Dr. Bazzi is very flexible with scheduling and understanding about needing to reschedule or cancel appointments. She’s very timely and is rarely late. Once in a session she’s is a very good listener and spends up to an hour with a patient, and never makes you feel like she wants to be somewhere else.

Dr. Bazzi is professional, personable and compassionate. I didn't have to wait for my appointment which is very important to me with my busy schedule. When it came to talking medications, she really listened to my preferences and she took my lifestyle and desires into account. I felt like she was very present in our session and she didnt make me feel like she was watching the clock. She was readily available to me between appointments and was flexible when it came to scheduling.
