Patient Comments (2)
in Malibu, CA |
I am outraged at the charges we received from Bahadur. All I did was go for a general, yearly exam. He charged $830 for the visit. A Medicare rip-off. He also gave me a prescription for a dry eyes medicine that was extremely expensive. It runs $500- my co- pay was $70. It turned out not be of any value. Was a brand new medicine, had some serious complications and I switched on my own to an over the counter eye drop that worked even better. I would avoid going to him.

Waited over a month to see what was supposedly best doctor at Jules Stein Eye Clinic. Made to wait over an hour. An assistant/tech did most of the testing and questions. When Bahadur finally came in, he kept leaving (over 4 times, lost count). Had to pry out of him if everything was ok. He practically blinded me after dilating my pupils & didn't feel it necessary to direct where i should be looking as he veered with the extremely bright light from one eye to other rapidly.Eyes sore after-AWFUL!
