Dr. Badar is a kind, generous, smart, hardworking doctor. He has been taking care of me for 11 years and I trust him completely and if you know me trust is very difficult to give. These last few months I have been very sick. I was hospitalized at Loma Linda University Medical Center. The nephrologist that were there are top notch and many offered to be my nephrologist but I wouldn’t trade them for Dr. Badar. There really aren’t enough superlatives to describe how lucky I am to have him as my doctor.

I really like Dr. Badar he's an awesome doctor. Very patient, takes time to explain thins to his patients and most of all is very considerate of how a patient may feel about their health so he tells them what they definitely need to know in all honesty but somehow makes them feel that there is hope for their situation if it is a serious one. I really like him he's a good Doctor need more like him. I wish him all the best in his career.

10/10!! I wish I could give more stars to this medical group. The front office is very friendly and so helpful. Dr Badar's nurse Evelyn is the absolute best, always reminding me to get my labs done on time and reminding me of my appointments. Everyone deserves to have the one on one attention I get here from the doctors and staff.

Dr. Rizwan Badar is a fantastic kidney doctor. Three years ago we took my mother in for her first visit, then age 85 with CKD stage 4 and we were very worried she may be headed for dialysis. Dr. Badar is professional and friendly and really has a great ability to educate his patients and their family in a way they can understand what is happening. By adjusting her BP meds and diet, over the last 3 years she has achieved and maintained a CKD stage 3 level.
