Dr. Bacchus is amazing! She is very professional and understanding. She actively listens to what I have to say and explains everything in great detail. Although she is not covered under my insurance she is definitely worth it. I was a little nervous seeking help at first but she made me feel very comfortable. I look forward to my sessions with her and I recommend her to anyone looking for a psychiatrist.

I was very lucky to have found Dr. Bacchus when I moved to Los Angeles from Northern California. She does not waste your time by beating around the bushes. She will tell you straight up what your problem is, and what options you have for a good treatment and a better result. She is very very honest and if you are looking for real healing, you need to put aside the feelings and listen to her advice. I have done much better every time I picked this attitude and I have gone worse when I did not!

I didn't know what I was suffering from until I sat down with Dr. Bacchus. Her understanding of the manifestation of mental disorders is excellent and her explanation of how we would go about treatment gave me great comfort. Her approach is straightforward but professional. I would recommend her to anyone needing recommendation for a psychiatrist.

I had tried other psychiatrist but Dr. Baccchus was the only one to thoroughly explain things, help me make an effective care plan, and is so enjoyable. Can’t recommend her enough.

Unprofessional and arrogant. Was uninterested unlistening to who I am. And what my goals are. Spent less than 20 minutes talking with me and charged me for an hour session. Dismissed me and my case

Dr. Bacchus was great for me. Really easy to speak with and helped me realize the issues at hand quickly. I was skeptical about seeking therapy but after speaking with her in one session I saw how it was going to benefit me moving forward. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.
