Find a Dr who is caring and empathetic, not Dr Baum. Mom entered the hospital with breathing issues. When Dr B finally came to the waiting room, she didn't have the grace to admit she was the one responsible for intubating mom, which caused a double perforation, necessitating emergency stomach surgery or she would die of sepsis. Later that week, Dr. B claimed she had tried to find us before this, but we were in that waiting room or by my mother’s side every single day, all day. A hospital rep recorded two similar conversations with my family, during which Dr. B said my mom had “lousy lungs” 6 times within the first 12’, as well as “s**t happens”. . Mom was on a vent for 2 wks before passing away. Personnel in the ICU area remarked that the stomach perforation was a major setback. My family found Dr. Baum to be coarse and utterly lacking in compassion and humility. I still have nightmares about this, 3 1/2 yrs later. Drs need to show compassion during traumatic health events.

Went for my first visit (Waited a month). De Baum listened to my concerns. Then she handed me a sample inhaler. I told her I had previously been on that same inhaler and it didn't help. She ripped open the package and insisted I take my first puff there. Now I know why. She actually billed my insurance for that sample med. omg. Clearly she wasn't interested in helping me, just billing my insurance.
