Ratings for Dr. N. Michael Baddar
This guy is a real jerk. Lots of hype about drug testing and drunk driving when he himself was sanctioned by the medical board for "Tramadol intoxication"/ non responsive, leaving the ER Against Medical Advice. Try Bayview Physicians occupational health instead, or get a new employer...
He told me "all you DO is complain" and "we'll send you to an orthopedist to see if you're a basket case". Wow. I am having a spinal cyst removed and L4-L5 fused. And he wanted to put me on full duty. The strongest pain meds he said he could prescribe worked for about 3 months. It has been 13 months since I saw him and told him I was hurt and in a LOT of pain. If your injury is work related, I am sure he is compensated to denigrate and intimidate you into not pursuing your pain. 4 weeks of physical therapy for a spinal synovial cyst against my spinal cord. Talk about agony. THEN we did an MRI. I was very angry.
Baddar laughed at my injury, would not allow an MRI for what was determined to be a double neck fracture by another doctor, and insulted me when I complained of pain. If I had allowed myself to be intimidated by his manner, the broken neck may have killed me. Malpractice, anyone?
Dr. Baddar is the poorest excuse for a physician that I have ever encountered. During the course of my last treatment for back sprain his aide applied a tens unit and turned it all the way up. He drastically over prescribed pain meds and muscle relaxers that clearly state do not drive while using but insisted on return to work immediately policy. He makes fun of his patients often laughing at their pain. He was actually professional enough to tell me I was only in pain because I'm old. And he insisted on release to full duty at work because in his words "you work for big company" in spite of the fact that I was still in major pain from a sprained back.
After work injury, baddar's clinic diagnosed bruises and scrapes. Went to a diff dr, 9 xrays and thorough exam show fracture and joint dislocation. Baddar laughed at that diagnoatic, then wrenched my injury around trying to see my 'range of motion'. I told him it hurt and he said, 'that's ok, you can scream in here, go ahead and scream.' Beware if you are on worker's comp!!!
