Kudos to Dr.Bacharach. He seems to go above and beyond in his efforts to make drug manufacturers extremely profitable. It may create a small discomfort for patients, but you just need to stop and ask yourself , what is a doctor really here for. Keep focused , stay diligent, and one day you will have your just desserts ( chocolate pie ) I hope.

Wait time is horrendous & office staff proceedures are terrible. average wait time is 45min- 1hour. office staff only accept phone calls on a limited basis, they don't take phone calls between 12-2pm. Dr. Bacharach doesn't provide electronic prescription refills; you have to pick up a paper prescription at the office.Bacharach will not take Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance beginning in June.

Dr Bacharach took the time help me understand my disorder and worked with me to cope and manage a disorder that I suffered from for years due to being undiagnosed for more than half my life.

While Dr, Bacharach is a very good psychiatrist, his practice management leaves a lot to be desired. From your first appointment, you will be pleased with Dr. Bacharach's personal interaction as a doctor, but that is the only positive experience you will have. Waiting times for scheduled appointments commonly exceed 45 to 60 minutes no matter what time of day your appointment is scheduled. Dr. Bacharach only issues a paper prescription and he does not call them in or use electronic delivery.

We go to him only because he's the only psychiatrist in our area who accepts our insurance. Expect 1-1 1/2 hour waiting times. Booking your 3 month follow-up will take 4+ months because he doesn't have anything open on his calendar. Passive-aggressive personality. He's OK if he likes you and you are a laid back type of individual. Otherwise, he has trouble remaining professionally detached. Competent as to professional knowledge but I think his personality sometimes gets in the way.

We like his direct and truthful conversation. He is an expert on adolescent psychiatric disorders. My only complaint is that you have to wait TOO long. However, if you call the staff 1/2 hour before your appointment, they'll tell you how late he is running.

Very thorough, spends a lot of time with patients. Practical and to the point. Personable easy manner, and explains concepts and treatments in detail.

HORRIFIC! Stay away from this doctor. Very cold and heartless. Waste of your time. Extremely arrogant, unethical. Very sickening and sad that he is allowed to even practice. He will does not follow through when changing medications or adding new medications. Makes you wonder how many people have been harmed by his poor quality of practice.

Passive-aggressive and generally dismissive of patient complaints, a nightmare to interact with, rude, and exuding an aura of distrust. Casually and repeatedly insulted me throughout the course of our professional relationship. Insisted that I say on medications that caused severe adverse effects. Very hard to get a hold of and constantly late to appointments. Wasted years of my time and an indeterminable amount of money. Would not recommend to anyone. Wouldn't trust him with my child.
