Worst experience ever! They use extortionist tactics in releasing bills. His office staff is rude and unprofessional. They never send the reports and bills timely. They ask for an upfront fee before they send you a copy of your bill.

Dr. Badr is an excellent neurosurgeon who is very kind, caring and compassionate. He assures he provides the best treatment. As a PA, I appreciated the outstanding care he provided before, during, and after my back surgery. He also has an excellent team working with him, specially Victoria Ramirez who is very professional, kind, and caring. She truly works hard to set up appointments, answer your questions and take cares of any paperwork in a prompt and efficient manner.

Dr Badr and his staff are GREAT. I went to see Dr Badr for a 2nd opinion and he wasted no time ordering the exams needed to find what the actual problem was. He explained what the problem was and a date date was scheduled for my surgery. He has excellent bedside manners and is very positive and reassuring that all will be fine and that is extremely important especially right before surgery. I also want to mention his medical team for their care, especially in the hospital.

Fabulous Neurosurgeon who performed a bi-lateral craniotomy to evacuate sub-dural hematomas. His reputation is superior among all medical personnel I talked to. His staff is also excellent, particularly Kristen and Danny who visited me often in the hospital and kept me informed.

My mother had to have a very serious (and complicated) surgery last month. She had to be transferred to Glendale Adventist where Dr. Badr was to perform the surgery. We were all terrified. Thankfully, the doctor and nurse practitioner were extremely kind and explained everything clearly, which put us at ease. The surgery was successful and now my mom is feeling better than she did even before the surgery, thanks Dr. Badr!

I lumbar surgery L4-L5. Had to have metal placed in. Dr. Badr left screw on my nerve root an kept calling and telling them about my pain for 6 months until another doctor had MRI done showing the screws pressing on my nerve after 6 months Dr Badr finally listened and removed screw. To this day I still have severe pain in leg and lower back. Don't let this be you find another Dr.

Dr. Badr's relaxed personality really helped reduce my stress levels going into my original consult. I had suffered from low back pain for almost 30 years due to an injury when I was 14. I had accepted that fact that I would live in pain for the rest of my life. Then my GP authorized me to go see Dr. Badr. The best decision ever!! Very quickly, Dr. Badr told me what was wrong, what needed to be done, and that I would be pain-free for the rest of my life. He didn't lie!! I'm feeling great!!!

Stay away from this doctor if u want to live! My cousin was admitted to the Glendale Adventist with brain tumor. If only we knew.. After examining my cousin he said that’s her tumor is not an issue and he will remove it and it looks like a benign one. He did the surgery..next time we saw him was in 3 days. Stopped by and left saying 80% of the tumor was removed. My cousin end up having second surgery at Cedars-Sinai in about 3 weeks with dx Grade IV Glioblastoma! Lawsuit waiting to happen!!

Very rude doctor and very rude staff. The 400 pound lady has poor communication skills and extremely rude. And Dr. Badr doesn't give a dam about my tumor all he cares about is his money. I found another Doctor.

What an incredible doctor, practitioner, office staff, pre and post op nurses, assistants, physical therapist and discharge social worker. What a team!!! Thank you all especially Dr. Badr. Ideally having lumber surgery was not an exciting procedure to look forward to. I fortunately was blessed to have Dr. Badr and amazing team that made this surgery a very satisfying experience that I was not welcoming however if I had to do it again Dr. Badr and everyone on his team would be my only choice.

Dr. Badr is an amazing doctor. He is a great spine surgeon. I did not want to have a spinel surgery, but my friend recommended him and I was not disappointed with the recommendation. He took the time to explain my problems, answered all my questions. I did my surgery 4 weeks ago and I'm extremely happy. He saved my life. Thank you very much Dr. Badr. God bless you.
