Dr. Baras is a sweet heart, my experience with her have been nothing but AMAZING! She delivered my twins, she takes time to listen to all of my concerns and she takes her time to explains things that I dont understand or issues that Iam worried about. She reassure me everything will be okay with different procedures she performed on me, that everything would be okay when I was very scared and worried. She is simply the best. I just love my obgyn dr.

Dr. Baras to me seems to be a sweetheart. She’s very honest and sincere. She’s timeley and helpful. I’m not sure why anyone would give her a negative rating.

Dr. Baras is an OB/GYN that listens when you speak and truly cares to take the time and efforts to help you. I’d just relocated to Balt. area when I got pregnant. Ive had extreme ADD and mild depression since childhood and was struggling to find a local Psych. that was : 1. Taking new patients 2. Taking insurance. I had called 150+ outdated listings w/ no luck. Dr. Baras took great effort to find a psych for me and put me on a safe med in meantime. I am so grateful to be in her care.

dont know what the bad reviews about Signature OB are about, I have loved all of my docs there...DrBaras, Dr. K, Dr. Holsey all amazing. you just have to cycle around and find who you click with. i also love that they are Hopkins docs, which means I know I am in good hands. Dr. Baras did my VBAC and she was so friendly - even at 3am. Also my nurse Stacy on L&D was so awesome, there with me all the way. if I have another baby, I am for sure going to HCGH and Signature.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this woman. She was the doctor we were hoping to get on day of delivery and I thanked my lucky stars she was at the hospital that day. She delivered our twins vaginally (not all will) and I have her to thank for my amazing recovery. I will forever be in love with the woman who brought our twins into the world the best way possible for me. She is kind, thorough, supportive, and just an amazing person. Thank you Dr. Baras!!!

I delivered my 5 child shortly after moving to the Baltimore area. My experience with Dr. Baras was my best to date. She was always prompt, her assistant kelly was so helpful and the didn't mind me bringing my other children to appointments. My delivery was fast and as luck would have it Dr. Baras was on call the night i came in. Will go back for my yearly exam to Signature.
