Patient Comments (1)

His is very friendly, direct, professional and thorough. I went to Dr. Badger for a inguinal hernia repair... fairly routine but a health care hiccup for me nonetheless. Dealing with him made it just that... routine. I also noticed that the nursing staff spoke highly of him. That speaks volumes...more
