Dr. Badia is a wonderful surgeon. Very knowledgeable and great with his patients. His office, especially Rafael at the reception, also goes above and beyond in treating his clientele.
I had elbow surgery on 03/14:2024, Dr Badia informed me of the procedure and gave me confidence. After 2 months, I have regain motion. I will fully recommend Dr. Badia.

Going to see Dr. Badia turned out to be a life-changing decision. For months, I struggled with relentless shoulder pain that robbed me of sleep and joy in my daily activities. The entire team at the center greeted me with warmth and empathy from the moment I arrived, making me feel at ease. Dr. Badia took the time to really listen and understand my issues before treating me with a corticosteroid injection. I was astounded to wake up the next morning feeling a significant relief in pain, and that night, I had the best sleep I can remember in a very long time. I’m deeply grateful to Dr. Badia and his wonderful team for not just treating my shoulder, but for giving me back my quality of life. Thank you for the miracle of comfort and care!

I am a medical graduate from India. During my rotation, I had the privilege to work with one of the best upper extremity specialists in the field, Dr. Alejandro Badia. Witnessing the efficiency and time-saving approach of having all patient care facilities under one roof was truly remarkable. Dr. Badia's clinic, surgery center, physical therapy center, and walk-in urgent care, "orthoNOW," make it easy and convenient for patients to receive the care they need. Dr. Badia's book on the US healthcare system, written during the pandemic, provides invaluable insights into the challenges patients face when accessing care. His unique perspective as an orthopedic specialist sheds light on the larger issues in the healthcare system and the need for change. As someone who is foreign to this system, I found his book to be an eye-opening experience. I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Badia and his incredible staff for making my rotation an unforgettable experience. It is clear that they are passionate about their work and committed to providing the best care possible.

I have been a long time a patient of Dr. Alejandro Badia. I consider him the best in the world if you have any problem with your hands or shoulders. He has treated my daughter, my wife and myself with different illnesses related to those extremities. We could not have been in better hands. He has always been available to us no matter the circumstances, day or night. I consider him to have the most qualified, courteous and most professional staff working for him. I wish this Government would take in consideration the suggestions offered by Dr. Badia in his book to solve the present healthcare crisis that we are confronting in our nation today. —————————————————————————- On Wednesday April 24, 2024 I was admitted to the hospital emergency room with tremendous shoulder pain. They took an X-ray and gave me two injections for the pain that worked minimally. I went home and called Dr. Badia for an appointment. In record time the next day, on Thursday April 25th at 3:00 PM I was at Dr. Badia’s office - I was treated promptly, courteously and as always, extremely professionally. After examining me and taking X-rays, he performed a magnificent block of my left shoulder. Next morning I had no pain and I could move my shoulder. Normally it takes two days for this type of result. I have no doubt that Dr. Badia is the best hand and shoulder surgeon in the world. Thank you again Dr. Badia. If you ever have a hand or shoulder problem, please do not hesitate, go to Dr. Badia, he is able to do what no other surgeon can do. Dr. Badia is the best in the world!

Magnífica experiencia. El Dr Badia un médico de primer nivel, llegue con la muñeca destrozada y luego de 3 meses me encuentro nuevamente por ingresar al agua a surfear. El staff del Dr Badia muy amable, Susan es la persona que hace que las cosas sucedan.
Edith Perez
My husband had a distal radius fracture. He went to Dr. Badia and is so grateful that he did. He had surgery the next day after his visit. Within 3 weeks was able to remove the cast. And he had 3 more weeks of occupational therapy, now he nearly has all motion back. The process was a lot faster thanks to Badia. My husband also had tattoos on his wrists which he attached back together perfectly and you can barely see the scar. We 100% recommend seeing Badia, he is very professional, his staff is great, and he is very talented.
