I truly love this team: Dr. Bader, Erin O'Conner, PA. I did read the poor reviews. I know the new electronic system highlights current and resolved medical conditions which should help these busy doctors. Patients need to alert their physicians to severe diagnoses such as cancer during their consultations. It is impossible to read through a chart in its entirety before a patient's consult. There just isn't enough time in a day. They have been both extremely responsive to my concerns and are skilled physicians.

During out appointment, Dr. Bader made me feel extremely uncomfortable. He was very unprepared and had not read any of my info before my appointment. When he tried to explain my problem to me, he was very unclear, and I did not understand what he was saying. He is a very cold man and I would never recommend his services to anyone.

This guy is terrible!!! When we had our appointment with him he was unprepared and did not have the CT scan from the hospital that referred us to him. We had to wait a half hour in his office waiting for him to get the CT scan. When he was finally was able to locate the CT scan and take a look at it, he casually told my wife that it "looks you might have Pulmonary Fibrosis" and also indicated she may need to have a lung biopsy. He then never returns our calls to provide us with an update or to schedule a follow-up appointment or tests. Thankfully we went to see a real doctor at a top hospital in Boston who determined right away that my wife did not have Pulmonary Fibrosis and would not need a lung biopsy. I would not recommend Dr. Bader as he does not return calls, is indifferent toward his patients, and does not seem to know what he's talking about.

My wife went to see Dr.Bader for breathing problems.He gave her inhalers and did a chest x-ray.He rarely even spoke to my wife but looked at his computer.My wife had a Melanoma Tumor taken off her back previously and it was in her medical records which the Dr Bader did not read.As a result my wife did not get better so a cat scan reveal she had stage 4 Melanoma in her lung,brain and liver.If Dr Bader had done a cat scan the lung tumor could have been found earlier.My wife died 11/19/2019

Without a doubt the worst experience I've ever had with a medical office. They do not ever answer the phone, they do not ever call back, they never get you referrals, they do not fill prescriptions. I've been forced to pay a huge unnecessary bill that insurance would have covered because they wouldn't call me back to give me the correct referral number. Absolutely avoid this place.

No one in the office ever answers the phone you can never get through. You get test results and then never follow up with patient. They are accommodating to get you in if you can get them on the phone. You leave messages to their assistance on the recorder no one ever calls your back. Looking to change doctors

Dr. Bader is a fraud- you better not be sick when you go to him- because when your 15 minutes are up-he will say his lap top battery is running out- then leave the office and have his medical assistant come in with a prescription and usher you out... its like did you really just do that dude?-unbelievable- he treats his patients like they are chumps...but boy does he know how to bill insurance companies- for his services- run the other way
