I will NEVER recommend someone to visit this office. I have never felt so disrespected by a Dr in my life. I will have to pay a lot of money for the visit yet have no more information then I did before I came in. I have a very enlarged liver (23cm) and bad pain on right side. All this Dr told me is that some ppl just have big livers...wow!! My diag (NAFL) was never explained to me whatsoever. Complete waste of time and money! So sad that people like this even get to practice medicine

I had a very difficult experience with this practice. I never was introduced to the doctor even when I was in the procedure room. He never talked to me even after I had complications during and after my procedure which he never completed. Many phone calls to the office took days to returns. A month later I'm still recovering. Have to get another procedure done now with new doctor. This procedure cost me thousands of dollars in medicine, doctors visits and an ER visit. I'm very disappointed

A family member has stage 4 cirrhosis from NASH that the doctor completely missed. She went to this doctor for over 10 years, with him doing a physical exam only twice. Now, her only chance of survival is a liver transplant. If it had been caught earlier, treatment options could have prevented the fatty liver from progressing to.cirrhosis. When the doctor was confronted with the information, he dismissed the family member as a patient. His staff is rude, unprofessional, and needs HIPAA training

While Dr. Bagamery does an excellent job his staff is absolutely horrible. They are rude over the phone and in person. You will get two different answers depending on who you speak with. If you are reading this and considering Bagamery's office don't there are much better options out there.
