Ratings for Dr. Volodko Bakowsky
I've been seeing Dr. Bakowsky for almost 10 years now and I'm finally coming to the realization that working with him is a bit like being in an abusive relationship - he diminishes me, discounts my concerns, laughs at me, and when I try to address the issues he brushes it all off. He has changed my diagnosis a few times over the years and never really explained himself to me. As a result, I feel confused about my diagnosis, treatment options, and symptoms. While he certainly seems willing to spend the time with you, he doesn't seem to want to listen to anything that you say that doesn't fit his picture. I left his office in tears this last visit and have finally reached the point where I'd rather risk going without care for my AS than continue to subject myself to his 'care'. I'll be looking for another Rheumatologist.
Like quite a few of the reviewers below, I found him condescending, unhelpful and abrupt. My problem might not be significant to him, but to me it is. He didn't answer my questions, and pretty much walked out on me. Not sure what his problem was.
I am so please to have been seen my this doctor,Just can't believe how much better I feel in only a short time .Easy to talk to and never makes you feel rush or unimportant.
Dr. Bakowsky is warm hearted and caring. He has a great deal of knowledge. The kind of doctor that has one foot always on the earth. Open to what his patient believes...he works with you! I always feel great leaving his office. He has a way about him that makes me feel grateful that he is my doctor. Thank you for having me as a patient Dr. Bakowsky!!!
