What People Say About Dr. Joseph Baust Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Doc is fine - very personable. If we had a problem that was anymore complicated than a regular checkup, we would use the Urgent Care as we don't have that level of confidence. Other than that, the office staff is a total joke. Do away with every single front office staff/manager and get new people and I'm sure it would improve.

Dr Baust is a fantastic pediatrician. We love his personality and attention to the kids, but my average wait time for well-visits is 1.5 hrs. That’s just too long!

There is not a better pediatrician anywhere. My kids beg to go to each other’s appointments just to see him. He builds relationships with his patients and parents. Dr. Baust is trustworthy, wise, and compassionate which are characteristics that aren’t as common as they once were.

The office staff is very friendly. Dr. Baust's nurses are cheerful and very down to earth and take the time to interact with the patients. We followed Dr. Baust from his last practice because he's that good. He listens to your concerns and answers your questions. He makes recommendations and rely has a great manner about him. My three boys love visits to Dr. Baust and we always recommend him to friends looking for pediatricians. We have never been more satisfied.

Dr. Baust and his staff are wonderful. We do tend to wait a bit but the care and attention we receive is totally worth it. My son enjoys going to the doctors, which for his age is awesome. We never feel rushed, we trust the doctors, they genuinely care for their patients and make the time spent there super fun for the kids!

He is very caring and gets on the child level. He actually talk to the kids and ask them what’s wrong. He also ask how they are what they are doing in school. He is amazing and we are so happy we have him as our pediatrician.
