Specialties

Dr. Geri L Bacu has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

review...

I agree with the previous review. I have found Dr. Baku to be direct, efficient, and concerned...which is what I expect and appreciate in a physician. As I always say, I want a doctor, not a new friend. She makes certain that her diagnosis is accurate and confirmed by lab results.

Doesn't seem to care about being a doctor and treating patients

Dr. Bacu is a pretty rude physician. My experience with her is that she doesn't care to actually listen to you (I complained mostly of my back and neck, but she only ordered bloodwork and X-rays of my hands...) she rolls her eyes, seems really rushed like she doesn't want to be there nor bother to help you at all.. Oh and she is a pill pusher. All she wanted to do was give me lyrica and send me on my way. When I complained about the awful side affects I had from lyrica her nastily said back to me "what do you want me to do about it?" Also, when asking about therapies like what she thought could help, she seemed very annoyed that I was even asking any questions. If you actual want to be treated like a human being and to get help with your condition, do NOT go to Dr. Bacu.
