Outstanding in every respect. I do not often write reviews of any kind, and still less often read them, as I find that few people write with much knowledge and without bias. So I can only hope you will trust me when I say that Dr. Baum is one of the finest physicians I have ever known, and as someone who knows more than a few in more than one context, including my own care. He is the three most important things a doctor can be: extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, and he knows how to listen.

Dr. Baum has been my cardiologist for 10 years. He is a great doctor. He has an amazing bedside manner. I see him once a year and its like seeing an old friend. He is very knowledgeable and is personable. I would highly recommend Dr. Baum. He is just an overall nice guy who makes an uncomfortable situation much better.

Dr. Baum and his staff are a synchronized team. They are thorough and keep me updated on my labs and willingly provide copies of any procedures done. I am treated as a patient, not a number. I always leave knowing where I am health wise and what I need to do so my doctor can take better care of me. The medical attention is always beyond satisfactory. The attention is personal and so gratifying. I am one happy client!!!!
