What People Say About Dr. Joel Baumgartner, MD
Reply
Most incredible Doctor I have ever met in my life. He was the only person that could comfort me just by his kindness and gentleness. It had been 2 years since my Dad died, but no one took care of him like Dr. Baumgartner. I can't even describe my appreciation for him. There isn't one other person that I owe more than him. Many other doctors were harsh, cruel,and heartless in their words and care. But his kindness toward my Dad made a lifelong impact on me. With tears in my eyes, I say, Thank you
