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.
