Excellent, caring doctor who made me feel like I was his number one priority! Calm and kind, Dr. Baum eased my fears, talked to me about options-- making me a part of the decision-making process, and earned my trust so I knew I was in excellent hands. Northeastern CT is fortunate to have a gentleman surgeon of Dr. Baum's caliber in our community!
