Superior surgeon! Dr. Baron is awesome and has positively impacted my life in two ways - he gave me HOPE (which I haven’t had for years), and he adroitly performed L5-S1 revision surgery that eliminated over 8 years of insidious, chronic pain. I appreciate and respect Dr. Baron for his...more

Although everyone has the right to express an opinion here, this patient was allowed to comment twice at this site. This review should be dismissed simply because is is not factual. Please consider reading my comments to the 2/5/18 review and my many other reviews.
