I have been seeing Dr. Baim for 2 years and have had several visits with him. He has been hands down the best doctor I have seen in the last 20 years. He is punctual and on time pretty much every time. He spends alot of time with me and is very thorough in going over my case and he also listens intently to everything I have to say and he answers all of my questions and concerns. Dr. Baim is easily the most knowledgeable doctor I have seen in many years and I have grown to trust his expert medical opinions and advice in his specialty of Rheumatology and I would probably trust his opinion in other areas of medicine as well. He has a good bedside manner and is easy to talk to. I would absolutely refer others to him and will absolutely continue seeing him as long as I need his medical care. I have to drive 1 hour each way to see him and it is definitely worth the drive.
