Dr. Bahadur did an excellent job on my davinci hysterectomy. Following his instructions I came out of the surgery feeling better than expected. I didn't suffer a lot of side effects that others talk about. Not one single instance of Co2 pains! He's very straightforward with you. He listens, gives good feedback. Very good at what he does.

I had a little bit of a complicated surgery, and Dr. B approached it like it was second nature and always came at me with a completely confidant smile and a "lets do this" attitude. Took the time to explain everything, and the entire procedure was done robotically. I am now 24 days post surgery and I'm back to work full time, and even back to my Yoga classes, with some modification. I had my surgery on Dec 23rd, and Dr. took the time to come see me Christmas Eve and release me. Great Dr.

Dr. Bahador treated me a few years ago ( I should have written a review then). In any case his care was exceptional. He helped and pushed me through an extended illness and will forever be grateful. He was always professional and very sensitive. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone.

He seemed like a nice and caring physician but considering I only saw him for a pre-op visit and just before surgery, that is all I know. He could not be bothered to visit me after the surgery in the hospital. Instead the doctor who assisted him (who I did not know) stopped by. The surgery was scheduled to accommodate his schedule with my ob/gyn's schedule to assist him but apparently she didn't show up. If it hadn'the been for that demand from him, I would have scheduled the surgery earlier.
