      I couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Bader. He has performed hip surgery on me as well as PRP. He also treated my ankle and my knee. I trust him implicitly. He is thoughtful, profession, skilled, kind and caring.

      Dr. Bader has seen me twice on the same-day as injury appointments. He was able to schedule surgery within a few days and did an outstanding job... very kind, caring and skilled.

      I few years ago, Dr. Bader performed my ACL reconstruction surgery at the Martinez Medical Center. I can't begin to say how pleased I am with the outcome and his expertise. Dr. Bader goes above and beyond the call of duty to inform you of what the process is going to be to make sure you are comfortable with the outcome. He's a Dr. that actually cares about his patients. He's very easy to talk to. It's almost like talking to a friend. I can't thank him enough for what he has done for me.

      Partial Torn ACL/Damaged Menesicus. Dr. Bader was more than what I could ask for in a surgical Doctor. He made me feel confident in everything he was doing. Would recommend to any sports related injuries and or athletes.
