This was my initial consult. Dr. Baum and his staff are all patient, caring and kind people. The plan or action he described to research my symptoms is logical and prudent. I look forward to his analysis.

Every time we leave the clinic I pinch myself just knowing how happy I am that we found such a skilled and down-to-earth clinic. This review is long overdue, as my father has been a patient of this clinic for over 4 years. Each time my father has been hospitalized, I feel at ease, knowing that Dr. Baum and the entire Cardiology Clinic of San Antonio will be there as an advocate on his behalf and with his best interests in mind. They performed the utmost care during each hospitalization and slowly I have had the pleasure of meeting almost the whole office, including PA Olvera, Dr. Contreras, Dr. Gerasimon, and Dr. Jayaram. With each doctor, even after hours, we have had the most positive experiences one can have during great emotional duress. I say- trust no other and look no further- Dr. Baum is the man, and PA Olvera and Dr. Jayaram will be there for you and your family member through thick and thin. You can rest knowing you finally found a great cardiology team. Bless you guys.

Dr. Baum has taken care of my dad, my mom, myself and now my sister for the last 25 years. I can do nothing but give him the highest praises. My dad passed in 2017 but according to his previous doctors, he wasn't supposed to live past 1987. The rest of my immediate family now sees Dr. Baum. I trust him fully with his opinion and care.

I am part of that group of people whom would be considered in the high risk category during this Covid-19 Pandemic. I was quite hesitant about going to this scheduled appointment and was very reassured during the process. the steps taken to maintain a safe environment including safe distancing, temperature check, screening questions, face masks for everyone, and antibacterial hand sanitizers or gloves if needed. I would recommend Dr. Baum because of his knowledge, professionalism, great staff, and his ability to personalize my disease process, concerns, and questions to trust both him and my plan of care.

This was a first time for me to have a virtual video appointment. There were few connection problems at first but the visit went well otherwise. I do prefer a face to face appt. and will look forward to a follow up in about 6mos which will be in person. I think DR. Baum handled the virtual visit very well, and provided enough time for review of my medical results and subsequent discussions. I did not feel like he was not rushing off to another patient, although I imagine his schedule was full as usual. I appreciate his time and care.

I have been a patient of Dr. Baum for several years now. He takes his job serious and has a great sense of humor. Dr. Baum takes the time to explain what's going on with your health and makes recommendations to help one live longer. He knows how to chew you out in such a kind and funny way, that it makes you want to follow the good health rules which isn't always easy for me, as I love cheesecake "). I wouldn't trade Dr. Baum for the world as Dr. Baum really cares about the health of his patients. I have much appreciation and respect for him.
