He took the easiest route for my torn tendon in my index finger, where many surgeons wood have chosen to operate.

Dr. Baugher is absolutely wonderful. As a young female, it can be difficult at times to find a doctor who will truly listen to you when you are telling them something is wrong. I was in pain for months, that was affecting not only my ability to work on my hobbies, but my everyday simple tasks were extremely difficult. It was not until my visit with Dr. Baugher that I finally got the MRI done and had a diagnoses, and was able to get the problem repaired. He has amazing bedside manner, is very calm and will take the time to explain to you what is wrong, especially in my case, in explaining imaging results which I had no idea what I was looking at and was lost in the medical rhetoric. I appreciate greatly being treated by him in a respectful way where I did not feel overlooked, brushed off, or as if my pain was just in my head, as I have experienced in the past from previous doctors. By far the best experience I have had with an Orthopedic doctor.

Do not go to this doctor or the Medstar office. Unfriendly and unprepared! I came for a thumb appt and my thumb was never touched.
