doctor explained everything very well and I felt the diagnostics that he wanted to perform appropriate. I wish I had been referred last year when my son was originally diagnosed with a kidney disorder.
he was very professional but related well to Gabbie. we were very pleased
doc spent plenty of time with us and was very helpful. although he was running a bit late - his staff kept us up to date.
Dr fadakar is amazing very helpful and understanding
We have been very impressed with all of our care at CHP!
very good .
I love the whole team of Medical Dr.s that has provided care for my son!!
he's an amazing dr!
Doctor has great soft skills, that's needed in today's healthcare world. Thank you for the great service.
Dr Fadakar was excellent with my son. He answered all questions that I had regarding test results, and explained what the "plan" was for our next step(s). After we left the office my son and I agreed that we would want to see Dr Fadakar again. He spoke calmly to us and explained things clearly to us. He didn't seem rushed and that time spent with my son was important to him. We were impressed and do intend to book future appointments/follow ups with this doctor. I wish we could find more doctors like Dr Fadakar!
Our doctor was extremely helpful, answered all of our questions, and spent a lot of time with our son. He even was able to get us in for an ultrasound appointment immediately following his appointment. We are very excited and pleased he is our sons kidney doctor.
dr said it was kidney stones. but did not ultrasound, or blood test. he said blood test was done 1/17, and they were good then. so nothing can change in 9 months??? Dr need a course in listening to moms.
Great information and helpfulness in dealing with the problem.
EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE. ALL OF OUR QUESTIONS WERE ANSWERED AND TIME WAS SPENT MAKING SURE WE GOT THE CORRECT DIAGNOSIS.
The doctors and nurse were very good with my son. The only thing I was not happy with is that his apt was at 10am- we did not get called back to the room till 1115am. We sat in the exam room waiting for the doctor till 1230 till I went out the room and asked how much longer it would be. I understand the clinic is busy but I think someone should have come to tell us that the doctor is running behind and give us an EST. Just checking in with patients, makes us feel that we were not forgotten about.
