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."

Very good surgical outcome. I only needed one pain pill. That's pretty awesome.

I found Dr Baumgartner to be very attentive to my needs. He handled my case in a timely manner.
Paradise, CA |
My experience was a very positive one and I chose this doctor based on reviews of friends who had also seen him. I had some really bad sinus problems and he was able to help me tremendously and explained everything and seemed to take the time that many doctor's don't take. I had been to other ENTs before and he was by far the best and would highly recommend him. I am doing great!

I don't feel as though Dr. Baumgartner treated me as he would treat one of his own family members, as he says online. My experiences with him today was, I'd say was mediocre. I've got medi-cal, and appeared to me as though he was treating me according to my health coverage. I've worked in the industry and I know that medi-cal patients are scheduled on certain days, so the doctor knows. He listened, but he also seemed to be waiting until I was finished. He's not a 5 star doctor.

This physician is the only ENT in Paradise.Given my experience with he and his staff, I will make the trip to Chico to see an ENT.This Feather River Hospital affiliated practice did not successfully communicate with FRH Home Oxygen which affected my care.I found this physician conventional, diffident and hackneyed If it isn't in a medical book or something he's seen over and over, he seemed stumped or unwilling to explore imaginative alternatives.Maybe that's because he's the only ENT in town.

I rate Dr. Baumgartner a 10 he is an excellent doctor. He is great with children, performed surgery on both my kids and I always recommend him to family and friends.
