Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Excellent Skills and Manner
I've been under the care of retinal specialists for 5 years. Not until I relocated to MA and was seen by Dr. Baumal did I meet a decisive professional who listened to my vision difficulties then assess and move to surgery. For the first time in years, I can play the piano, drive at night and feel competent to travel. She's the best. Don't hesitate to become her patient or to recommend to family or friends.

Dr. Baumal saved my eyesight. Literally. Twice. She is a thoughtful, knowledgeable caring, experienced artist. And while I am not the best patient, she covers for me because she IS the best physician. You are so lucky if she is looking after you.
