Review of Dr. Bahador

- in Carlsbad, CA |

His "new patient office gal" will ruin his business!!!! So rude. I called several times and left messages. She said, the faxed report was incomplete. My (referring) doctor's nurse called the office manager and the report was complete. She was too lazy to look. When I was finally seen, he had not read my file. I had to fill in "his questions" as to why I was sent to him. "I" had to tell him my diagnosis of my cancerous ovaries. The whole office lacks EMPATHY!

Review of Dr. Bahador

Dr. Bahador was condescending and dismissive. I personally observed him speak down to women, who he was treating for cancer. These women only wanted a moment of his time and he treated them as if he were a God and they were peasants . Women you deserve better, find someone else.

Review of Dr. Bahador

Gave wrong diagnosis, poor bedside manor, needs patient-relation counseling, should not say "reason you got cancer because you are obese," overall disgust with his arrogance. I switched doctors and Would NEVER RECOMMEND.

Review of Dr. Bahador

I was referred by my OBGYN due to my severe endometriosis. She did not feel confident performing my surgery. At the time, it was difficult going to see an oncologist since there was a chance that I may have cancer. I am so grateful for Dr. Bahador’s expertise! It’s been a little over two months since my surgery and I feel awesome! Better than I have in years. His staff is also very friendly. I totally recommend.

Review of Dr. Bahador

- in CA |

Dr. Bahador was compassionate and made me feel hopeful. He was positive in the pre-op and encouraged me that the genetic syndrome I have, even if passed down to my daughters, will not be as daunting for them in 20 years due to the escalation of genetic discovery. One other person left a comment that Dr. Bahador acted as though he were God, and frankly, that is exactly what I want from someone performing a major surgery on me - so kudos to you Dr. Bahador for being so confident and skilled.

You know you are getting a top quality surgeon when he comes highly recommended by 3 other top surgeons. I was referred to Dr. Bahador by my plastic surgeon who discovered a massive fibroid while performing a procedure. Dr. Bahador and his team had to perform a very difficult surgery. He worked his "magic" and was able to get the fibroid out along the previous incision. I say magic. He would likely argue it was his knowledge, skills, and expertise. Whatever the case, I'm eternally grateful. :)

I found PA Strenkowski to be very caring with an excellent bedside manor. I was fortunate to have a very difficult surgery performed by her and Dr. Bahador, who is world renowned and came highly recommended. After surgery, Ms. Strenkowski checked in in with me every morning during my three day stay at the hospital. Never once did her visit feel rushed. She took her time, answered questions, and genuinely seemed to care about how I was feeling. Very pleased with the care I received.

De Bahador was the only doctor I trusted after speaking w 4 other doctors about my surgery. His staff is unbelievably organized and caring. They respond quickly w paper work and prescriptions. My recovery was amazing. I feel truly lucky that my doctor was Doctor Bahador.
