Review of Dr. Baumgartner Jr
Humble, TX |
I understand everyone has been affected by the hurricane. However, Dr. Baumgartner's is always brushing off their patients. When I called today because I'm in danger of running out of medicine, the receptionist said I'd have to call back on Tues (and it's Thursday) because they're doing "triage" today. C'mon! It's a pain mgmt center. What are they triaging? Just another example of poor management. Skip this doctor.

Review of Dr. Baumgartner Jr
Spring, TX |
The most caring doctor who truly cared to help me with my condition and not just give me a pill. Extremely knowledgeable in the areas of pain management and up to date on treatment options. This is not a pill mill clinic. This is a clinic where the doctor truly cares and manages pain. I've had several procedures done that have allowed me to live a new life with much less pain. Dr. Baumgartner always takes his time with me and addresses my concerns and questions.

Review of Dr. Baumgartner Jr
Houston, TX |
The wait is usually 2-3 hours after your appointment time. There is only one nurse practitioner that knows what she is doing, so it is hard to get an appointment with her. Apart from the front desk, most of the staff are rude and should not be working with patients in severe pain.

Review of Dr. Baumgartner Jr
Houston, TX |
Dr. Baumgartner dismissed my car accident injuries after a 5 minute physical assessment and without reviewing my previous medical records because he treats cancer patients and they're much worse off than me. He was also very curt and cut my responses to his questions off to move to the next question. The staff was great, but I was in the office for 4.5 hours.

I had no problem with Dr. Baumgartner, himself. Unfortunately, I only saw him twice in a year and a half. I would usually see other staff members. The office staff is the worst. Regardless of always arriving at least 15 minutes prior to my appointment, I would always have at least an hour wait. My final visit was my final due to the office staff. I was told that the wait would be 20 minutes and that I had 3 others before me. Almost 2 hours later, after seeing 6 others pass me up, the....

Dr. Baumgartner is the only board certified anesthesiologist with a pain management fellowship that I know of in this area. All of the others are just family practice doctors who don't know how to do the advanced procedures that helped so much. As a side note, Dr. Baumgartner is the only one who has ever given me a totally painless IV with no bruises afterward - it is really amazing!

Dr. Baumgartner is fine but you will rarely see him and instead see PA or NP. Office staff cannot seem to get paperwork done on time. For example, office told me one hour before a scheduled procedure that they didn't have approval from the insurance company even though they had 3 weeks to get that approval. Another instance was not getting return to work form submitted even though I provided the form 8 work days before the procedure.
