Nashville, TN |
One of the worse doctors I have been to. As someone with an autoimmune disease I have been to a few doctors but none of them have failed me as much as Dr. Baum.

Dr. Baum is a "scientist." He will not go out of his medical school training box, so to speak. I see him for Hashimotos/Hypothyroidism and he treats me for my labs and not my symptoms. If you ask him to go above and beyond the regular TSH, T4 & T3 tests, he will not budge. He has told me that "antibodies results for the Hashimotos will never change" though I've read many books about women who have put their Hashimotos into remission and have brought their TPO numbers into "normal range" with

Dr. Baum was snide and condescending.
