Review of Dr. Kabeer


Dr. Kabeer is an authority in his specialized field at all levels. Professionally, personally, and during follow ups he maintains the highest regard for the child and parents. CHOC is fortunate to have a pediatric surgeon of the caliber of Dr. Kabeer. During the entire experience we felt we were in the right hands and always informed. Thank you Dr. Kabeer!

Review of Dr. Kabeer


My son's hernia repair surgery went very smoothly thanks to Dr Kabeer. He was very thorough and clear as to what would happen during surgery and was very calming and professional on the day of. My son breezed right through and was back to himself the next day. Dr Kabeer has a great bedside manner and I'd recommend him to anyone.

Review of Dr. Kabeer

- in Costa Mesa, |

Dr. Kabeer operated on our daughter at 6 days old, 21 days old, and 2.5 months old. We were lucky that Dr. Kabeer was our daughter's head surgeon for all 3 surgeries. Dr. Kabeer always explained all procedures and put us at ease at stressful times. Dr. Kabeer is not only skilled as a surgeon, he cares about his patients and their families. Dr. Kabeer frequently checked in our daughter and went above and beyond to make sure she got the care she needed. We can't recommend him enough

Dr. Kabeer is an excellent doctor who has shown us such compassion and dedication. My son was having issues so Dr. Kabeer saw us in his office the same day at 11:00pm! Dr. Kabeer uses the most advanced medical treatments and we are so thankful for his expertise and commitment

Review of Dr. Reyna

- in Los Angeles, CA |

My daughter was treated by Dr. Reyna 3 years ago. She was undergoing her first surgery (Supprelin implant). I was so scared and my then 8 year old daughter was scared too. At our consultation appointment with Dr. Reyna, he was calm, kind, and genuine. He showed my daughter what the implant would look like and was very reassuring. The surgery was a success and the recovery was super quick. Our insurance changed our doctor for her 2nd surgery, but we came back for the 3rd surgery to Dr. Reyna!

Dr. Kabeer was amazing! Great with kids, which made my son feel more comfortable with him and about having surgery. Very patient in answering all my questions. My sons surgery and post-op were better than expected. Would definitely recommend Dr. Kabeer!

Review of Dr. Kabeer

- in Laguna hills, CA |

We highly recommend Dr. Kabeer. He is truly a skilled and compassionate doctor. He performed a very complicated surgery (pectus extravatum) masterfully and minimized our son’s pain. He stays abreast of the latest techniques and suggested a procedure that would reduce his pain on one side of his chest. As a result our son was released from the hospital after two days and is recovering quickly. Dr. Kabeer also spent quality time with us parents! Thank you Dr. Kabeer and your wonderful staff
