Yogesh D. Bakhai does not have an adequate amount of comments to generate the sentiment analysis.
Dr. Bakhai has been given too much power over those who are helpless to lodge legal complaints against him. Unfortunately, his unchecked power, overseeing psychiatric programs at the University at Buffalo and running the psychiatric units at ECMC, have made him a sort of king in his own mind - he fears no professional consequence, and so he requires the bare minimum of himself in his professional practice and relies solely on the forced treatment model to justify his professional existence. He is not interested in his patients, or in seeing them who for they are or helping them; instead, he sees himself as an arm of the institution, there to sign off on diagnoses made by his incompetent colleagues in order to medicate people and protect the institution from financial culpability. He participates in the early traditions of psychiatry, wherein he makes a robotic spectacle of his authority through his favorite professional toy: the treatment-over-objection apparatus. Dr. Bakhai is unaware of newer developments and trends in the field; 'trauma-informed' is not in his vocabulary, despite the fact that he is an efficient and proficient deliverer of institutional trauma. His professional opinion is worth very little. He works for the institution and its affiliates-- not for the suffering individual. If you end up under his authority, you likely will not have any choice in the matter of your care, anyway; but if you can avoid him, do so. It would be a nice surprise if, in his retirement after he collects his hefty psychiatric pension, he gains some insight into the mistakes he made along the way... and actually admits to having made them.
I was stressed over being hospitalized and he would not even give me my meds that my personal psych doctor prescribed! Unbelievable and I felt he had a n attitude as well. He won’t let you be part of your recovery !! Run from him
incompetence and poor bedside is the worst combination! He told me that OCD is not a serious illness and then referred me to a psychologist that did specialized in Psychodynamic Therapy. No mention of the first line treatment for OCD which is Exposure Response Prevention. I have the priveledge of seeing the world experts on OCD and they thought that this should be in even a general psychiatrists scope of practice. Sorry Yogi you suck!
I saw him after visiting the ER and had to go through EOB for 72 hours. He was very hard to talk to and was never really around. His experience with addiction patients has lead him to avoiding certain medications regardless if a patient needs it or not. I only got to talk to him twice for 5 minutes. Not only that, I ended up crying cause of how cruel he can be to people.
I have been trying to find Dr.Bais since he left his first office w Dr.Vjendala in Jamestown NY This is the first time I've found him. I hope this is ask accurate and update sight. He was a wonderful Dr. There are No decent dr.s here anymore that actually care about their patients more then their pay! Are u excepting new/old patience? Lol this is April Pellerino...Perhaps u remember me...
