This doctor came highly recommended but we had a terrible experience with him. He lied to us numerous times. He was very unprofessional. He was supposed to operate on my baby but then said he was "too busy". He said he'd be there for the surgery but not the beginning and the end...who says that. We spoke to a bunch of his colleagues and they said if he said that he has no intention of doing the surgery. This after meeting with him and he assured us he would do it unless he was admitted to the hospital himself. Why would you lie to patients during such a stressful and emotional time. He showed no care for us as people. How do you do that to someone. He also had the opportunity to apologize but pretended he didn't know who we were. The other doctors at Columbia are just as good and they take care of their patients a ton better. I wouldn't recommend this guy to anyone.

It's coming up on the 3 year anniversary of my son's open heart surgery at 5mos. Dr Bacha came highly recommend by our cardiologist from RWJUH. I couldn't imagine such a tall man working on such hearts (size of a quarter I was told at that age) but he did an amazing job and clearly explained everything pre and post surgery. I am so thankful for this amazing doctor, he not only corrected 2 chd's we were aware of but also, one that was hidden and only apparent during surgery. My son is now 3.5 and thriving. The picu at Columbia I was disappointed with for several reasons but the doctor himself is what we came for.

We were blessed to be referred to Dr. Bacha. Our daughter was diagnosed with an ASD when she was 5 months old. Dr. B. performed her surgery at 6 months. He has himself developed techniques for minimally invasive surgery. He has a calm demeanor and gave us a clear and precise idea of what the procedure would encompass. His staff is wonderful and the follow-up was terrific. Two years later, she is a normal, athletic, almost three year old. We felt completely confident in Dr. Bacha. I believe he is the best in his field.

It's a terrible thing to need Dr. Basha's talent and yet, when you meet him, you will know that you will not do any better. He simply saves children's lives on a daily basis and that's not an exaggeration.

Dr. Bacha is truly a gifted surgeon. He has preformed two open-heart surgeries on our now 5 month old son. Our son was born with HLHS MS/AA requiring a series of palliative interventions. Dr. Bacha is an amazing person, gifted surgeon and truly a blessing to our family. He is not only an amazing surgeon but compassionate person as well. We highly recommend Dr. Bacha and Children's Hospital Boston.
