogant, terse and uses shaming to get his point across, his main point being, " just do as I say!" He prescribed 2 different NSAID's, and his failure to even vaguely listen to me on 2 occasions explaining they were irritating my stomach, has lead to gastric ulcers! Find someone who loves his job!

I respect his experience and training. But my experience with Dr. Bachner was that he was terse, short tempered, impatient, pompous, dismissive of my concerns, and had zero respect for myself and my medical knowledge, as a board certified Veterinary Surgeon. Anatomy is anatomy, after all. I was looking forward to meeting a surgeon or like mindedness, and instead encountered prejudice and dismissal. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.

Dr. Bachner is a professional. He did a knee surgery on me and I was very impressed with his professionalism. He explained everything to me in a way that I could understand. His staff is just as excellent as he is. I was very happy with the outcome. I wish there were more drs. out there like him. I would recommend him to anyone that needed an orthopedic surgeon. Thanks so much for fixing me.

I did not find him to be caring and he had an attitude which made me disgusted. To put it mildly he is in love with himself. I will not go back to him again. I didn't feel he was really interested in my problem. Just a hurried up visit after waiting to see hi for a hour.

Great surgery; very informative about options and procedure.
