Dr Baldauf took the time to listen to me and find out what my knee complaints really were. He didn’t rush right in and say surgery was needed. He is willing to eliminate all other options first.

Excellent Doctor. I have just started treatment for my knees. So far so good. Dr. Baldauf has been extremely professional and thorough. His straight, forward demeanor instills a great confidence quickly. After my examination he thoroughly explained all of my options and choices. His office staff is also excellent. VERY organized and polite. Office is run well.

I went in to check on a torn bicep. The staff was friendly and the wait was minimal in a busy office. Dr. Baldauf was quick to assess the injury and just recommended rest to allow the muscle to heal without any further treatment. I was fully expecting to have to comeback for follow-up treatments.

Dr. Baldauf and his team rescued me from the malfeasance of another doctor....and saved my leg from amputation. He truly cares and it shows.

I was treated 10 year ago by Dr. Baldauf for a shoulder problem and with time and aging, the pain in my rotator cuff returned and was giving me daily problems. I returned to the Doctor for treatment knowing that he is an excellent surgeon and skilled in orthopaedic matters. He communicates well with his patients to resolve their concerns and explains to them how the necessary corrections will be approached and solved.

The facility alone on Warm Springs makes the place look professional. The staff and the doctor made me comfortable for being there for the first time. Wish my wife had a redo and chose this place over another orthopedic office she went to. She is still waiting for help for her severe carpal tunnel.
