I started going to this practice when it used to be Dr. Rosenthals office but under the same name. INNOVA took over his practice and Dr. Bazaco became my doctor. He keeps insisting i have asthma but i am not experiencing any symptoms. He told me to take two medications which i then said i didn't need. I told him i am not taking medication i do not need; he argued with me.

Dr. Bazaco received a chest x-ray showing my father had possible pneumonia and "sat" on that info, no attempt to schedule a urgent office visit, for 21 days. My father showed up for an already scheduled visit and was sent directly to the emergency room and was immediately diagnosed with double pneumonia! This doctor needs to retire! His patients are obviously not his priority.

Dr. Bazaco has been treating and monitoring me for COPD for many years now. He has been unfailingly vigilant, competent and kind. He not only cares for my pulmonary problems but also for my general health. He is one of the best physicians I know and I hope he will continue practicing for as long as he can.

I had a few visits with this dude and i refuse to go visit him again and will never refer anyone to him --his staff is wonderful great people but he is very arrogant,conceited and does not spend time to listen to the patient--its my opinion he is there to make money and not to help patient to get rid of their illness but to suppress the problem so that they will visit him until death.He thinks he is a above everyone--very sad.Stop going to him is the best decision I ever made.
