What People Say About Dr. David Baer, MD
Reply
Everybody in this office was great, from the receptionist to the nurse to Dr. Baer himself. He is well-educated, warm, caring, articulate, and really pays attention to your needs. Best of all, he told me my hernias are so small that he recommends no action at this time...maybe a nerve block later if they pain me too much. He explained his reasoning very clearly. I would definitely use him if I needed surgery, and recommend him to others.

Dr. Baer did my hernia surgery last year. I awoke from the surgery feeling fine. However, after the surgery, I start getting bills from all kinds of places including one from AN ASSISTANT HE NEVER TOLD ME ABOUT. Apparently he wasn't able to do the surgery the way he explained, and someone OUT OF NETWORK assisted. No one from Dr. Baer's office knew about it, and I ended up paying $556 extra. To top it, Laurie in billing was so rude when I inquired about their mistake and my medical bill! AWFUL.
