Yes, VERY concern and let me fell confidence in getting this taken care of w/ doctor.
Patient | February 13, 2017

was more than pleased with the time and interest that was given to me
Patient | January 22, 2017

He did most of the talking & kept repeating the same information. Felt like he did not listen to my questions.
Patient | December 5, 2016

I always leave Dr. Baum's office feeling like I am getting the best of care!
Patient | October 30, 2016

Dr. H. Baum was very good with explaining listening very good bed side manner and medical & professional care!
Patient | September 19, 2016

It was apparent the first time I met with Dr. Baum that he was an excellent match for me. We seem to have the same general personality type, which works so well with me. Dr. Baum has taken the time to learn from me a little about my family and never fails to ask abut a couple of family members. He is an excellent physician and is very easy to talk with in terms that I cmompletely understand. He will have my recommendation any day.
Patient | August 23, 2016

Dr. Baum is always friendly, respectful informative; doesn't rush; genuinely cares about patients.
Patient | August 19, 2016

I called back to request the dr. write a letter (per request of my insurance co.) so I would not have to receive my Rx via mail & he would not write the letter. Our mail delivery is very unreliable & my Rx is for daily use. Not good! Very frustrating!
Patient | July 29, 2016

Everything is good.
Patient | June 15, 2016

When a question arises I always email Dr. Baum & he is very quick to respond.
Patient | June 14, 2016

Knowledge of specialty is evident. Would like a more proactive approach to my care.
Patient | May 9, 2016

Dr. Baum was especially good communicating with my son who has Down syndrome.
Patient | May 1, 2016

Dr. was very helpful to be me.
Patient | April 28, 2016

Doctor wanted to get to know me and tell stories, which was fine - but I thought there was not enough conversation around why I was there.
Patient | April 26, 2016

the only reason I would not likely recommend this provider is the fact that it is a 3 hour drive to see him.
Patient | April 1, 2016

Pleasant experience given my condition.
Patient | April 1, 2016

Dr. Baum made me feel at ease to where I could be honest about my bad eating habits. He made me feel like he knew how to proceed and that he would be following up. I felt like I was in good hands.
Patient | March 15, 2016

Told us things in our son's records that no one had told us before, and basically some of his problems could have been avoided if we had known sooner. Appreciated Dr. Baum being thorough in reading his records, which are quite large.
Patient | February 22, 2016

Outstanding listener. Very compassionate.
Patient | February 15, 2016

Dr. Baum is best provider in endocrinology I've ever had
Patient | January 14, 2016

HE SAID EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED TO HEAR AND HE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I WAS DOING TRYING TO BALANCE MY BLOOD SUGARS.I FEEL CONFIDENT THAT HE WILL TAKE CARE OF ME.
Patient | January 13, 2016

Excellent provider - Very intelligent.
