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.

I feel that Dr. Bakal and her staff don't value their patients - I live an hour and ten minutes away - I called their office and had to leave a message, so I left a message to tell them I was running about 20 minutes late and to call me if they needed to, which gave them an hour and ten minutes to retrieve my message and call me back - they did not call and when I arrived they told me Dr. Bakal said she couldn't see me because they had a ten minute rule - being a Dr. myself, I value my patients

Dr. Bakal is a fantastic Pulmonologist. She is extremely knowledgeable, humble, thoughtful, sweet, and compassionate doctor with outstanding bedside manners. Dr. Bakal listens with a clear professional interest in helping her patients through thick and thin. I am always treated with respect, care and professionalism anytime I call or go in for an appointment especially by Wadoo at the Livingston location. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a pulmonologist.
