Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Great - He was very kind, down to earth and didn't rush our appointment at all. Suggested medication changes, which I'm excited to try.

I've had what I would call experiences with docs that were not favorable - Dr Bacon is far from that - Dr Bacon is one of the most thoughtful docs I've had - explaining how in great detail lungs work, how asthma medication works and my best treatment options. No complaints.

Arrogant with a capital A! Pompous with a capital P. Try to relax when you call the office. My average on hold has been 15-20 minutes, then prompted to leave a message.

On first visit, he diagnosed me with COPD without even examining me or reading the referral from my cardiologist. He insisted I don't have asthma without doing the definitive test. He also said that I do not have a growth on my lung which multiple doctors in 3 states have agreed I have backed up by radiology studies.

For the several years since being diagnosed with Severe CNS Sleep Apnea, Dr. Bacon first supported me through a difficult adjustment to the changes in my life required. Ever since 2014, he has been unfailingly kind, professional, alert to problems, etc. Simply a good Doctor! I would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Bacon to anyone needing care in his Specialty.

Dr. Bacon is a rare person: a knowledgeable professional who is both humble AND a good listener. I am a trained listener myself having earned an MSW as a clinical social worker. Dr. Bacon sincerely asked me, "What makes you think that?" regarding my working hypothesis of my my condition and symptoms. He was consciously treating me as a co-equal in our pursuit of better health for me. I am completely impressed.

I've been treated very well by Dr. Bacon and his staff. Dr. Bacon takes the time to listen to and address your concerns thoroughly. He's definitely not a 7 minute insurance doctor. The staff is very courteous and has been very cooperative in helping me reschedule appointments when I've had to miss due to illness and weather. I highly recommend Dr. Bacon.
