Dr. Giovanni Baula is a superb doctor. I will not see anyone but him in his office. I wish he had earlier hours in line with my job or late hours at least one or two times a month. He genuinely is concerned about his patients. He is patient and very warm his patients.

in St Petersburg, FL |
I was referred to Dr. Baula after having a poor experience with my previous PCP. I was a medical train wreck, with a several serious issues that were previously unmonitored and out of control. After seeing Dr. Baula on a regular basis for over a year, I am a new person. My health has improved dramatically under his supervision. His staff is amazingly easy to communicate and work with. He and his staff always take the time to listen to and adequately address all of my concerns. Highly recommend!

Been with him for 13 years. He has always known what to do when I need him.
Safety Harbor, FL |
Dr. Baula is one of the best most friendly and considerate doctors I've had the pleasure of dealing with over the last year+ of chronic sickness and hospitalization in various facilities. He's been very quickly and easily reached when necessary, and I don't feel rushed when talking to him like with some docs. Of course some credit belongs to his associates and the nurses too, but I've been getting much better under his care than I had been under another doctor at a different facility recently...

I have recommended Dr. Baula to friends and family. He knowledgeable, professional, and very caring. I have entrusted my entire family to Dr. Baula.

Awesome, caring doctor.

By the time we found Dr Baula, my husband's health status could be described as nothing short of a train wreck. Dr Baula took his time, listened to us, and read through voluminous records. He quickly prioritized my husband's care and his health is now turning around. I received my nursing license 29 years ago, and I can honestly say that I have never met a more compassionate and capable physician, who truly cares about his patients. His staff is also very courteous and helpful. Thanks, Dr Baula!

Dr Baula is a friendly Dr that puts you at ease and listens to your concerns and needs. His advice is good. He has been very helpful in trying to find a solution to my back problems.
St Petersburg, FL |
Dr. Baula is a very professional, friendly and genuinely concerned with patients. Nothing but positive things to say about him. HOWEVER, his staff is incapable of following through on requests. Even asking for a medical assistant always goes to voicemail. The message never states the name of the medical assistant, and never get a call back. That part of his office can really ruin the experience regarding the staff professionalism & rudeness.
in Seminole, FL |
I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Baula. He is a very caring physician and is very thorough every time I see him. I would recommend Dr. Baula to anyone that is looking for a physician.

Very friendly. Every question and concern I had was answered with complete knowledge. He is very knowledgable and compassionate and I felt very comfortable from the first visit to his office.

Great Physician Caring Compassionate
in St Petersburg, FL |
Dr. Baula is exceptional. He provides high quality and effective care for my elderly mother and has been her primary physician for years. He is attentive to specific health issues both small and large. Dr. Baula's ability to communicate with both the non elderly, elderly and family members is excellent. He always explains the medical necessity for prescribed medications in addition to importance of preventive interventions.
