Dr. RAD is amazing. He has been through so much with me. A professional to the highest degree, but also very caring and personable. Best Doctor ever.
in Laguna Woods, CA |
Not recommended. I saw Dr. Rad in the summer of 2016 for constipation, lower abdominal pain and rectal difficulties. He performed 2 tests decided nothing was wrong with me. Pain worsened 6 months later saw 2 more colorectal surgeons one with Cleveland Clinic and one with Cedars Sinai, both determined I had a kinked colon, 14" removed and a rectum needing repair. Dr Rad only relied on 2 tests and did not take the extra step to find out what was wrong with me, his attitude was quite dismissive.

He's the best doctor ever. He is talented and compassionate with amazing bed side manner. He actually saved my life.
in Santa Ana, CA |
Dr. Rad did a colon resection for me in January 2013 (I had colon cancer). He also did a colon resection for my wife in 2013 (she had diverticulitis). In both cases our surgeries were a success. 3.5 years later, we are still functioning normally despite losing a foot of our colon. I can't imagine a better surgeon.
