She was not very nice and told me she couldn't "in the allotted time" deal with my issues. I had the feeling that she was looking down her nose at me the whole time. She told me that she none of my records but I was not told to bring any. I had the feeling I was inconveniencing her! Don't waste your time with this dr.

I have seen many good doctors in my long life, 57, and Dr Baerenstecher is by far the best. First and foremost, she treats you as if you are her own family member. She demonstrates deep concern, and really takes the necessary time to understand and explore and brainstorm all aspects of the problem. In my case she explored symptoms that previous doctors "wrote off". Those symptoms turned out to be quite significant. She is surely one of the best primary care physicians in the Houston area.
