this visit was a consultation visit for severe neck pain. my only negative is that it took 3 weeks to get the appointment. according to Dr Baum I do not need neck surgery at this time. if I was able to have this consult the same week as the MRI I would have been able to move in another direction to get rid of the pain.

very good

August 29, 2018

Dr Baum was very professional and knowledgeable

August 27, 2018

I was so impressed when I was called back to the care room BEFORE my scheduled time and Dr. Baum was in seeing me right on time. This just doesn't happen at other offices. VERY IMPRESSED and thank you to Dr. and Staff for respecting my time as much as I respect theirs.

August 15, 2018

Dr. was very knowledgeable, however he was kind of "rigid". I was a little intimidated.

July 25, 2018

able to understand what doctor said, reasonable wait time.

July 25, 2018

Dr Baum was very thorough in diagnosing in what was going on with my lower back and thigh. In fact I had seen him 15 years ago helped me with lower back issues gave me meds for inflammation and go to pt. Other doctors in my valley were ready to do major surgery on my back. Dr Baum had helped me for 15 years not having to go down that path, so therefore that's the reason why I contacted his office again, and very happy I got to see him again.

July 16, 2018

I felt that he was going by the previous provider's notes...Dr Patrick.smit!h.and I didn't communicate.very.well and I think that dr. Baum.was.influenced by that. i think.Dr.baum didnt listen to.me. As it turns out the pain in my leg is.from shingles, the blisters didn't show up until Saturday 7/21

July 13, 2018

Dr. Baum was very polite and efficient. He doesn't talk down to you.

July 02, 2018

he really listened gave me good input and actively helping me get to the cause of my pain.
