Dr. Badar has been my Doctor for the past six years and he has done a great job taken good care of me. So much that he has visited me at the hospital when I was sick and had to be admitted. He is humanitarian and a wonderful person with a great and caring heart. Last year I almost lost my life and he was there the entire month at the hospital checking in on me making sure that I am well taken care of. He fought for me and I am certain he will do the same for you.
