Patient Comments (7)

When I broke my back in 2003, the first 3 doctors said I would never walk. Dr Baldwin said I would walk the day of the surgery. I did and still do. My daily activity is not affected by my back in anyway and I often forget I ever broke it. I walk because of Dr Baldwin.

He spent a total of 1 minute listening to me and then referred me to pain management. I have multiple disc problems and a fracture. I wasted my time seeing him. He didn’t go over my MRI with us or anything. Will not recommend

Dr Baldwin, God was so good to direct us to you! Without your help and expertise our son would not be walking today. When others said his condition was inoperatable and were willing to leave him wheelchair bond, you took on the challenge and he’s walking again. Thank you for not giving up on him...more

This man drastically reduced my quality of life. I was 32 with back pain. He recommended surgery. I feel 3 times worse than I did before. Cannot run, lift weights, or do anything physical. I now have to take pain killers just to get through the day. DO NOT USE HIM!!! YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.
