Our mother was still in excruciating pain. We called the office 3 times and no one called us back. We had to go to a different physician for help.

I have seen a lot of Arrogant Ortho’s in my 64 years. But what a refreshing experience dealing with Dr. Bahu. Has a SUPPER PERSONALITY!!! Explained what he would do during my surgery. Any question I had, he answered in a way my wife and I understood. Thank you Dr. Bahu for a great surgery experience! I would recommend him to all with shoulder issues.

Nice staff and Doctor but pay attention to their billing practices. They charged my insurance ~$350 for a 5 minute appointment. When I complained their office manager even stated, we overcharge insurance knowing they won't pay for it all. Which seems like it is a poor way to run a business and take care of patients.
