Dr. Baum's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Baum "I grew up in Dewitt, NY and after graduating high school, I went to the Univesity of Miami. After graduating with a degree in chemistry, I decided to return to central NY and attended SUNY-Health Science Center at Syracuse for medical school followed by 6 years of general surgery training. My wife and I then moved to Boston to continue my training in plastic surgery at the Lahey Clinic and Harvard hospitals. My wife worked as a surgical ICU nurse at the Lahey Clinic during my 2 years in Boston. We then moved to Buffalo, NY where I completed a one year fellowship in hand/microsurgery. I opened my practice in Syracuse after looking at opportunities in south Florida. I opened my practice on 9/11/01, seeing my first two pts. just after the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Towers. I have subsequently narrowed my practice interests to cosmetic surgery, breast surgery, and treatment of skin cancers/scars. Several years ago, Kristyna Giancola, physician's assistant, joined my practice to improve our availability to see patients as well to afford my patients the option to see a female for some of their plastic surgery concerns.

Patient Comments (5)

Do not use Dr. Baum. He frequently delegates his consultation duties to a physician's assistant, who is not qualified for that duty, and he does not get notes from her. As a result, he starts surgery without a clue about what the patient is looking for. In my case, he asked me and I told him, but...more

I found Dr. Baum by looking at reviews online. After reading his very positive reviews, I decided to make an appointment. I was interested in botox and/or fillers for my face. I had a facelift in another city three years ago. Dr. Baum was very pleasant, unassuming, knowledgeable and humorous...more

Dr Baum was recommended to me a few years ago to treat a skin cancer on my nose. He was very thorough in the explanation of the needed surgery. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome! I have had a few procedures since that time that I had needed; but had always hesitated to have before...more
