Always running behind, never get out of an appt in under 1.5 hours. I don't know what takes so long, she only spends max 5 min with each patient. Outdated knowledge and unfriendly.
in Mansfield, OH |
I never have a good experience with Dr. Bakenhaster. She is always confused, makes many mistakes, there's always a long wait to see her, when she does finally come in she is in a hurry to leave, but bills my medicare very highly for doing little. I am looking for a new doctor.
in Mansfield, OH |
Very poor experience at every visit. Was finally referred to a specialist who said I was actually in pain and didn't need the antidepressants that Bakenhaster was pushing. Extremely long wait to be seen. Constantantly prescribing a new medication, which made sense after seeing all the med reps come and go while waiting in the waiting room.
