I wish Dr Baum was my grandfather, or my regular pcp. He was wonderful and listened to me, and provided the best care.
dr Baum was knowlegible about the problem and pain that I was experiencing, but I would have appreciated more time with him and. what to expect in the way of treatment and possible recovery.
I was amazed at how quickly I was in and out of there. I was taken back to the exam room right away, saw the physician shortly after, had x-rays taken and read and then was fitted for a walking boot all within 45 minutes. Fantastic! Great job.
Dr.Baum explained my problem to me very thorough ,in a way I could understand.
Dr. Baum went above and beyond when seeing me. He was aware we were there for a second opinion, and he spent more time with me than any other doctor I have ever seen. He visually showed us what he found after he ordered xrays. He then explained to my wife and myself what the xrays showed.
It was my first visit to the Doctor, and I was more than satisfied with the service provided.
Service was more than expected since I was a new patient and doctor had only x-rays from outpatient dept at hospital and had minimal medical record information from me.
Very good experience. I was checked in and taken on time with very little wait time.
The experience could not have been any better
I was very pleased with the concern the people at the reception desk showed me. I was offered a wheelchair and given preference to check in window. While he did what he had to do (give me a shot) he was very brusque and all business.
I've seen Dr. Baum several times in the past and have always been treated courteously, professionally, and with respect.
Dr. Baum and staff were receptive and pleasant. If I lived closer to St Margaret, I would utilize this facility for my primary care. However, this is not feasible.
It was my first visit for my ankle and I was very pleased with the care I received.

Dr. Baum is both an excellent surgeon and communicator. He has a wonderful and caring personality. I have often sent individuals to him for medical care.
Dr. Baum is always professional and listens well.
he did order test for me but they were before my visit so we would have the results for my office visit being that i drive 2hrs an 40 mins to get to his office. very smart on his part saving time instead of having me drive all that way to go home have test them come back ! excellent love seeing him very educated man
Dr. Baum is a very good surgeon with a good bedside manner. He is very easy to talk to & he's a good listener. I would recommend his services to my family & friends.
All of my experiences with Dr. Baum are very good. Excellent Doctor
Dr. Baum and his associates performed a two-part, complicated and challenging surgery about one year ago in order to relieve my extreme sciatic nerve pain. I was kept informed about options, procedures and expectations for recovery during every interaction with Dr. Baum. My quality of life is greatly improved due to his medical expertise. My confidence in him never wavered and my regard for his ability to reduce my fears throughout this past year is immeasurable. I am released from his care as of last week and I am sincerely grateful for his excellent care.
Care provider was excellent. Demonstrated real concern and listened to what I had to say. Had very beneficial and frank conversation which eased a lot of anxiety.
Dr. Baum is one of the nicest physicians I have seen in a long time. He took time to answer all of my questions and concerns. He personally called me with my test results.
