I was very disappointed with Dr. Bauer. He was very nonchalant about my health. He has the God complex!! I don't think that he took the time to read all of the information that was forwarded to him by my cardiologist. He fat shamed me. I know my size I did not need to hear it multiple times from...Read More

Dr. Bauer serves a free lunch in his clinic. He takes his time to answer every single question and gives each patient his undivided attention. I feel like a valued patient. I was scheduled for a double valve and coronary bypass, and he discovered that I had an underlying heart rhythm called atrial...Read More
