I was very impressed by DrBiama. Very upfront and honest.

The best experience with my daughter's knee surgery
in Colton, CA |
Dr. Biama's expertise in orthopedics is beyond compare. He is an honest surgeon and prefers to get straight to the point. I feel Dr. Biama's straight forward approach is needed to get the message a crossed to patients who need their medical problems resolved. Unlike most, "sugar coating" is not the approach needed when your health is at risk! Dr. Biama goes beyond his specialty. I have witnessed surgeons calling upon him to do the impossible in regards to orthopedic "disasters".

rude, disinterested

No bedside mannor at all! Makes you feel stupid for asking questions.

He has done more than one surgery for me. He is hands down the best out there. If there is a best outcome possible, you will get it from him. I spoke with other medical staff in the ER, and they told me that the one qualified to handle the severity of my injury was Dr. Biama. We were able to discuss financial difficulties and he made sure we were able to see him. We were able to laugh and cry, literally, with him. I would choose him every time! Every time.

Dr. Biama was very friendly and personable. I was very impressed with his knowledge and his expertise in his field of orthopedic surgery focusing that knowledge on my hip that needs a total hip replacement. I left my appointment feeling confident that I have been referred to the best surgeon and that the outcome will exceed my expectations.
I wish they had a option for me to give this guy negative 200 stars ... I've never experienced this type of treatment from a dr ... Rude .... Rough and just unprofessional .. Didn't greet me or introduce himself and was an hour late ... DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN im only giving one star because it won't let me post my comment without one. HE WAS THE ABSOLUTE WORST!!!!!!!
in Beaumont, CA |
Dr. Biama is wonderful. He's a brilliant surgeon and cares about his patients. I've been a patient of his for almost 10 years and had 6 surgeries done by Dr. Biama. He's one of the smartest doctors I've ever met and very up to date on medical technology. I have a very difficult medical history and Dr. BIama always takes the time to make sure I'm on the best track. I am confident that Dr. Biama is the best in his field.
