I was lucky enough to be his patient. Dr. Bakst is truly care doctor. Just all his recommendations truly worked for me and he was always happy and proud of all my success with my every appointment. Being always untrustfull person, he change my doubts of trust. All my co-workers, my family, friends, agreed , he did changed my diagnosis. I do not have pre-diabetis diagnosis any longer. On tope of this, I lost some weight . Thank you Dr. Bakst being a really great Specialist.
