“I had rotator cuff arthroscopic surgery, and I am well on my way to recovery. Dr. Baddour is very compassionate, very professional, and took the time to set me at ease as he thoroughly explained everything and answered all my questions. He did surgery my other shoulder ten years ago, and I had fantastic results. His staff and the physical therapy team are excellent. I highly recommend him.”

“Dr. Baddour is everything, plus, what you would expect in a care provider. He is professional, thorough and compassionate to your needs. The only reason I gave a 5-star rating is that there are no more stars to rate higher. He takes the time to explain and listen. I highly recommend that any that he instructs to take in all he has to offer. He indeed is the consummate professional.”

“A caring and attentive physician who held my hand while I underwent the effects of the anesthesia. Don't know if Dr. Baddour does this before all his surgeries but keeping my hand in his certainly put all of my apprehensions to rest. That memory of my hand in his, while we waited for the anesthetic to take effect, was with me the minute I awoke in recovery. Also, during my first appointment, Dr. Baddour listened to my description of the pain associated with moving my arm, which I'm sure was nowhere near the pain other patients have experienced, but he understood the limitations placed upon my daily activities and chose not to put off surgery until my symptoms became worse. As a result of his surgical expertise, the excellent therapist I saw during post-surgery, and simple yoga stretches done at home, I have regained nearly full range of motion of my right arm and remain pain free; except for the arthritis in that shoulder, which had no part in my original reason to seek treatment. Thank you, Dr. Baddour. You are the best!”

“Dr. Baddour is very thorough in every way. He explains in depth the procedure. Dr. Baddour answers all questions and makes sure you understand. He is caring and compassionate. All the hospital staff will tell you he’s a great surgeon. The recovery is slow he encourages therapy for the best outcome possible. I would choose him again should I require additional surgery!”

“Dr. Baddour is a highly regarded professional by me and all my friends who receive his care. He goes to great lengths to discuss medical solutions in layman terms. Dr. Baddour exudes compassion and enough humor to brighten a visit. His staff is equally considerate and helpful. He is adept at dismissing patient anxiety and getting patient into a comfort zone that is acceptable. He builds trust with any patient. My friends attest to this, as do I. His surgery and follow up are thorough. He even provides a bonus : a DVD of the surgical procedure for those who can stomach the viewing!!!! I would highly recommend Dr. Baddour with no reservation.”
