Dr. Bajaj is amazing! He is very experienced, knowledgeable, courteous, caring &I have nothing but positive things to say about him! He has given me so much relief from my back pain. I live in Missouri & am in Marina Del Rey several times a year. His office always fits me in for an appointment if I need to see him. They even gave me a cake on my last visit there because it was my birthday! More info on Dr Bijaj: http://www.theleadingphysiciansoftheworld.com/Akash.Bajaj.8128774.PainMedicine.html

The office was extremely well organized and I found that the Dr. and staff were very knowledgeable and efficient. They quickly reviewed my paperwork and films and recommended a path forward for recovery. I have been to numerous medical professionals throughout my life and I would certainly recommend Dr. Bajaj and his office to anyone needing this type of medical help.

his attitude and demener changed greatly. he was no longer a thoughtful caring and listening doctor. but rather tried to get you out as quickly as possible. I brought mri from November2015. told me I need new ones. I said that I am in pain and need management for that he told me do physical therapy. he cut me off every third sentence. I tried to tell him I will be having surgery and need to see Dr armsteong. he said that he first need a new mri when this one showed problems . he is uncaring.

I would most definitely NOT recommend Dr Bajaj to anyone. His was arrogant, pretentious and disrespected to me. I was sent to him for his help, but instead was treated miserably. People need to speak up about uncaring doctors such as Dr Bajaj. Thank God for web sites such as this.

I actually never saw dr. Bajaj. The only person I saw was a physicians assisstant by the name of Mathew Cunningham, He seemed friendly and helpful but not well organized and after the firsty visit didn't take notes on what we talked about because he couldn't remember our discussion. They were managing my pain meds after a total knee replacement . They wrote down a wrong dosage and when I contacted them for clarity they didn't return my email expaining why they overdosed me by 3X the amount.

Staff used by this doctor was careless, in my opinion. Ultimately I was unable to get my procedure done, but not before arriving at the facility, disrobing, and having vitals checked at 7am. This could have been prevented. I would not recommend.
