Dr. Bacon is great. I'm really glad to finally have a good psychiatrist who works with me. He actually listens tome and does what needs to be done. I've had several surgeries since I started seeing him, and he always made sure I had my prescriptions even if I was unable to get to him. Thanks to Dora, the sweetheart who I have always been able to reach by just a text, my appointments, payments, reminders, everything, is always organized and correct. Would definitely recommend Dr.Bacon to anyone. Thanks, Jenny

I found Dr Bacon on Zocdoc at least 3 years ago. I moved out of state so I had to start all over again basically. I was in desperate need of finding the right psychiatrist after going through 2 others that just didn’t get it! He is an amazing doctor who listens to you and does everything in his power to help you. He doesn’t just give you a prescription and send you on your way. He works with you to figure out the best plan of action and treatment. Not only is he great, his staff is too! His therapist, Debra really knows her stuff. She is real and honest and listening to help you get to the root of your issues. She has helped me a lot when I first started seeing Dr. Bacon! His secretary Dora is a gem! She will help you with appointments, prescriptions and ect... Since I’ve been with him, my life has changed so much for the better!

Dr. Bacon is very compassionate, non-judgemental and was very easy to talk to. He did not force me to be a guinney pig, and has thorouly adressed my issues based on past events. Thank you to him and his office staff for making my transition from another incompetent, crooked office that treated me like a number and not a patient. They had zero concern except for collecting my $. They were very irresponsible with my care. Thank you Dr. Bacon:) I wish I would have found you sooner!!!

Dr. Bacon was courteous and professional. However, the staff had to be the most unprofessional medical team that I've ever encountered. I was quoted one price over the phone and given a completely different price upon arriving. After I paid, I was then told a third time a different price. It was completely appauling and rude to me given that you ask for people to pay in cash only. If this is the case, everyone should be quite knowledgable about the cost.

If you can get past all the scheduling problems the doctor is fine. Also, bring cash. They don't accept checks or credit cards.
