Verified Patient Reviews
I'm officially hooked! the acupuncture really helped my headache and my neck pain. I 'm so glad Dr. Bayner lead me to this instead of pills. I'm totally recommending acupuncture to all my friends. Dr. B really knows her stuff!
She was very thorough, kind and very caring. She took her time to get to know me and my pain and symptoms. I would highly recommend her.
Office is filthy paperson and boxes everywhere, ractitoner was TEXTING during her consult w me! NO GLOVES when giving shots (and im sure she didnt wash her hands beforehand bc saw her with 2 other persons in a mtg in her office before me)!!! The waiting room is way overcrowded and i waited more than 2 hours since my appt time to be seen (others did too). Another clinician had to knock to remind the practitoner that I was waiting bc she was busy talking w others in her office. I saw a clinician eating lunch on the examining table and that same person interrupts comes in the office to get supplies during my visit. Practitioner may be knowledgeable and friendly but unbelievable what I had to put up with today, it is an unprofessional practice. Clean the place up! At least front desk staff were cordial.
Dr.Bayner made me feel very comfortable especially since that was my first time ever meeting her,she went above&beyond to answer all my questions,she is very,very sweet&caring
Dr Bayner saw me even after I was over an hour late after my scheduled appointment time. She took her time in consulting over my test results and offered me an appropriate treatment plan. I find she is understanding and very relatable unlike many other Pain physicians in this city.
Great doctor but wait can be long sometimes
I think that the office is a mess. First they left my mom waiting for 2 hours and half, once we sit to see the doctor we come across a grumpy and very unprofessional doctor. My mom is telling her that she is having pain in her ankle (additional to her onset problem) and the doctor was very unprofessional and told my mom, why didn't she mentioned before, meanwhile we were there to tell her the new problem she has been experiencing. All the visit time the doctor was talking to my mother with an attitude. I will never go to this facility again I Do NOT RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE! I work with doctors my self and neither me or the doctors I work for treat their patients the way she treat it us. I'm very disappointed.
I was referred to Dr. Bayner by one of her patients, and I feel lucky to have found her to manage my pain. She took the time to listen to what my issues were, and tried to figure out the solution. She gave me medication and incorporated acupuncture and injections, which made a huge difference. Dr. Bayner also uses laser therapy - super cool! I would definitely recommend Dr. Bayner.
She is a wonderful doctor and person. She takes her time to make sure she hears you. She is very knowledgable and caring. More doctors should take a page out of her book!!!
Dr. Banner is wonderful. She is an experienced professional and her entire staff is so warm and reassuring. I walked out, not just feeling better from the treatment I received, but convinced that I would get better soon.
Im 6 months pregnant and was experiencing really bad sciatica. Dr. Bayner gave me trigger points in my back with lidocaine as well as dry needling and it has helped me significantly. I just also loves how she takes the time to talk to you about your issues and she really cares about your pain!
Dr Bayner was extremely prompt with our appointment. After being seen within minutes of arriving we had a brief discussion in which I felt she listened and fully grasped to my issue. After a brief evaluation Dr Bayner was able to provide me with a full diagnosis, immediate solution to my pain and a plan for the future. Highly recommend.
The office had no idea that I was coming in, yet I received a confirmation email from zocdoc, however Dr.Bayner took me in immediately to see me because she saw how much pain I was in (even though she was about to step out). She began treating/diagnosing me before she even knew if my insurance would be covering any treatment. Dr.Bayner is kind hearted and caring woman who really goes beyond to help her patients and that goes as well with her whole team. I have never been treated so well and quickly before in my 4 years of experience in doctors offices for my back pain. I highly recommend anyone looking for an orthopedist or anyone suffering from pain to see Dr.Bayner. Excellent and caring doctor without a doubt.
She is one of the few doctors who actually take the time to listen to your issues, and provide comprehensive treatment! I absolutely love her!
The doctor always takes time with me, she answers all my questions and never seems to be in a rush to move on to the next patient. I always feel completely satisfied after my appointment. There are no UNANSWERED QUESTIONS, DOUBTS, or CONFUSION. Everyone is friendly, pleasant and everyone gives the best service possible - you give your patients such a warm welcome. I highly recommended Dr. Bayner unreservedly !!!
Dr. Bayner is a caring and educated doctor. She knew how to treat me for my pain as soon as I told her what was wrong. She takes her time and examines you. I will recommend her to all my friends.
She's a very good doctor, but she is unreliable and takes personal calls while you are in the exam room. She is supposed to come into the office by 10a.m. She is rarely, if ever, there even close to 10a.m. The people at the front desk say she is "stuck in traffic" every time. She does not take appointments; it is a first come first serve kind of place. The front desk is very nice and the physical therapists are very sweet and helpful. Dr. Bayner has really helped with my back and neck pain. If I could change one thing it would be her unreliability....other that that she is a great doctor.
She was great but I waited a long time to be seen. There doesn't seem to be much organization in the office and she did not consult me before scheduling me for additional services in the office that I wasn't even sure would be covered by my insurance or how they would help my condition.
TOP OF THE LINE , COULDN'T BE MORE SATISFIED. THE ENTIRE.STAFF ABSOLUTELY PROS
I think she was very professional and very helpful to my case. I'm very happy that I found her on zoc doc!
I made a great decision on choosing Dr Bayner, she was very efficient , professional and had me in therapy for my elbow immediately after my visit, I will be returning for more!!
She was very professional, thorough to find out my medical history and the painful conditions that brought me to see her. She let me know exactly how she could help me and explained the treatments. I started treatment right after speaking to me , which I thought was great. When you are in pain that means so much, not having to wait for another visit to get treatment. I felt she wanted to help me with my pain as soon as possible.
Great. She's understanding. And she plans out treatments for an easy recovery.
What a nightmare! I made an appointment for my husband who has been in terrible pain for months from a back injury. In his first visit to Dr. Bayner's office, her staff had no clue he had an appointment and had no clue what ZocDoc was. They made him wait for over an hour without ever speaking to him. Finally, when he was frustrated enough to leave, the only girl in her office with any sense stepped up to help him. He said Dr. Bayner was very nice and helpful when he was finally able to see her. He was sent for an MRI, which he had to reschedule because they could not get in touch with anyone from Dr. Bayner's for authorization. When he was finally able to get in for an MRI and make a follow up appointment with Dr. Bayner, they made him wait over an hour and a half. No on in her office said a word to him. Two people came in and told the staff in Spanish (which he understands perfectly) that they didn't have an appoint, and they were taken right in before him. When he was finally taken in, they didn't have his MRIs there and Dr. Bayner had no recollection of even sending him for one. After he had to bring her up to speed she her staff to contact a completely different office than the one they sent him to for his MRIs. Needless to say, he left the office without any help for his back and I am looking for a new doctor to send him to. Dr. Bayner was very friendly seemed like she could be a good doctor, but she needs to be aware of what goes on in her office.
Dr.Bayner is a knowledgeable pretty good doctor, however she is lacking in bedside manner & having any courtesy for her patients time, it's as if her time is somehow so much more valuable & her office shows no regard for patients time or the fact we are in pain waiting for some sort of relief & even arriving 2 hours early for a scheduled confirmed APPT time, there is STILL A LONG WAIT-Showing up 2hrsearly you are lucky to be seen in 3 1/2 hrs & worse you will not get all of your questions answered or matters resolved for that APPT., instead you will be told "it's too busy, next time, come back tomorrow, come to my other office-a difference in over an hour of transportation time-and if you voice your concern or unhappiness over the long wait,sitting in traffic, paying $6 to park, wasting gas & time & you are unable to go tomorrow to her other office to get your APPT for that week x
So,it is sad that it takes seeing Dr. B 2-3 times in a week to get done what was scheduled to be done in 1 APPT.-therefore TWO ENTIRE DAYS & evenings are wasted due to extremely l
Dr. Bayner listened to my pain complains and was very patient with me. She administered pain medications that relieved my pain. She is helpful and knowledgeable. The staff is courteous and attentive. I recommend Dr. Bayner very much.
even i had confirmed appointment. i still had to wait about 2 hours.
I am dealing with a lot of pain, and I really appreciate when a doctor does more than just write you pain medication. Her pain management techniques are really great. She also has this new laser therapy treatment that seems to really work. I also get the sense that she really cares for her patients well being. I also think it’s great that she provides plenty of techniques and testing to treat pain. I got lucky with the wait, however if the waiting room is full of patient’s that is also a good sign. If anyone is looking for a good pain management doctor she is definitely someone you should give a try.
Dr. Bayner has a very busy office, but she takes time with each and every patient to listen to your problems in detail. Rather than giving you the in an out she is deeply concerned with the details of your healing. More so she takes the time to explain what medication she is prescribing, and why this one versus another. I don't feel she is making her decisions on what the drug reps are pushing but on what will help heal me best.
Dr. Stephanie Bayner has helped me tremendously to confront symptoms that dealt directly with pain. I was suffering of a serious trauma to my neck, and as I was going from doctor to doctor without any hope, finally Dr. Bayner appeared to rescue me from literally what I have to call hell. The pain and suffering was beginning to affect not only my entire body, as well, it was beginning to impact my psychological state of mind. Just went I was entering a space of complete lost, psychological and physical, just with one visit Dr. Bayner not only was capable of giving me an accurate diagnosis, but was capable of bringing relief to my pain and suffering. Dr. Bayner provided me with excellent care, she is supported by an extremely professional staff, and she practices both western medicine, as well as, Chinese medicine. Dr. Bayner does not only treats pain, but provides healing from a holistic perspective, in this manner, I must mention that my life was hitting bottom until I first arrived to her office. Since then, I continue to improve my health and I continuously find myself inspired to confront my health challenges diligently and in ways I had never expected, as I now find myself practicing yoga out of her suggestion. Therefore, Dr. Bayner not only is a doctor, but someone that truly helps and care for the patients well being from a holistic perspective. I highly recommend Dr. Bayner to any person that needs treatment and relief from pain.
Dr Bayner seemed much more interested in my insurance, when she saw that it covered accupuncture she pushed for it, barely listened to me about my knee pain. Useless, did nothing to help. . The front desk was pleasant, but I waited for over an hour. Would not recommend
