What People Say About Dr. Michael Baaklini, MD

Dr. Baaklini is a good doctor, but I switched due to long wait times and his wife running the front of the office. She claimed I missed appointments that I never made. I have seen her yelling at staff and even patients. One time I waited over three hours for my appointment (they refused to re-fill my medication unless I stayed). I ended up missing a quiz for a class. Other levels of negligence were present: he never told me about the HPV vaccine, important as a young female, so I didn't receive

Dr baaklini is a very nice man and treated me well. His wife runs the front office and is extremely rude I had to change my primary doctor because of her terrible attitude. They overbook so if you're not the first couple of people in your wait time will be one hour or more everytime.

He is the best doctor. My son was suffering from a bad virus that affect his breathing, his heart, stomach, swelling of his feetand loosing weight. I took him to his regular doctor that did the wrong blood test for him, heart doctor, GI doctor and no one knew how to diagnose his symptoms. As soon as I took him to dr. Michael, he knew right away the kind of virus and gave him the right medication. I would highly recommend him

Long wait. Drs wife is rude & you cannot be seen if you forget your copay. Him & wife yells at staff. Always on vacation or rescheduling appointments. Cannot keep staff for longer than 6months. Will talk on & on but loses focus on topic.

I cannot fathom the other reviews here. Dr. Michael is almost universally loved by his patients. The wait is a little long because when a person sits with him, there is a deep sense of focus and study. His background starting out in busy NYC hospitals means he has seen just about anything and everything. He is always there and always watchful and astute. He saved my life of course with some keen observations of a very complex report.. There is no way I can thank this man. Bill Kelly, Portsmouth

The wait exceeds an hour, sometimes 2 hours plus!Doctor acts like he cares, false reality.Numerous occasions prescribed me meds that have nothing to do with what intended for so started to google what the meds were for before taking them or applying them.Staff does not call to schedule appointments, does not call to notify change & appointments often not in computer. After finding a new doc. got my diagnosis & am feeling excellent. Took only 5yrs for me to realise I was going in circles here.
