Vista, CA |
Was referred to Dr. Baumgarten after the first referral doctor was unavailable. Dr. Baumgarten misdiagnosed my injury to such an extent that I have been engaging in daily activities for over 2 months with multiple fractures instead of the 1 FRACTURE he said was the ONLY fracture. He acted as if telling me what was taking place in MY BODY was an inconvenience. In my opinion he is either incompetent, arrogant, or suffering from mental illness. It's a pitty that he is allowed to practice medicine.

He only explained to me what he was going to do on the way into surgery and i said NO! Dont do that i do not want that done and he did it anyway leaving me partially disabled. When i told him my other dr. s said i shouldnt have that done he chuckeled and said she was right i was wrong

Outstanding Dr. B is simply put the best. Hilarious and puts you right at ease. Along with his great ,friendly staff and always right on time. Scoped my knee and got me back to 100% when I broke my hand. Got me in right away was in surgery a couple of days later. I was back to playing Golf and Surfing within a short time frame. Replaced both knees for my wife. Even made a house call on a Sat. for her. Doesn't sugar coat anything. Always goes the extra mile. Top notch - Fight On Dr. B Thanks
