11/05/14 1 1 1 1 Never had the chance to meet with this Dr as I was never given an appt by his front office staff. It's been over a month since first contact. She was pleasant during initial contact but all contact after that was rude and 'too busy' attitude. Odd to have someone like this running a busy oncologist office, where the patients are stressed and need a little more TLC. I have chosen another surgeon for this very reason. This Dr came recommended by another well known surgeon in the La Jolla area

17/10/13 4 5 5 5 I love this Dr!!! Dr Bahador is caring and compassionate. He spent a lot of time with me and patiently answered my many many questions. Others say he is great...well he has a wonderful bedside manner too! I gave the office staff a 4 only because Margie saved them. Margi is the best!!! She is always smiling and ready to help. The rest of the front office seems busy and not nearly as caring.

18/08/13 5 5 5 5 Best surgeon. Best holistic care. Best judgment in and outside OR. Even ordered to switch my room to the sunshine side for faster healing. In hospital for 5 weeks now. Earned my complete trust. Bordering on genius.

11/06/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Bahador HAS to be the best in his specialty. I had a laparoscopic/robot assisted hysterectomy + insertion of the Y Mesh for cervix prolapse on Jun 4 2013. Came home on the 5th. Never lost a drop of blood, never took a pain pill after leaving the hospital. He is careful and detail oriented. His bedside manners are perfect. He has the most caring staff and makes the patient feel like she is the only one he has.

19/06/12 5 5 5 5 I was referred to Dr Bahador by my GYN @ SRS-La Mesa, to see if I was a candidate for laporapscopic repair of a prolapse via robotic surgery. Although the surgery ended up requiring so much more, as well as operation hours, Dr Bahador remained kind, courteous and professional every time he spoke with me. I am now 1 week post-op, and feeling pretty damn good. Thanks so much to Dr Bahador!
