About Us


{Recommendation: Dr. Babak Eghbalieh is the best gastric surgeon out there. His talents, wisdom, skills and abilities are divinely inspired. (a gift from God Himself). Dr. Babak Eghbalieh not only has all of the above, but his attitude, personality, bedside manner and ability to explain the diagnoses, procedures in ways that his patients can clearly understand is amazing. He is very detailed and clearly understands and has compassion for his patients. He is honest and has a way of disarming and comforting his patients. His staff is also very professional, compassionate and understanding.I would recommend and urge anybody with gastric difficulties like mine to see him right away. I have had many other referrals and was told that my condition was inoperable and could only be treated with diet and medication. If anybody tells you this, do not believe it. See Dr. Babak Eghbalieh first. (more…)

{I was diagnosed with cancer on my pancreas and scheduled for Whipple with another surgeon. I was asked to do a second opinion consult with Dr Bobby by my primary medical team. At the time I was not happy about the second opinion. Agreeing to 2nd opinion turned out to be the best decision I’ve made in this journey. I walked out of the consult with such peace and knew moving forward with surgery with Dr. Bobby was the right decision. Dr. Bobby cares for his patients and you feel it on the first visit. I’ve also had to see Dr. Samy and am just so impressed. The bed side manner is just superb! The office staff are all so very kind and caring as well! I would 1000% recommend Dr. Bobby, Dr. Samy and their office!

{My experience with Dr. Eghbalieh has been pleasant from the get go. I was very nervous about the procedure I had to have. Everything went smooth as he assured me it would go. He made sure I was well informed of the outcome after my surgery (splenectomy/partial pancreatectomy). I am in his care for life and wouldn't want anyone else. Thank you Dr. !

{Dr. Babak Eghbalieh saved my life. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in early June, 2020, at which point I was referred to Dr. Eghbalieh. He met me in the hospital as I was recovering from the biopsy and said that he would move fast to assess the situation and develop an aggressive plan of attack. He performed the Whipple procedure on July 6th with outstanding results. In parallel with the surgery he put me on supplements and vitamins to bolster my immune system in preparation for chemo / radiation treatments and enzymes to enhance my ability to absorb nutrients post-surgery. Both of which worked as he predicted, the compromise to my immune system was dampened during the chemo treatments and the enzymes allowed me to absorb more nutrients resulting in weight gain post-surgery. Dr. Eghbalieh is an outstanding surgeon and incredibly knowledgeable of his areas of specialty. He is a very personal guy which makes interacting with him enjoyable. He goes out of his way to ensure that he walks you through all facets of your treatment and spends the time to address questions / concerns. He is available 24/7 and encourages you to call him with any issues. I couldn’t be luckier to have him as a doctor and highly recommend him.

{Hi my name is Drew I would like to say that Dr Sammy saved my life two times I have an infection in my left leg went to the hospital they gave me antibiotics by IV in the emergency room but when they move me up to my room they start giving me pills antibiotic I started hallucinating and seeing all kinds of weird things on the walls I was out of it for a few days. I came to my senses and grab my phone and called Dr Sammy‘s office I told the Lady that answered the phone I really needed to talk to him it was very important. Thank God that he was there he got on the phone and talk to me I ask him why I haven’t seen him he told me that he was not contracted at that hospital anymore but he will come and see me. I went back to my hallucinating and out of it until I felt my blanket being moved off of me and looking up and seeing Dr Sammy‘s face. He went straight to the computer and told the nurses to get anabiotic IV right away. He said that infection went septic and the infection was going through my bloodstream. Without Dr Sammy going out of his way and caring for me I would not be here today!!! So I would like to say Dr Sammy really truly cares for his patients and goes out of his way to take care of them !!!

{On May 23rd I was involved in a near fatal car accident that caused an Aortic Dissection. Three other Doctors said there was nothing they can do for me. Then Doctor Sammy Eghbalieh came in the picture and was able to place a Stent Graft. So many things could have gone wrong but the Dr. made me feel like I can trust him he is such a caring individual. I was truly blessed to meet him in my lowest moments he made me feel secure and assured me he would do it to the best of his ability. Even when I went through more procedures for a leg injury he went out of his way to check on me even after his job was done! After a successful procedure I had so many doubts and questions. On my follow up he answered all the questions and addressed all the concerns before I can even address them myself. He gave me the reassurance that I will be able to return to a normal life. I got nothing but praise for this man!

{My experience with Dr. Eghbalieh was superb. He is the combination of a brilliant mind, a compassionate soul and a loving, kind heart. I was very ill, in a lot of pain and not able to eat or get out of bed, and now I am healing and feeling so much better. My first contact was with his office staff. The receptionist Scarlett was very friendly and professional. I was then able to speak to LaDawn, his office manager. What a wonderful person! She spent a very ample amount of time with me on our initial conversation, helping me to understand what Dr. Eghbalieh does. LaDawn is such a great asset to his staff.

He told me exactly what to expect, including illustrations, and I was relaxed and ready the day of the surgery. I'm still in recovery and he is still following up. Great job, Dr. Bobby.

{I have suffered with digestive problems for nine years and with three Gi's and a Primary doctor none of them were able to help me. With so many testings that were done, they had no clue, and all they did was prescribe antacids! But God Almighty who truly loves and cares for us, gave me Dr. Bobby Eghbalieh ! One consultation and he expertly knew what was wrong with me. With just two tests followed with surgery, I got my life back! Your expertise and genuine care made a big difference. My recovery has been excellent, feeling so good and grateful everyday! My family and I thank you Dr. E ! You are truly a blessing.

{Dr. Eghbalieh is an amazing doctor. I had been suffering from a pancreatic condition for several years. I went to several Hospitals and medical specialist in the Central Valley and in Southern California. I was not able to get a diagnosis for my condition and felt that my only option was to continue to live in pain. I was told that my only option was to manage my pain with pain medication. A friend told me that she knew a former patient of Dr. Eghbalieh’s who had pancreatitis. Dr. Eghbalieh cured her and she was now living pain free. I made a consultation and drove to Los Angeles in search of a cure. Dr. Eghbalieh immediately diagnosed my condition and prepared a medical plan to cure me. Dr. Eghbalieh treated me like a person and not just a patient. He was concerned about the pain that I had been living with for the past two years and quickly scheduled a surgery. During my surgery Dr. Eghbalieh also found a cancerous tumor and removed it. I owe my life to this wonderful doctor. I would recommend Dr. Eghbalieh to anyone who has pancreatitis. I live in the Fresno area and the drive to Los Angeles to get quality treatment was worth it

{Ohh Man did Dr. Eghbalieh change my life for the better!!!! I was barely able to stand...20 seconds I would be in massive pain. Seen 10 doctors none could tell me what was wrong with my legs...Took 10 seconds literally for Dr. Eghbalieh to diagnosis and prepare me for healing...10 seconds no pills, no drugs, no nothing other than accurately diagnosing my vein problems in yes, 10 seconds. I am a new man! Before I could only stand for 20 seconds without incredible life draining pain. Nearly days after following the Doctors medical instructions, I walked my dogs around the block 2x for over an hour and continue to do so now. Yesterday, I walked my dogs around the block for 40 minutes, no pain. Before my first visit to Dr. Eghbalieh, I could not stand for more than 20 seconds. My life is on track for recovery and my face is smiling everyday without the incredible pain I had been dealing with for years...My strength, my body, my mentality, my happiness, my quality of life have all been given back to me! Without seeing Dr. Eghbalieh, my doctors would still be telling me they didn't know what was wrong with me making me go crazy...Now, no more! Back on track with life! Literally a 360 degree return back to life! Trust me, if you are having vein or leg pain, or bruising, or swollen ankles or legs like I have, see Dr.Eghbalieh immediately! He will change you life!

{It's very rare that I leave a review for anyone but Dr. Eghbalieh is exceptional in his craft. He is not only a great medical doctor but he has a genuine concern for humanity and cares for individuals on a personal basis. My mother has been diagnosed with stage four colon cancer, which later spread to her liver .I'm happy to say she is in recovery and grateful that Dr. Eghbalieh came into our lives . His professionalism as a medical doctor is exceptional but his genuine concern and care that he extended to our family is beyond what is required and is so appreciated I actually believe that his compassion has lifted my mothers spirits and healed her in ways medicine couldn't We have seen countless doctors in every field of medicine along this journey I attribute all of her progress to Dr. Eghbalieh. They say love heals all and Dr. Navid Eghbalieh has proven that to be true in my experience along this journey. Theres not enough words to describe my gratitude.

When I searched for Dr. Eghbalieh in Fresno, Ca and found out he moved I tried to use other Dr.'s and medical facilities, I was not treated with the same respect, care, and urgency as with my previous encounter with Dr. E. I was in such pain for so long that I had no desire to live with this excruciating pain any longer. I called my family together to say my goodbyes as I was no longer willing to fight just to stay alive in the pain I was suffering with.
