Worst experience that we've ever had with the medical profession. Could have resulted our child's death. Very disappointing that Dr. Baron and his staff are so arrogant and unresponsive that they sat on lab results they ordered and received showing our child had diabetes. They never informed us, and were planning to withhold that information until they could review it with us at the follow up appointment they couldn't schedule until 3 months later because that's their "standard policy".

Has been Dr. for my son since 3 he now almost 17, and he has worked with us, and always given great advice reaching out to other experts on my child's condition. Staff is busy but care has always been good. He explains things to the kids, less scary for them. Straight talk, and straight forward.

My experience with Dr. Baron was very good. We didn't wait long, and the doctor spent a lot of time figuring out the best plan of action for my son. I have no complaints.

Dr. Baron gave up on my daughter and said she was making everything up when it came to her GI issues. What ended up happening is that she was filling up with bowel and had no air in her gut. The day before she was admitted to hospital, we asked Dr. Baron to read a x-ray and he said she looked normal. She was admitted the next day with no air in the gut. He also never came to the the hospital to check on her and his office is 10 feet away. Dr. Baron can't think out of the normal GI issues.
I highly recommend if you choose dr Baron as your child's dr, you get a 2nd opinion . I wouldn't trust him with my worst enemy. He had no clue what he was doing when it came to my child's condition, causing her more pain and more issues. Be very careful when choosing him for your child. Office staff is extremely rude and they make you feel like you are bothering them when you call to ask questions.
