I started with 2 tears in the meniscus. Due to other health complications,my surgery was put off for 3 months. When Dr. Bahk did my surgery, he found the meniscus was totally detached. He was able to reattach the meniscus and set me on the path to healing. Dr. Bahk is a very skilled doctor, and he would be my first choice if I ever needed surgery on my arms, shoulders or legs.

My hospital experience was above all I ever expected. The staff who tended me for my overnight stay were caring, took the time to answer my questions, allayed my fears and apprehensions. Dr. Bahk's PA was magnificent. He took the time to explain to me what will happen and what my results would be. He was clear about my recuperation and what I should do to help myself to improve. He was never in a hurry and took the time required to answer my questions, no matter how minor it might have been. I have total confidence in the outcome of the surgery and in the follow-up care in my healing.

When considering a shoulder replacement, Dr. Bahk would be the first dr. that I would recommend. He was very professional, he is at the top of his profession, his staff is also first class.

I had a great experience @ SCOI with Dr. Bahk. He is so consistent with his professionalism and standard of care he takes with each of his patient's. Dr. Bahk fixed a slap tear in my left shoulder in 2012. There was no question who to call when my meniscus tore over the summer. Dr. Bahk remembered me from that experience and was as amazing this time as he was in 2012. I already refer everyone to Dr. Bahk & will continue. Thank you Dr. Bahk, for getting me back in my game, again!

Straight and to the point - and we got it done. Dr. Bahk was not necessarily concerned with pleasing me - just giving me the facts - and we were able to decide on our best path forward and he did a great job with the surgery.
