Bakersfield, CA |
Dr. Bichai rescheduled my appointment 3 different times in a two week period. When I was finally able to come in, I waited over 6 hours to see him. During the exam, he was very uninterested in me or my medical issues. He was constantly on his phone, taking calls and texting, and walking in and out to talk to his staff about other patients. It was a horrible experience.

JUST AWFUL my appointment was scheduled at 4pm and they took till near 8pm to see me. This is ridiculous. People who came after me were seen before me. When sitting for a long time my back pain is outrages and i couldn't stand my back after i left here. They shouldn't schedule so many appointments or take so many walk ins if they know they already have more than they can handle, they're probably just trying to make more money. The waiting room is also freezing cold which didn't help my back.

Always easy scheduling appointments, don't have to wait 45 days for an appointment. Dr. Is interested in patients and spends time getting all the facts about their health. Best doctor I have been to in 20 years. Reminds me of an old school drs office when it comes to seeing the Dr and calling with questions
