The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Baddour.
“I have been a patient of Dr. Baddour for many years. Have always had good experiences and results when I have seen him. Have a lot of confidence in his abilities and knowledge.”
– Cloelia M.
“Dr. Baddour is lovely, takes time to explain everything. You never feel rushed when you see him.”
– Sharon P.
“Using my right shoulder was increasingly painful. Dr. Baddour had my shoulder x-rayed and manually manipulated it as well. The diagnosis was arthritis induced degeneration, and Dr. Baddour administered a cortisone shot and prescribed physical therapy. My ability to rotate my shoulder, reaching up and back, has increased, and the muscles were supporting my shoulder have been strengthened. I must commend Matt Cabbage at Provision Physical Therapy for his excellent guidance and treatment!”
– Deanna L.
“Dr. Baddour is so professional and cares about his patients. At every appointment, he spent time with me, took time to answer my questions and never seemed rushed (and I know he had patients waiting.) There is nothing good about rotator cuff surgery Except to have the best orthopedic surgeon - and I did!”
– Judy A.
“I was seen as scheduled when making my appointment; shoulder x-rays were done, I was evaluated and scheduled for an MRI. After the results were obtained, physical therapy and a home exercise plan were prescribed. I adhered to the schedule for both and fully recovered from my shoulder injury.”
– Carolyn H.
“Dr. Baddour is kind, caring, and takes his time explaining about the surgery.”
– Lynnette P.
“I had no problems at all. My shoulder was repaired, and I feel it is a great success. The staff from register girls to the therapy folks were great. If I need more surgery at any time, I will contact the University Orthopedic Surgeons. I could not be treated any better. Thank You!!”
– Shirley O.
“Dr. Baddour was able to diagnose and correct the problem with my right shoulder in a very efficient manner.”
– David R.
“He was a professional and very competent doctor. I had a significant recovery and therapeutic service. I would sure use him again and recommend him to all my family and friends.”
– Cecelia G.
“I was extremely impressed with the whole experience from my doctor to the staff to the hospital. Everyone explained everything they were getting ready to do. Everyone made sure I, as well as my family, were comfortable with each procedure. I really can not say enough about the excellent care I received.”
– Shirley S.
“Excellent highly medical professional surgeon, who expressed his protocols expected with passion made my journey as my encourager to finish well (experienced needed two shoulder surgeries)! Dr. Baddour, I am forever grateful for your compassion. Thank you.”
– Sandra S.
– Joseph C.
“Dr. Baddour was very thorough in his exam, listened and explained well and prescribed physical therapy that is helping me regain flexibility in my shoulder.”
– Kathryn R.
“Dr. Baddour operated on my left shoulder after I buckled my collarbone and shoulder blade. It completely healed, and physical therapy returned my full use of that shoulder. He also did arthroscopic surgery on my left shoulder in March. Dr. Baddour always took the time to explain everything thoroughly in a sincere, caring manner whether in his office or surgery settings. Excellent bedside manner and very professional. We highly recommend him. He also operated on my wife, Carrol, for torn rotator cuff surgery and also had great results, but with a longer healing process. The physical therapy was terrific, too.”
– Ronald A.
“I recently had the opportunity to experience Dr. Baddour's expertise first hand! I had a torn rotator cuff which Dr. Baddour repaired. Dr. Baddour was very professional and explained the process in great detail from beginning to end. There were no surprises as to the progression of the physical therapy and healing process. He described the time required to heal (not fun!) and what to expect during the long healing process. Should a family member or I ever need shoulder surgery again, we would certainly return to see Dr. Baddour.”
– Sondra O.
“Dr. Baddour is one of the kindest, most professional medical personnel I have ever encountered. I am sad to learn of his fast approaching retirement. I have seen other doctors in practice, and I have been very pleased with my care. Also, staff personnel has been exceptional.”
– Faye C.
