Dr. Baecher has been my doctor for about 15 years. He is clear headed, knowledgeable, experienced, and has a sense of humor. He's been spot on in his diagnoses, he knows when something is beyond his level of expertise or specialization, and his recommendations of outside specialists has been very helpful on a few occasions.

This guy was the doctor on call when I suffered a serious migraine attack this weekend. I've never met him, and he does not know me. Never the less, he tried to diagnose me-an unfamiliar patient-over the phone, as well as 2nd guess my (female) primary doctor's care, by telling me I didn't have migraines-a condition I've had for decades. He also lied about not being able to call in a certain medicine, which was called in by my doctor this April. Do not trust this man with your health. Zero stars.
