Finding the right "match" with a doctor isn't always easy, so I feel extra fortunate to have found Dr Bacchus over 10 years ago, and for the consistent focus she always gives.
Los Angeles, CA |
Some people would benefit greatly from Dr. Bacchus. She's smart and knows her stuff. That was the problem for me, however. Very arrogant and condescending - thought she knew everything, and shut down my experiences as invalid possibilities. Also never clearly remembered what we had discussed from session to session, and switched around medications very carelessly at times. It was a very poor experience for me and made me worse. Every appointment left me with more questions than answers.

There should be some type of immediate confirmation that an appointment is accepted. The system can be possibly tied to the doctor's schedule.

Very caring and takes the time to ask all of the questions that a psych should.

Dr Bacchus is kind and efficient. She has great bed side manner, is focused on delivering results and is an expert in pharmacology. I highly recommend Dr Bacchus.

Gave my granddaughter wrong diagnoses.thank goodness we went to two other psychiatrist who agreed with the 3 hours testing she had by a competent psychologist. Dr made up her mind because of some absurd conclusion she had before even seeing the patient. I had extreme difficulty getting to talk to a staff member, prior to making the appointent, and called several times, hoping to finallyreachn someone. Because of that she diagnosed me as bipolar. How absurd, also diagnosed my son as bipolar.
