As with most doctors if you are prepared with a clear explanation and prompt questions you will have a better experience with the Doctor. He has always had time for us, has answered questions fully and patiently. I also like his practice of offering more than one option in medication. As he says he's not a shrink he just fixes your drug issues. And at this he is the most knowledgeable there is. I 'm thankful we've had him see us. If he's a bit abrupt suck it up and say thanks for the knowledge. My only complaint would be we really need him now but he's nowwhere to be found.
Dr. Bakish is the worst psychiatrist ever. You cannot make a proper diagnosis in 10 minutes as Bakish tried with me too. I can say this because the next psychiatrist completely reversed Bakish's diagnosis saying there was NOTHING wrong with me except some bad life events and physical ailments and this was after spending 3 hours with me and an hour with my husband. Dr. Backish's ego does not like to be disagreed with because I indeed disagreed with him for 10 minutes unsuccessfully. I took his pills and the result was disastrous and I should have sued him. Avoid this psychiatrist you could be misdiagnosed with serious consequences or at least get a second opinion.
Dr. Bakish diagnosed me after a few minutes-and it was the wrong diagnosis. (he asked me what my favourite fruit and colour were!) Was prescribed a cocktail of drugs I did not need. The drugs aggravated my condition. Fortunately, someone got it right a couple years later!
Dr. Bakish is more than just a wonderful and caring man, he's quite simply saved my life. After over 12 years, he finally gave me some much needed answers! In a short period of time he was able to diagnose me and give me answers that no other doctor has been able to. Just by his diagnoses I felt that a HUGE weight was lifted off my shoulders......thank you dr.bakish, you are a God send!
