One of the best doctors I have ever seen. Dr. Baum is the greatest.
Patient | October 30, 2017

Dr Baum is excellent. He takes time to discuss issues with me and we are partners in determining what can and should be my treatment plans. I am totally satisfied with him as a provider
Patient | October 30, 2017

I like Dr. Baum. He is friendly and interjects some low-key human into the visit but also seems very knowledgeable of his medical field.

Completely satisfied with this provider.
Patient | July 27, 2017

Dr. Baum came into the exam room right away to see me. He introduced himself and spent some time getting to know me and reviewing my medical history. He explained my medical issue in a way that was easy to understand, and laid out my health plan moving forward. He allowed adequate time for me to answer questions. Dr. Baum was very personable and had excellent bedside manner. He proceeded to follow up with me promptly via MHAV after my Labs were done.
