Doctor Baktidy was the only doctor to see that he needed to have fluid tapped from his heart, after 1 month and multiple emergency room visits, Dr Baktidy might have saved my husband by looking at a CT scan that other doctors had seen,after going to Northwell Syosset and them sending him home after 6 hours with 2 days pain medicine. We are lucky to have such a caring doctor

I have been a patient of this practice since 2013. I have been seen regularly throughout the years. As of my last appointment on 9/23/2021, I have decided to sever my ties with Dr. Baktidy for the following reason. I had two appointments with Dr. Baktidy plus on appointment for a breathing test in his office over a rececent 2 week period. After being seen in that office 3 times within the prior 2 weeks, I asked for a Flu vaccination while I was there. After waiting to be seen by Dr. Baktidy for over 1 hour, he had the inconsideration to tell me "Not today, I am too busy". I will never go back to that office. I went to Target and within 2 minutes was given the Flu vaccine. Such a lack of respect and consideration for a long time patient is inexcusable. I wish there was an option to leave zero stars. One star is an undeserved gift.

The office staff here is rude and liars. Doctor Baktidy has been my doctor for over twenty years. When I requested to speak with him, the office staff hung up on me and after several attempts to contact the doctor, he has not returned my phone calls. Very incompetent , both the staff and the doctor.

I have been a patient of Dr. Baktidy for several years . The staff is kind , organized and effective . Dr. Baktidy has always shown an interest in my medical condition by asking how I am feeling and how am I dealing with my illness . Truly amazing to have a doctor like this today . I have always felt comfortable with our shared decisions about my care

I am very happy with Dr. Baktidy. I have already recommended him to friends and family. Depending on the insurance company it takes a long time to get Approval for a CT. Still don’t have one. I am sure the office staff will take of this immediately. They are the best.

Dr. B is the best pulmonologist on the Island. Takes time to diagnose properly. I finally got the help i needed, where all the previous doctors failed me.

Dr. Baktidy saved my life & he is still trying to do so today. From teaching me the dangers of COPD & Emphysema, to the dangers of prescription painkiller addiction after surgery, Dr. B. truly shows his ultimate goal is always the wellness of his patient. That is why I'd like to say "thanks" to Dr. B. I've strayed from the painkiller lesson & will need a refresher course but I know in my heart that the good doctor will ALWAYS be there for me, he cares too much not to be. Thanks, Dr. Baktidy. BH
