excellent health care service and very courteous staff...

July 27, 2020 10:02 AM

Dr. Baddi was already scheduled for regular visit when the need for cancer surgery arose and he needed to give cardiac clearance. His participation in pre-surgery prep was fine. Nurses and petty bureaucrats at Irving & Western facility were rude, obstructionist and abysmal in phone communications. Pre-surgery prep should NOT include unnecessary stress such as this, need to turn to other physician's assistants to seek help, get authorizations.

July 24, 2020 11:28 AM

Very relax and tot he point, well explain from greeter, receptionist, nurse and doctors.

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

I am not a big fan of the "mega office" setup at the facility. Although I know it costs the hospital less to run the practice this way, I feel like I get less personalized service. I also worry about getting timely appointments when I have to speak with people who are not on my doctor's staff as they tend to be less empathetic and usually can't "fit you in" when you really need an appointment.

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

I respect him and his opinions.

January 15, 2019 6:00 PM

very good
