the doctor was very thorough and explained everything in detail.
Dr Fadakar was awesome and made me feel comfortable. He answered my questions and was very comforting. He was very thorough. I really liked him a lot!
Dr. Fadakar and the staff are efficient and obviously enjoy working with the child and family. They are prompt and thorough in responding to CHP messages.
Dr. Fadakar is very friendly, but he did not do an exam at the kidney transplant clinic appointment. He only did a blood pressure and talk .
very easy going and down to earth. he gets to the child's level and doesn't make the child go outside of his/her comfort level.
we absolutely love Dr Fadokar!!
The care was exceptional! The doctors greeted my son and interacted with him. They genuinely enjoyed what they were doing, and it showed!
The doctor shows concern for my health and when my blood work numbers are not in the range they should be he ran tests to be sure whether it is a concern that needs to be addressed. Also when my blood pressure was higher than normal, he sent me home with a monitor to be sure if my medication will need to be adjusted.
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!
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!
Doctor has great soft skills, that's needed in today's healthcare world. Thank you for the great service.
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.
