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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
