Dr. Baum is a top-notch OBGYN with great knowledge and a terrific bedside manner. He truly takes time to understand my concerns and explain all my options. He never rushes me and, unlike most of my other doctors, he really takes the time to get to know me. He is smart, caring and thoughtful. I feel like finding clinicians like Dr. Baum is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

I am a new patient of Dr. Baum. He took time to get to know me and thoroughly reviewed my medical records. I appreciate that he provided thoughtful advice as well as his quick follow up to discuss my blood test results. I would highly recommend him to others.

DR. Baum always goes above and beyond in spending time with me during my appointments and explaining everything thoroughly. He never rushes and I always feel better after I leave my appointments. He is a genuine doctor and makes you feel like family. He is extremely knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. Dr Baum throughout my pregnancy has gone beyond in his care for me and my baby. There have been countless times where Dr. Baum assisted me outside of the office. He always makes sure I am comfortable and taken care of. Thank you Dr. Baum. Me and baby E appreciate you!

He’s been my doctor for more than 29 years! He’s a great clinician and person. Unlike most doctors these days, he calls you to discuss results of tests. He’s warm and smart, another rare quality. He’s a wonderful doctor!

Dr. Baum is so kind, straightforward, and caring. He cares for the whole person, mental and physical, not just your gynecological health. He always personally calls me with test results and checks in on my personal life. He makes me feel very comfortable in a typically vulnerable setting and is also a great doctor in terms of keeping me happy and healthy.

Dr. Baum is an amazing doctor. He is supportive, caring, and always takes the time to answer any and all questions. I never feel rushed during my appointments, and I always leave feeling like he helped me better understand my health and put in place a plan for any issues I may be facing. He safely delivered my baby during the height of Covid, and I couldn't be more grateful to have him on my side.

Dr. Baum is an OVER CONFIDENT and a COWARD OB. He and his staff went into the hiding during COVID and did not see me in person for 2 months between 24 to 32 weeks of pregnancy and I suffered pre eclampsia losing my daughter at 32 weeks in the month of may 2020. I had been taking baby aspirin since day 1 of my pregnancy as suggested by my doctor in Canada where I moved from when I was 5 weeks pregnant. First indication of me being at risk of pre eclampsia. Second, protein in urine test. He did not take my urine test for last 2 months to check high protein. Dr. Wharton saw me once in between just to check the fetal heartbeat. No urine test done.She was so scared to even come close to me let alone checking me.Gives me the excuse of cdc guidelines. I have a question for this baboon OB “Did cdc tell him to let his patients die?”Dr. Kunreuther contacted dr. Baum about my high BP, he overlooked it. He gives me expired glucose for GTT. Shame on dr. Baum he did not want to see me often in COVID

I have been a patient of Dr. Baum's since 1993 and will remain his patient as long as he will have me! He has cared for me through four pregnancies and healthy deliveries, taking the time at each and every visit to inquire about my total health. Best. Doctor. Ever!
