I have been seeing dr. Badger for a very long time and I have great confidence in her.
After reviewing the doctor notes from my visit I noticed that there was a discrepancy between when she verbally told me when to return (1 year) and the notes indicating 6 mos. so I wrote Dr. Badger a message through "My Health" to ask her to correct the error in the notes due to wanting to avoid problems with my RX refills once 6 mos. has passed. A few days have passed, I have yet to receive a response from her. I'm not sure if she reads her messages or has just been too busy to respond?
I love Dr Badger she is great, she always makes me feel very comfortable.
There was some confusion about how to procure the brace that the doctor recommended.
I had a good experience.
I would recommend Dr. Badger HIGHLY to anyone I know and your facility and Dr. Badger's assistant Kennedy is wonderful!
Dr. Badger is wonderful.
I realize that you made room for me in an already busy schedule because my Dermatologist requested an emergency appointment but I felt like I was an irritation to the Doctor and she didn't seem very compassionate. I was very disappointed as I have had outstanding care throughout the Stanford system so far.
Dr Ojai is avery caring and knowledgeable. Takes time with explanations and listens carefully to questions and concerns. Excellent "bedside" manner. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Badger was great!
Dr. Badger is an excellent doctor. She is highly knowledgeable and treated me with great respect and care. I did not feel rushed or talked down to; Dr. Badger took time to assess my concern, and discuss treatment with me. OH, and she smiled. My primary care never smiles. Makes a world of difference on how a patient feels, especially when talking intimately about one's body to practically a stranger.
Both doctors were very nice and thorough. the first doctor made me feel comfort i and like he really cared about my concerns and wanted to help me . they both explained my treatment plan
I have very good experience with Dr Badger and her assistant. Thank you for the opportunity to have medical care from Dr Badger.
Dr. Badger is the best...She makes you feel like you're her only patient. She remembers that my husband has had cancer. She remembers that we go to France. She is so genuinely kind, patient in telling me what to do and makes me feel very comfortable in an awkward position! She's my favorite doctor of any that I have. What a dear person she is.
Dr. Badger is very thoughtful and listens very well.
Dr. Badger is wonderful-highly knowledgable, but also warm and caring. So fortunate to have her as my provider!
I have been suffering from some issues for 3+ years. Dr. Badger was curt, overly-schedule oriented and didn't listen to my concerns. I was so frustrated, I started crying. Even after that, her tone was cold and her language was hurtful and dismissive. I found my follow-up phone call with her no different. She was only concerned with the immediate and brushed me off. I am in my mid-forties and have seen many doctors over many years and found Dr. Badger to be one of the worst. It's clear I will get no help from her and am now actively seeking other caretakers.
Dr. Badger was clear, caring, so gentle. She always makes me feel like she has all the time in the world to hear my concerns. She is wonderful.
Dr. Badger is one of Stanford's finest physicians! We can not imagine a better dermatologist.
Dr. Badger is at the top of the charts! She is very warm and friendly and immediately makes her patient feel at ease. She is very competent, intelligent and one of my very favorite doctors.
Dr Badger is an exceptional doctor. She excels at her field and also has great bedside manners. I am confident in her care
Dr Badger always greets me, asks me how I am doing/feeling, and makes me feel welcome. She then examines my skin areas and tells me how I have advanced (or not) since my last visit. This time we discussed in detail my medications and how I could discontinue one of them.
Dr Badger is excellent
Dr. Badger is the best. Simply the best.

Dr Badger is one of the best Doctors I have ever had. in terms of medical expertise and compassionate professional care she is tops.
She is wonderful, experienced, knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate. One of the best doctors I've had!
Provider did not seem interested in, nor had time for, my information about my condition or any of my questions (and I only had two questions). Perhaps more time is needed for appointments? Further, I was told that my question was due to me being anxious, which wasn't fair. Mental health status should never be used against a patient or to make a patient feel any lesser.
Dr. Badger makes you feel so comfortable, is so personable & professional. She remembered that my husband had had cancer & asked about him. These are all stars as Dr. Badger is just fabulous.
I am so impressed with the both the doctor's and nurse practioner's awareness of & concern for my problem and the kindness they showed.
Her explanations were clear & the treatment brought immense relief - even tho there's no cure as yet.

After I left my office visit, my incision kept bleeding. I was nervous about returning to the office. The receptionist, notified the resident and medical student, whom took me back into the treatment room. After reassessing the biopsy site, they applied a pressure bandage, and the bleeding stopped. I was amazed and grateful the professional care by everyone in the office.

Dr. Joanna Badger is one of the most fantastic physicians I have ever know and, in my case, that is a great many. She just called me twice to make sure I understood my medication schedule. I'm getting weepy just thinking about her and the care and concern she has shown me in managing a difficult condition. Stanford is very fortunate to have this amazing physician on its staff.
Dr. Badger is a very caring doctor and followed up with timely phone calls to check on me and prescribe medications.
Dr. Badger is always courteous, compassionate and thorough!

Dr. Badger is great! She is caring and helped me through some challenging health issues. Her nurse, Melissa, is nice and responds promptly to e-mail.
concerned, caring and informative. always polite and considerate
I wish you had a column labeled "outstanding" because that is the treatment and caring that I receive from Dr. Badger and her staff.
I got good instructions about the medications I am to take but there were a LOT of them and I expected them to be in the doctor's notes to me but they were not. I now can't remember a lot of the precautions she told me about.
Dr Badger is wonderful!
Dr Badger and her RN assistant are giving the best care with a lot of professional compassion and kindness. I had the problem more than 10 years, until I was exampled and treated by Dr Badger. Her treatment was decisive and completely, I am completely cured now.
Dr. listened to me and answered all my questions. Love my dr.
Superb clinician!
Physicians were excellent in all areas.
Courtesy - good, but not friendly at all. Dr. Badger did not take me seriously. Acne condition does not seem to be important for her. Pretty snobbish. Disappointing.
Very pleased with Dr. Badger. A very gracious and thoughtful physician. She carefully listened to my history, did a very thorough exam and then discussed her thoughts and findings with me. Privacy was of utmost respected. I am an RN and once she realized that, she used more medical terminology. I came away feeling understood, uplifted because for the first time in 18 months of pain and discomfort I had new information and an intervention I could use to Rx.
Dr. Badger is outstanding in every respect.
Dr. Badger is remarkable.
LOVE DR BADGER!!!Melissa was awesome too!
Dr. Badger is exceptionally considerate and thorough. She inspires trust. She discusses possibilities and asks questions. She and her nurse even went out of their way to adjust Rx's based on my coverage. Moreover, the doctor called me the next day with additional information and medication recommendations. She was patient and caring. I am impressed with her as a person as well as a physician.
Dr. Badger is a great doctor and cares deeply for my condition. I feel very lucky to be treated by her.

I see Dr. Badger every 6 months for about the past 7 or 8 years. SHe is always excellent and very personable. I always enjoy and like for the residents and even medical students to provide the initial appointment. This year was Paige, a 3 year medical student. She was extremely confident and very capable. I like to invest my appointments with the next generation of doctors. My appointment is not any less by seeing the residents or students. In some ways it is better, having two people look me over. I want to let them gain experience from me. I have full confidence with the students, residents, and Dr. Badger. I actually look forward to this appointment every 6 months.
Dr. Badger is the best!
