Scrolled to see what complaints people had with Dr. B. and I can honestly say that none of them make sense. Dr. baldauf was attentive, funny, smart, thorough, patient, and even teased me. He's a great doctor, and his nurses etc all look up to him and emulate his funn loving and professional...more

Dr. John Baldauf takes his time with each patient. He tries using other methods like instead of surgery in my case. He's wonderful, I appreciate his techniques..
