What People Say About Dr. Bradley Bagan, MD

Let me make this perfectly clear - He is a joke of a doctor with a huge ego. He as low man on the totem poll at office in Libertyville,IL. Other doctors had full schedule so he decided to see me an my severe lower back pain (near sciatica). Guess what his diagnosis was? "I'm not sure what it causing the pain. We can try surgery again to see if it changes things". No clue what the plan was, just to have me go under knife and hope! I told him get lost, and filed complaint with office manager. She was not surprised. STAY AWAY people in Iowa. I understand he is there now. Bouncing from state to state.
