I sent my mother in law to see Dr. Badar for asthma which she struggled with for SEVERAL YEARS and after seeing several doctors with little to no help, Dr. Badar was the only one who could get my mother in law effective therapy and meds. We are now both seeing Dr. Badar for pulmonary and sleep concerns and couldnt have made a better decision for our medical care. My husband will be seeing her soon as well

Dr. Badar is an excellent physician, I suffered from high blood pressure and obesity since my early teen years & in my adult life my obesity was believed to interfere with my sleep patterns. Dr. Badar saw me, and not only examined me and not only started me on effective sleep therapy, but also helped with my high blood pressure - my blood pressure hasnt been under control in almost 10 years, despite seeing several doctors. She took time to check out my complete health and referred me to specialist according to my needs for what she couldnt assist with. I have referred all of my family and friends here and they all feel the same way.

Dr. Badar "looked" at my husband (who has medical problems but had gone with me to her office) and said: "your husband does NOT look good-take him for blood work immediately. It was done-his hemoglobin count was 3.2 and transfusions were immediately begun. Being a Critical Care doctor gives her the insight to note problems by sight. I credit her for having saved my husband from possible stroke or worse. She is keeping a handle on my pulmonaryproblem. I would trust her with my life!

Dr Badar saved my husband's life. When everything else failed, she found a way to save his lungs. She followed up with us daily during a long and difficult recovery. She is an exceptional physician.

I have taken my mother to see Dr. Badar for 10 years now, and every single visit has been a positive experience. I find Dr. Badar to be a very caring and compassionate doctor. She always listens and never interrupts, she is kind and has impeccable bedside manners. She always respond to my calls or emails in timely manner. I wish more doctors would be like Dr. Badar. I have recommended Dr. Badar to several family members and everyone is also impressed with her. She is the BEST doctor i ever met.

We were getting an appointment for my dad and since he doesn’t speak English we called the office to confirm that Dr Badr speaks Persian/Farsi and they said she does but on the day of the appointment we found out that the extend of her Farsi skills goes as far as hello and how are you and not to mention we had to pay a $300 visit out of pocket since my dad doesn’t have insurance without even being able to properly communicate with the Dr which was a waste of $300 not to mention that my parents d
