DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR!!! He was A RUDE, CONDESCENDING, UNEMPATHETIC, UNCOMPASSIONATE, UNPROFESSIONAL JERK!! During my consultation, he walked into the exam room without introducing himself, and saw I was still filling out the history form. I was on the last page of the form and told him I would just be a few minutes. He made a comment about me not being done with the form he needed, and left the room. Through the door I could hear him talking about me to his staff. Next, I could hear him move on to see another patient. In the meantime I finished the form in approx five minutes after he left me. After 20-25 minutes, I could hear him in the hall very rudely telling a patient he was cutting off her pain meds after she asked for a prescription. She sounded incredulous when asking what she was supposed to do about her pain. I did not hear his response, but thought he was coming in to see me next, and instead heard him ask the medical assistants if room 6 was next (I was in room 4). I waited approximately another thirty minutes, several times wondering why he had not checked back with me after seeing the first patient. I felt as if he was trying to get back at me for not having the form ready. Anyway, when he finally returned, he still didn't introduce himself. I was sitting in a chair, and he pantomimed (instead of just asking) for me to get on the exam table. I proceeded to lay on the table and again he pantomimed for me to sit up. He never asked for the form he supposedly needed from me, just began to tell me how I did not look like I had the problem I came to him for, and that if I did have the problem there was nothing that could be done to help me. When I began to tell him what another doctor said that could help, he shut me down by saying, "Are you going to keep talking or are you going to let me talk?" He repeated this rudeness two additional times, once after I tried to give him some background on my condition, and another after I revealed to him that I am an RN. I was so angry that tears came to my eyes while I was trying to keep from disrespecting him and myself by cursing him out. I was still quite angry when he asked me a question, therefore I could not immediately trust myself to answer. After a minute or two had passed, he told his medical assistant that he did not know what I wanted since I would not open my mouth and say anything.
As a nurse I have met my share of unprofessional doctors, but Dr. Biama is the most unprofessional of them all. AVOID HIM AT ALL COSTS!!
Dr Richard Biama is my hero. It took 5 doctors before i got mi hip replacement. Im so bless And lucky he took my case. I cant thank him enough. He is fast, direct, very professional , he gave my life back:) thank you Dr Biama, and staff!:)
This doctor is one of the worse doctors I have ever come across He was not rude like many comments said, but he was so freaky, like he was on drugs. He seemed to know his work, but what you told him might as well be ignored, as his opinion only seemed to matter and he downplayed my injury to basically old age and wear and tear, when I'm not that old, and clearly my health problem was caused from something other than simple wear and tear. If I had something more serious I would never let this doctor do surgery on me. I will not return to this doctor, nor will I recommend him to anybody, or where he sometimes works, Arrowhead Orthopedics.
Best orthopedic surgeon you could ask for! Has been our doctor for about 20 years and treating my husband's many breaks and on of mine. Perfect recovery, even when the surgery was difficult. Total confidence and trust in Dr. Biama.
Dr. Biama lies to patients. Hides the fact that he sees cancer on the right kidney of patient, operates twice on shoulder, still did not repair the original breaks. Exposed patients body open tto the air. Which has been know to spread cancer. Dr. Biama was wrong and in not telling patient was he saw on MRI's and read what was written by the specialist. Doctors need to learn to listen to patients. Dr. Biams should not be allowed to operate on humans.
I would not let any surgeon operate on me besides Dr. Biama (Dr. Graham is a close second). He is a true professional and spends his vacation time in medical conferences learning new/better techniques. I've had a total left shoulder arthoplasty (joint replacement), a hip replacement, and numerous minor foot surgeries. This man's surgery work is comparable to an artist. Yeah, his bedside manner does need work but he is a great guy once you get to know him. I'd much rather have an extremely talented surgeon with an attitude working on me rather than a "nice guy" doing average surgery work. I know he is supposed to be retiring soon but I have one other surgery to done. Please do not retire quite yet, Dr. Biama.
This is a very capable surgeon with the worst bedside manor of any doctor I have ever met. He is arrogant and nasty, unreasonable and throws temper tantrums if it soots his mood. I don't care how good he is he is not without his share of post op complications. He does not listen to you he only expects you to bow down and treat him like the god he thinks he is. I would not recommend this guy.
Dr. Biama is our hero. In his own unique style and verbiage he was able to convince our stubborn 88 yr. old mother to have her hips replaced. Even though she was extremely reluctant she wisely chose to trust him when he told her he could restore her life. He knew how much pain she was enduring which motivated him to help her. With much joy and happiness we are happy to report he accomplished what he said he was going to do. And approximately a year later her life and mobility has resumed in a pain free manner. He took wonderful care of her; along with his medical knowledge, skills and attention she will not be wheel chair bound. We will always be grateful, thank you, thank you, thank you….
