He completed his medical internship and served his residency in Ophthalmology at the Ochsner Clinic and Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital in New Orleans and a Fellowship in Corneal Transplants and Anterior Segment Surgery at Tulane Medical Center. He is a clinical instructor for Illinois College of Optometry. He specializes in cataracts and implants and has performed more than 50,000 cases. Dr. Baumann has also served as principle investigator for multiple national research studies, including studies for new and advanced IOL implants. Dr. Baumann is past president of the Lake County Medical Society and has served on the board of directors of The Florida Society of Ambulatory Surgery Centers and the Physician Advisory Board for Amsurg Corporation. He was the co-founder of Advanced Recovery Centers, a national group of alcohol and drug rehab and eating disorders centers. He is also proud to be a volunteer for Eye Care of America for over thirty years providing free care for indigent people. He is also a board member of the Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center of Florida. He is board certified in Ophthalmology. Dr. Baumann and Dr. Panzo opened the area's first accredited outpatient surgery center specifically for eyes, (spotlighted among the best in the nation by Cataract & Refractive Surgery Today), and in 2008 opened the first eye surgery facility in The Villages. Dr. Baumann was the first ophthalmologist in Central Florida to introduce accommodating and multi-focal implants that correct for distance and near vision. Dr. Baumann, one of the most experienced cataract surgeons in the nation, has taught cataract surgery with implants to ophthalmology residents. Dr. Baumann was named principal investigator and was one of only four physicians in the United States selected to participate in a clinical trail of a new astigmatism-correcting intraocular lens implant.

Most visits which involve seeing the Dr. for 5 minutes involve at least a 1 hour wait time. You are staged in two waiting rooms the TV's in both rooms have continuous commercials about how good the Dr's are in the office . When I politely suggested to Dr. Baumann these repeating videos are a nuisance he said I should not tell him how to run his practice and I should go somewhere else and I am. If you like waiting for long times, and very short times with the Dr. consider him.

Upon Dr. Baumann recommendation I selected the Custom Full Range Vision Package with accommodation IOL to include ORA Guidance System. These option were to improve vision in all ranges, near,intermediate and distance. Near and possibly intermediate vision were worse after surgery. The following show the results: Pre Op 30 Oct- Distance 20/40 Near 20/30 Unknown Post Op 31 Dec Distance 20/30 Near 20/100 Intermediate 20/80 He claims this to be a good result and refuses to correct
