Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Baumgartner "Provide patient-centered, quality, accessible health care for patients of all ages with ear, nose and throat problems. Because every patient is different, I strive to tailor my approach accordingly. I believe there are certain things that all patients have in common. These include the desire to have an understanding physician/surgeon who is first willing to listen to what is important to the patient. Other desires we have in common are for a careful examination, for any testing as necessary and that the physician provide excellent care and allow time for explanation and questions. My goal is to exceed these common expectations and to treat every patient as I would one of my own family members."
