Great diagnostician and great surgeon. Been a patient for years

At first glance, Dr. Baron is clearly intimidating which is why some may assume he is rude. However, my experience revealed him to be a kind, humorous, and caring doctor. You have to have a genuine intention to talk to someone if you're going to judge their personality. People assume that he doesn't do enough but how do you expect the decades before 2017 to have survived without casts and splints? The human body already heals many aspects of injury by itself as it was meant to do. Dr. Baron is

I had a little pain in my knee and Harvey Baron too quickly suggested surgery to remove a "tumor" in one lower leg. This was not tumor and was actually a condition present in both in both upper and lower portions of both legs. I was advised not to run, because my leg bones were thin and brittle; this was false. Surgery was never required. Really scary that he is allowed to operate as a doctor and provide such haphazard advice.

Dr. Baron was rude. I hoped his competence would make up for it - wrong. He was reading an MRI of my knee but was distracted by planning flight time the coming day in discussion with his assistant. Though he found meniscus damage, his recommendation to the insurance company was that I had reached maximum improvement & that PT should cease. Problem is I was receiving PT for a mass of scar tissue from a car accident. He said nothing about treating my knee. AVOID HIM!!!
