Dr. Bahk is very concerned about your well-being & is an excellent surgeon w/an excellent team. He takes the time to listen to you. I received care beyond my expectations & quite grateful for the attentive doctors, nurses & staff. Their surgery center was also outstanding! I was nervous to be there but everyone took extra time to assure me everything was on track & that they would take good care of me; which they did! I would highly recommend Dr. Bahk & Dr. Yasuda & their staff. Thank you everyone!

Excellent doctor! Very professional with a reassuring bedside manner. My knee surgery was beyond successful and I have regained a degree of use and freedom from pain I haven't experienced since before I first injured the joint in high school over 30 years ago. I'm so pleased with the results, I might go in for a "tune-up" on my OTHER knee! I trust Dr. Bahk wholeheartedly with the health of my joints and I would recommend him emphatically to anyone.

This was my second rotator cuff surgery. I had similar surgery on my right shoulder performed by Dr. Bahk four years ago. That was a more difficult surgery and a complete success. When I learned that I would need similar surgery on my left shoulder I knew immediately that I would only allow Dr. Bahk to perform the surgery. The surgery was performed two weeks ago and everything appears to be healing correctly. If you are ever required to have rotator cuff surgery, I strongly recommend you consider Dr. Bahk.

The procedure was a total shoulder replacement, performed by Dr. Bahk, at Thousand Oaks Surgical Hospital. Everything went off exactly as anticipated. The hospital staff were friendly and professional. The anesthesiologist was fabulous. I am impressed by the outcome of the surgery as well as the entire process.

Dr. Bahk performed a total reverse replacement of my shoulder and although it's only been two weeks, I am comfortable, the incision is neat and my swelling/overall pain level is very tolerable.

I shattered my shoulder March 23. I went to local surgeon who said I would never have all use of my arm. So I drove 20 miles to see Dr. Snyder in Van Nuys SCOI, but because of Co-Vid he was not doing any surgery. Dr. Bahk was there instead. He did beautiful work...the x-ray looked great. He has a special certificate that you can only get if you do this type of procedure if you do 50 every year...he does 100. His qualifications are very impressive.....top of his class etc. I will see how it works out after I heal and continue with my physical therapy. His receptionist gushed over the wonderful work he did on her's.
