Patient Reviews (1)
in Long Beach, CA |
Dr. Baumgartner has horrible bedside manners. He is also negligent with patient follow up and will blame his entire staff before taking responsibility for his own negligence. Dr. Baumgartner did not notify me until eight months after my surgery that a tumor he removed was cancerous. By the way, the biopsy prior to surgery showed that the tumor was benign so I was in shock when I received a certified letter in the mail from Dr. Baumgartner eight months later telling me that I had cancer.
