Have you seen Dr. Soroya Bacchus?
Posted on July 14th, 2015
I really liked her at first, but I got increasingly less comfortable with her as time went on. She would make inappropriate comments about me (called me an idiot, but I couldn't tell if she was joking or not) and even about other patients of hers (called one of her patients "crazy"). She refused to diagnose me despite my asking her for an evaluation. She kept going back and forth on what "might" be wrong with me, yet still wouldn't agree to assess me. When I started feeling worse and I brought up the possibility of increasing some of my medication doses, she told me that I wasn't "actually" depressed at that time and then said that she wanted to start taking me OFF some of my medications instead -- even though the last time we tried that a few weeks prior, I became very unstable. I also wasn't a fan of her talk therapy. She didn't seem to listen to me a lot, and instead just wanted me to say what she expected of me, rather than letting me come to my own conclusions. I can see how other people might really love her, especially by all of the positive reviews she has, but I just feel that I had a more negative experience with her than anything else.

I don't know if it's possible to put into words how much Dr. Bacchus has helped me. Working with her has genuinely been a life-changing experience. With her help I have treated my depression, my eating disorder, and learned how to speak up for myself and started a real healing journey towards determining the perfect form of me. I'm no longer suffering from Anorexia...My special thanks to this brilliant woman. I highly recommend!
STRESS FREE! THANK YOU DR. BACCHUS

I can only begin by stating what a fantastic person Dr. Soroya Bacchus is. After surviving a horrible car accident where my sister died,getting a divorce, and moving across the country, all in a 2 month span, I didn't know what to do. I wanted to desperately talk to someone who can understand me and tell me how to heal what's inside me. Dr Bacchus was exactly what I was looking for. She is very easy to confer with and she completely understood my position and gave me useful tips and solutions to help cope with all the changes in my life. I just discovered I was dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.I definitely recommend her to anyone who is fighting with issues in their life.

I have been visiting Dr. Bacchus for a while now and I can state that she is a truly caring and an understanding Psychiatrist. I have been suffering from sleep disorder and depression after the birth of our daughter. Dr. Bacchus has assisted me to comprehend why I feel the way I do and has created a treatment solution for me that works like a charm. I am thoroughly impressed with Dr. Bacchus and her staff. I am a better person now thanks to her.
