Horrible way to run an office, no one ever picks up the phone during work hours, unprofessional staff, after waiting for over a week for our appt to see Dr Baum for the first and having an EEG done to my 9yr old son . I was called a day before to reschedule for yet another week...because the contracted technician who does EEG exams had called in sick the day of our appt....what kind of doctor doesn’t have a back up plan? Or maybe more than one EEG tech lined up?

My child is severely disabled. Dr. Baum promised to write proper reports so my son would receive more services. Dr. Baum wrote a worthless report and my son who is 9 years old has been denied ssi because of the vague report from dr. Baum. We saw dr. Baum in November and when I found out we were denied in January I called dr. Baums office and told them I needed more info from the dr. They told me I would have to schedule an appointment but they had stopped carrying insurance. Worthless.

Dr. Baum didn't provide individualized care and attention for my daughter. During 1 appt, he was acting as receptionist also. He was in and out of the exam room. When we had questions, his responses were unclear and condescending. It took 4 visits to get done what was done in 1 visit with different Dr. Dr. Baum didn't communicate well with pharmacy, which led to my daughter abruptly stopping meds for 4 days-not safe. He was hard to reach and incompetent. I would not recommend Dr. Baum to anyone

Dr. Baum is an excellent neurologist, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone searching for answers. He was able to pinpoint the issue with our son, and has collaborated very well with his other doctors to ensure that he receives the proper care. And yes, sometimes you do have to wait awhile in his waiting room, but it's because he gives every patient individual attention, and that's worth waiting for.

Always late, uncooperative staff, takes no insurance, wont deal with pharmacies... Dr Baum thinks that because he is one of the few pediatric neurologists in the San Fernando valley that it gives them license to under deliver
