Dr. Eghbalieh was more than we could ever have hoped for. He gave my mother, an 84-year-old, a hugely serious esophageal hernia repair. It was 100% successful and besides being beyond experienced, he is compassionate and loving. I highly highly recommend him.

I simply cannot give enough stars to Dr. Babak Bobby Eghbalieh. He is a gifted "general" surgeon with in-depth knowledge of many specialties. I vetted several surgeons before deciding upon him, not only for his wealth of medical and surgical acumen + training and accomplishments in his field, but also because he's a genuinely nice guy with a wonderful bedside manner. Also fabulous is his staff - from reception, to schedulers, nurses, and aides, and his lovely, sweet, smart-as-a-whip PA, they are all professional, efficient and kind - a tough combo to find. In short, gifted and compassionate general surgeons with great bedside manners and a strong office support staff are incredibly difficult to locate. I feel fortunate and thankful that Dr. Eghbalieh has been on my care team.

I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in may of this year. Dr. Babak (Bobby) Eghbalieh became my point man for treatment. His office staff are the most professional, accurate employees I’ve ever dealt with; they knew me by sight after my first appointment, and I never had to deal with the typical check-in grind thereafter, which is unheard-of. Bobby is incredibly thorough, CARING, and will become your biggest cheerleader. He does what he says he will, and his staff let no moss grow on approvals. He told me himself, that he hand-selects his staff, and it shows. Wait times can be long, but because he spends so much time with yo during appointments, it’s to be expected. I HIGHLY recommend him for anyone going through cancer. The man is intelligent, hilarious, and quick-witted. Did I mention caring? Absolutely. You are not a number or faceless - he gives a damn, personally.

Dr. E is the best surgeon. He saved my life after having a botched gastric bypass. I had performed numerous surgeries to fix another doctors mess up. He was always a joy, I cannot say enough about him. Now that I am having problems again, I am sad that he has moved to a different location. Mary Ann Javaux Hanford, CA

An amazing surgeon. I have been to many doctors in the valley, but no one like him. He is kind, patient and attentive to all his patients. I didn't know what to expect the first time I met him. I did have to wait a bit during the visit, but IT WAS totally worth it. Highly recommend Dr. Bobby Eghbalieh

A breath of fresh air to have a doctor take the time to communicate clearly and address all your concerns . He was kind enough to draw out a picture that I may see how the procedure would be done. He was just as polite, professional and caring in his office as he was in the hospital where I was first introduced to such a wonderful professional of the medical field. Thank you.

Dr Eghbalieh combines unparalleled education and experience with a rare, welcome level of professionalism and a warm bedside manner into a practice that is a valuable asset to our community and a great credit to his profession. I consider it a privilege to have been a recent patient of his robotic laparoscopic surgery to repair an inguinal hernia. Thanks again, Doctor Bobby!
