Verified Patient Reviews
Knowledgeable, good communicator.
I was immediately impressed with the efficiency and competency of his front desk staff and Dr. Bakal's concern for my visit and how I was feeling. He actually listened to me and immediately took action to help me. I was shocked. Never in my life have I had a doctor respond so swiftly to my requests and problems. The best urologist I have ever seen.
Quite competent and knowledgeable.
Very professional, very nice details involve all health issue.
Felt rushed. The doctor spoke over me. He kept repeating himself and didn't listen well.
The most organized office i've ever been. i came in and saw the doctor in 5 minutes. Amazing!
I felt like he was pretty dismissive of my concerns. I left feeling more uneasy than when I walked in. I ended up going to another doctor who made me feel much more comfortable with the pain I was having, why I was having it, and what the next steps should be.
may not see him again. will see another urologist.
He was business-like yet pleasant, answered my questions and showed a diagram on his computer screen when I asked for a specific description of an anatomical structure/function. Also gave me a sample medication package and verbal instructions. I'll have a more thorough review after my follow-up visit next month.
Not really sure i will be returning
Doctor Bakal is an excellent and knowledgeable person. I was pretty impressed and would definitely recommend this doctor for urological matters. He is straightforward and comes up with a plan for medical problems. I'm happy and satisfied to have found him.
Dr Bakal, is like what I read in the reviews..besides being friendly, he showed confidence, and made me feel very comfortbale. He is a smart man who understands his patient, and kind enough to schedule our next appointment on my convinience !! I did go before my appointment was scheduled, and he did see me before my time had come up, so I didnt have to wait...Waiting for a doctor is the least I think about. I definetely recommend Dr Bakal !!!
he a very kind Dr.
He was very professional and helpful.
I came to see the doctor on my lunch break and they were running a few minutes behind, but were very courteous and they squeezed me in when I let them know of my time constraints. VERY polite front office staff, checking in was easy. The doctor was very kind and answered all my questions clearly and without rushing me. He ordered the tests that were necessary, he was even nice enough to draw my blood in the office so I wouldn't have to try to hunt for an outside facility when I let him know that is what I preferred. I definitely recommend this physician.
Doctor Ron Bakal was very professional, polite and knowledgeable. He really knows what he talks about. He listened very professionally and addressed to my chief complain. I got answers for all my additional questions. Strongly recommend you Dr Ron.
It was pretty straight forward, doctor was patient and listened to everything I told him. Would go again if needed.
Compared to my other urologist where I waited for at least 45 minutes before I was seen by the doctor, with Dr Bakal I was done in 29 minutes (that included scheduling for the next visit). That shows efficiency of the staff and Dr Bakal was very helpful and provided medications and tips that I didnt get from my other urologist.
Only complaint is the wait
Very pleasurable experience with Dr. Bakal. Professional, thorough, with great bedside manors. My go to Urologist.
Very professional,ask me about my problems and addressed them to my satisfaction-office staff were courteous and professional-will go back again if needed--reccomend him to others-BUpton
First appointment. Appears very competent. He changed my medication and scheduled a follow-up appointment after a more than thorough examination.
It was real brief, at this point I am a new patient and he is just getting started on knowing my history. He did advise I take some prescribed pills as a control to determine if my situation gets worse. So I feel he was making an effort to make sure it was not more grave. I will continue seeing this doctor.
Very professional and direct to the point
Ron is a real pro. I've always been seen quickly. I highly recommend.
Dr. Bakal and his staff were very efficient and helpful AND NICE. He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Would not hesitate to come again.
Very professional, tell-it-like-it-is type of doctor. I really liked Ron and have a lot of confidence in him.
Dr. Bakal was very effective as what I would term a "transactional" doctor. It was very business like. No frills. I think that this is a very important quality in a doctor. However, given that I was a little uneasy about the issue I was having, I found his demeanor a little unsettling. I would absolutely go and see him again if I needed to, but if you're someone that values a soft side in your doctor, I think you'll be better served by someone other than Dr. Bakal.
Dr. Bakal is straight and to the point. I felt listened to and cared for. I would highly recommend Dr. Bakal to others. The only slight criticism I would have is over the state of the waiting area. It could definitely use a facelift (or at least some new chairs). The waiting room, though, had no bearing whatsoever on my overall very positive experience.
Dr.Bakal understands what I am going through he assessed the problem and determine what would be helpful to me.
Great doctor, he answered all my questions, he was very professional.
Very positive, and he was very gracious and polite.
Awesome visit....nothing to complain about really except maybe, just maybe we can do away with PAPER FORMS for once? Lol, just kidding but not kidding! :)
Great Dr. Helped me with my discomfort.
The doctor was very professional and thorough. He was very knowledgeable in the field and very comprehensive. I was very impressed with himself and the staff.
He was nice and friendly.
After the usual NY wait to see the doctor, he was incredible short and unemotional with me. I didn't mind the lack of emotion, but in general he didn't seem to express any of the usual doctor caring you'd expect. His diagnosis of my issue was fine, but in general it wasn't a pleasant experience. It seemed like he couldn't wait to get back to his computer. Considering the many urologists in this city, I'd say confidently that you can find someone who will treat you better.
Dr. Bakal is very pleasant, knowledgable and has great bedside manner! His staff is very competent. Lauri is exceptional. The office is beautiful and very clean. I would highly recommend this practice.
One of the few doctors who seems to care about patients rather than going through the motions.
The thing i like about Dr Bakal is that he believes in informing patients about whats going on and why he is prescribing a certain medicine.
VERY PROFESSIONAL !
Having never been to a Urologist, I didn't know what to expect. Dr. Bakal is thorough and respectful and made me feel comfortable during the exam and was unhurried during our closing discussion in his office. The staff was pleasant and welcoming.
he was great and helped me right away. He listened and was very responsive and gave a lot of explanation. Will go again if ever necessary His office assistant Marina was very accommodating and helpful in the particular scheduling and rescheduling requests I made.
He was very nice and informative. Answered all my questions. I did not feel rushed. And when I thought I had a silly question, he did kit make me feel silly for asking.
He was efficient and helpful. I appreciated his frankness. Professional and nice guy.
Very thorough and professional
very good doctor
Always attentive, professional and thorough.
Dr. Bakal listened attentively and answered all my questions. He was thorough and clear.
I have seen him before and that's the reason to see him again.
He is an excellent diagnostician. His recommended course of treatment demonstrated that he is very knowledgeable in that he pursued the least invasive course at the outset reserving the more agressive treatment for later if necessary. He is affable and I felt comfortable and at ease in his care. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Bakal is professional and warm. He was thorough and explained everything to me in clear, precise language. I am going to use him again. Thank you!
Nice Doctor, but waiting an hour is ridiculous and a waste of my time.
The doctor was professional, nice and helpful. The staff was very nice as well. The wait was a bit much but wasn't too bad. Just bring a book to read or something else to take your time while waiting.
Good doctor but wait time was almost an hour.
Very patient, saw me right away, great trustworthy. Great doctor!
He was friendly and competent.
Knowledgeable, courteous, professional - easy enough to talk to about sensitive issues
He's very thorough, professional, knowledgeable and always makes you feel at ease. The girls at front desk are friendly, efficient and in my case, unlike most of the staff at other doctors, they went to great lengths to sort out all my foreign insurance paperwork, so that I wouldn't have to pay the bills and claim afterwards.
Only my first visit, the office staff was brusk, but the Doctor was very helpful.
Dr. Bakal was very personable, well researched and did not rush the appointment like most doctors do. The office staff is also professional and friendly. Highly recommend.
Great Doc !!!!
Dr's appointment went smooth, but on the way to schedule a follow-up i noticed an open chart with a descriptive drawing of my penis right in front of the receptionist (all females by the way)so if u don't mind closed door talk out in the open Dr. Bakal is your man.
Very attentive and ready to listen to your queries. Always, ready to answer your questions. I will visit him once a year for regular checkup
