Dr. Badr is an amazing Dr. Thanks to him and his staff, I survived two aneurysms. Im a patient of his and i am doing fantastic. Thank you Dr. Badr.
in Los Angeles, CA |
I had the unfortunate pleasure to meet Dr. Badr. I was at work and suffered a double aneurysm that needed immediate assistance. When I reached the hospital, Dr. Badr came to my rescue and performed endovascular coiling in the affected area in my brain. After the procedure, he kept a close eye on my recovery and his positive attitude kept me optimistic. Because of his diligence, he scheduled an angiogram and noticed that I needed to get recoiled. I am very lucky to have been under his care.

Best result came out with disk replacement . Strongly Recommended.
in Tujunga, CA |
What an amazing stroke of luck have found Dr Badr. Like many of his patients I was in chronic pain and slowly losing muscle mass and use of my arm. I knew from my first visit that this would be the Dr to operate on me. First visit the office was full of old & new patients. No one better to get a grasp of what is ahead than one that has gone through similar experience. Every single patient I have spoken with since including me is living a more productive life as a result of OP procedures. tnk u:)

I will definitely be recommending Dr. Badr to my family & friends. Dr. Badr took the time to explain my case & the procedure he was going to perform & answered all my questions & concerns. I'm now 3 weeks post surgery & feeling great. Dr. Badr did an amazing job! His office staff is very friendly & efficient. Victoria & Jessica were by far the best office staff I have encountered in all of my medical office visits. Put your health in the hands of Dr. Badr & his staff & you won't regret it!!

I never thought I would ever need a back surgery but I am extremely happy it was handled by Dr. Badr. He was very helpful and thorough every step of the way. His staff was always friendly and courteous which made my feel confident I was making the right decision. Thanks a million.
in Burbank, CA |
Dr. Badr is definitely a great spine surgeon. I would recommend Dr. Badr to everyone who is undecided whether they should go with surgery or not. If anyone I definitely understand how hard it was for me to finally find an experienced, professional and most importantly caring Doctor who is there with you and for every step of the way. It took me total of 3 years to find Dr. Badr. I am able to do things I love with my family again instead of being in pain. Thank you Dr. Badr. God bless your soul.
in Sunland, CA |
I was referred to Dr. Badr by my pain doctor. Just getting them to answer the phone was problematic to begin with. The person who finally answered the phone sounded like a sergeant with her tone and questions. The first one being: "What kind of insurance do you have?"
Larry, Thank you for your input and concern , unfortunately considering the current status of healthcare and the nature of your insurance we have to ask about what insurance to be able ensure that we are contracted with the insurance before you come to visit to avoid any out of pocket expenses . regarding the sergeant we are currently working on improving the patient experience and hiring more trained staff to handle the high volume load of phone calls that we receive . best of health to you

Dr. Badr is simply the best. I was terrified at the thought of having an extensive surgery to ease the pain in my upper back and neck area. Dr. Badr was able to explain thoroughly and demonstrate with models of the spine the procedure I would be undertaking. I had already seen another surgeon that did not put me at ease. Dr. Badr on the other hand was exactly what I was hoping for. Before and after the surgery he was very supportive and I have been extremely happy with the results.
in Los Angeles, CA |
I did not want to have a spinal surgery due to my fears of surgery and not trusting doctors but my primary doctor recommended him and I was not disappointed with the recommendation. Dr.Yaser Badr is a great doctor that I trusted to perform my surgery and I do not regret that decision. The moment I woke up from the surgery I knew that he did a great job and that eliminated any fears and doubts I had about him. I deeply recommend him to others that are unsure of surgery due to doubts of doctors.
Thank you for your kind comments

I was diagnosed w/Trigeminal Neuralgia caused by a dental procedure. Its an facial nerve pain which causes electrical shock-like pain. I had no quality of life, couldn't brush my teeth, eat, speak, or anything that had to do w/ touching my face. After months of searching we found Dr. Badr, from the moment he saw me he knew exactly what to do. I trusted him w/my life & happy to say Ive had 2 successful surgeries that brought me back to life. Thank you Dr. Badr, you're the best! Highly recommended
in Glendale, CA |
I am forever indebted to Dr. Badr for giving me back my health, i was suffering from a chronic lower back pain for the past 10 years, waking up every morning with a debilitating pain and getting worst by the end of the day, i tried every option available and spine surgery was the last option that i took hesitantly because i couldn't work anymore, granted it was a painful surgery for the first two weeks, but finally i can breath easy, my pain is gone after all these years, thank you Dr. Badr.

The staff was very kind and helpfull. Due to my condition I was able to get an appt. within 3 weeks. Once Dr Badr seen my MRI, he scheduled me for surgery the following week. I am very grateful to Dr Badr. He performed a Lumbar Laminectomy replacing 3 discs. Its been 5 weeks since my surgery and I am able to walk again. I'm don't have the pain I suffered from prior to surgery. Thank you very much Dr. Badr. You told me you would fix me and you have. You're awesome.

I had L5+S1 and C5 spinal fusion within 6 months apart. I was in extreme pain before surgery and Dr. Badr has made me almost pain free. The pain that I had going into surgery is gone and once a heal from a recent surgery I won't be in pain. No more low back, neck, sciatica, hip or arm pain. Dr. Badr is fast at handling pre surgery such as MRI and stuff. Thanks to Dr.Badr I have my life back. He should get surgeon of the year award. Thanks Dr. Badr

I could not have asked for a better physician, his bedside manner and ability to explain what it is he will be doing is phenomenal. His skill level is top knotch and had absolutely no hesitation for him to do the procedure I needed. He saved my life. If I could give more stars I would without question.

Glendale, CA |
Just trying to get the appointment was so hard, I do recognized I did not have the correct procedure code, but the referring provider suggest to make an appointment ahead of time, which the secretaries did not want to do it. Once I have the author, took a whole day for the staff to answer phone, and when I said I was looking for an appt they put me on hold for good 15 min, coming back and forth, how can I help you logan, when I said I'm looking for an appot, hold down again, so unprofessionals
