Crackerjack surgeon, the doctor you want if you have severe arthritis or any other hand problem. He doesn't say much - before surgery, nurses warned me he does not talk with family or patient afterwards unless something went wrong. Office appointments are spent mostly with a helpful, knowledgeable PA who instills confidence that you will get the best care. Everyone in the practice is friendly, efficient, and highly professional; appointments are on time, check-in and check-out are easy; most important, the medical care is first rate. I highly recommend Dr. Baechler.
