She stopped showing up for video appointments. She will schedule and confirm each one, but hasn’t shown up for the past 4 appointments - all in the span of 10 days. She will aggressively reschedule you (see above) just to skip. Telemedicine docs seem to get paid whether or not they show up. Do yourself a favor and find someone else. I don’t understand how she’s still employed.

This doctor is far from a medical professional. She is inattentive and neglectful and does not seem to care about her patients. She was supposed to follow up with me at about the 6 week point of me starting antidepressants however she never sent me an appointment request. She also ignored attempts of contact from my pharmacy and my psychologist detailing my concerns due to the fact that I was about to run out of medication. I had to have my primary care doctor give me a 14-day supply to ensure I didn’t run out. For anyone who doesn’t know, you cannot quit antidepressants on a whim because the effects can be very detrimental. Apparently this “medical professional” did not care about that and definitely did not care about my well-being as her patient. She is by far the worst doctor I’ve had the displeasure of dealing with. If you ask me she is extremely negligent and her “care” or lack thereof borderlines on malpractice. She should not be in possession of a medical license, run far away!

Very pleasant! She let me list off my concerns, etc., and managed to revisit everything without making me feel like I have an overwhelming amount of issues. Very calm, understanding demeanor. Did not opt to medicate me with too much additional medication, but knew medication was a part of addressing my current state. Suggested holistic approaches and therapy in addition to the medication. I look forward to my follow-up appointment. Services were provided remotely via Telemedicine.

Do not waste your money. I saw her for a second opinion regarding IPN, she could not make a recommendation until I had additional testing. Once complete, which came out fine, she still recommended her own treatment facility knowing that the treatment was not clinically indicated. When questioned about this she immediately recanted her offer to her own facility and basically said she would not have any further contact with me, although I privately had hired her and already paid $1400.00.

I've been a patient of Dr. Baez for over a year now. Her staff has been incredible with dealing with my insurance issues and scheduling my appointments. Dr. Baez is the best psychiatrist i've ever had. She's very knowledgeable and cares about my needs as a patient. She's always made sure that I understand what my medication is for and what to expect while taking it. At each follow up visit she's always attentive and makes sure i'm comfortable with my medications.
