Have had to come here with relative several times Office opens at 9am Dr. Badewa never shows up until 10am or later. If you don’t get here by nine you’ll be here all day. This is ridiculous wish I could give less stars than one
Very nice staff
My husband went to see Dr. Badewa and at first everything was great. The problems we experienced after leaving this office were crazy. Our prescription insurance needed a prior authorization from Dr. Badewa’s office. For THREE DAYS the office staff told me the office manager had to fill it out and she wasn’t in until the last 2 hours of the work day each of the three days?? On the third day I finally just drive to the office and had to sit in the lobby until they faxed over this authorization form. I thought great it’s done...no, not at all. My insurance company didn’t receive this fax. So I had to keep calling for 2 days. At that point, Dr. Badewa got on the phone with me and told me that he would talk to the prescription insurance company but not me and to stop calling. Fast forward to a 5 days later, I was informed by my insurance company after they called the office several times that not only was the doctors office sending the prior authorization to THE WRONG INSURANCE COMPANY but they also weren’t filling out the form correctly. ...After all was said and done, Dr. Badewa got money from our insurance company for seeing my husband but my husband never received the prior authorization from this doctor or the office staff and had to pay $100 out of pocket for the medication.So, if you are looking to be seen by a doctor and office staff that will dismiss you, disrespect you, and belittle you as soon as the door closes behind you this office is the perfect place for you.
The staff were great but the doctor did not listen to anything I said. I have had fibromyalgia for years and he tells me my pain is caused from lack of sleep. Yes that makes it worse but that is not the cause. I have to go get my medical records from previous doctor myself and he "doesnt know" and pain doctors to refer me to. I have to find one myself smh
Very knowledgeable... explain s and gives choices
Very rude people
I really enjoyed my experience. The office staff is very warm and friendly. Dr. Badewa and his staff has first class bed side manner. They not only listen to you, but they empathize as well. He helped me with my issue and I thank God for him.
God put him here to do his work!
Terrible doctor he does not listen to anything he makes his assumptions based off of how fast he can get you out of there
Awesome Doctor!! They have been treating me for years and I’m always satisfied! I would highly recommend him.
Great Primary care doctor =, the office is warm and friendly !
My family have been using Dr. Badewa for over five years. He is the most caring Doctor I have ever known. He made a few house calls for me when I was suffering from migraine headaches and could not move, and for my aged mother multiple times. I will recommend his services to anyone.
The office staff are very friendly and caring ppl I love the atmosphere in the office. I frist met Dr Badewa in the ER at Cooper Green hospital his bedside manners where wonderful. So after my Dr left Cooper Green and I moved to Bessemer he became my doctor and I am very very pleased with him so if you are in need of a good Dr he's your man
Does not actively listen. If a patient expresses pain and trouble with day to day activities/working due to an accident then who are you as a physician to say a patient feels otherwise or your pain is not that bad? I cry every morning just getting out of bed and this physician here states it's "not that bad."...very rude. Will not be returning. I hate my primary care is out of the office this week. But I couldn't wait cause I was hurting all weekend and this morning
I love this doctors office. The staff is very nice and professional.
First visit with Dr. very long wait left in back for a long time,offered samples didn't receive any never really wrote very much down. Stated they would get back with us on blood work has been over 6 weeks still haven't heard anything.
They have posted operation hours and do not require an appointment. We have shown up at the office during these hours of operation only to be told that the doctor is not there or has already left. Mind you this is hours before they close. I would highly recommend calling before you go to make sure someone is there to see you. It has also happened that we went up there and his doctor was not there and we had to see a doctor we have never seen before and is unfamiliar with our case.
Over the last 20 years I've had 18 knee surgeries, 9 on EACH knee. My orthopedic surgeon and pain management doctor are 2 of the BEST in Birmingham. Well, AFTER Social Security got my disability claim, 20 years of records from those 2 doctors, and, written, detailed confirmation for both, Social Security sais to get my disability that I have to see Dr. Badewa, and HE has to file a report agreeing with my other 2 doctor's assessments, and after only 1 brief visit no less..... This, AFTER I read on here that he complains about getting chronic pain patients...... Not looking forward to seeing this guy AT ALL.
No I would not like to use this Doctor again! After explaining my medical issues, Dr. Badewa's response was " I don't know why they keep sending me chronic pain patients, I don't do chronic pain." He showed no bedside manner or concern for my well being! I was given a prescription for pain and he left the room. No advice, no follow up, no nothing!!! I am a young healthy mother of three who desperately needs to get back in the work force to provide for my children. And I was treated like a drug user looking to score. Which is not the case. I am simply seeking quality care from a quality professional doctor!
Dr.Badewa is a real good doctor. He allowed and considered my opinons and he listened to what I had to say. He guided me away from one drug that another dr. had prescribed to a better, safer medication. I highly reccomend Dr. Badewa to anyone.
