Without a doubt, Dr Baars is the best doctor I have ever had. She is a great listener and helps me focus on the most important concerns I have. I have been with Dr Baars for many years and have had an outstanding professional relationship with her. In addition, I find that she is very thorough and compassionate to my health needs.

Dr. Baars is by far the best primary care physician I've ever seen. She is very thorough, super intelligent & the best is that she is sweet and makes you feel comfortable with your experience. I moved from LA to SF two years ago and cannot find a Dr. as great as her. I highly recommend her.

Dr Baars has been my primary doctor for years. She is calming, listens to your concerns and wants the best for your health. She is well connected in the community so if you need a specialist she can recommend one that is close, trustworthy and an expert in their field of expertise.

Terribly incompetent, and insisitive MD. She put my daughter through a wide range of unnecessary and harmful tests due lack of knowledge. Luckily, we changed doctors before she could do any more harm. I would give her zero stars if it was an option.
