Dr Baldauf and Shaylynn are an amazing team. thank you for giving my daughter the best care possible.
Dr. Hecht Bauldaf is absolutely awesome!! Many time you go to see a Dr and they are in and out so quick you can barely get questions in. Not her, she really takes time with her patients. She explains things thoroughly, asks you questions, listens to your concerns and really takes time to work with you to figure out the best plan of action. She also makes sure you know how to reach her nurse directly with any concerns. She called me herself with my daughter's test results and I really liked that. She is one of the best Doctors I have met and I am so thankful to have her as part of my Daughter's care team!!!
we love Dr. Baldoff. She is very helpful and kind and knowledgeable. She always takes time to talk about important issues even if that isn't always just endocrine related. She really makes a difference!!
I would not choose to have this provider again. She seemed to be annoyed at my child not wanting to participate in a trial run of a diabetic device that would inform him of high or low blood sugars because of how expensive it would be if anything happened to it. I found that to be very disrespectful and would not elect her to see my son again.
she always listens and I feel as though she truly cares about my child's wellbeing
very good experience
Dr. B is great! she always takes the time to talk through everything. she is familiar with my son's history since his last visit.
did not have any bad experiences. Was very happy with the thoroughness of his first appt.
I love this Dr. she is the best! She is always on time, caring & concerned. She is very personable & truly knows my child & myself & I feel like she has a genuine interest in my child. You do not find that too often these days!!
Dr. Baldauff has always treated my son with respect and care. I would not take my son to anyone else. She has a deep understanding of his condition and always makes time to clearly answer any questions he or I have. She is a top medical professional, UPMC is lucky to have her.
Very attentive and took her time with my daughter.
my child's care provider was very detailed. she talked professional but she always made sure I understood what she was meaning. not only was she great with my child that was seeing her for the appointment she was kind and respectful to my other child.
The provider and her intern were exceptionally compassionate and kind towards my son and myself. The provider listened and asked questions to me and also my twelve year old son. His responses were met with sincerity and respect. She shared very informative information to encourage his healthy habits while also reinforcing some areas of concerns that need to be corrected. Her positive reinforcement (my son losing weight and trying healthy habits) was exactly what he needed from a care provider. He stated, "This was one of the best appointments ever!" on the car ride home. He also called his grandparents to tell them that their group exercising was working! (I can't express how valuable this interaction was for our family as we are trying to help him through the daily events of puberty while trying to control diabetes with new healthy habits and routines.)
Dr. Bauldhaff is a great doctor. She always shows genuine concern and care. All of the staff at the endocrinology clinic are friendly and helpful. The whole family believes we could not get better care anywhere else.
we have always had a great experience with Dr. Bauldraff
Dr. bauldaff is just the best. very thorough, compassionate and knowledgeable. So grateful we have her.
Everything was great. We really like the doctor. She is very nice and she covers everything with us.
Natalie always takes time to answer any questions that we have - and she explains in a way that our family understands.
Very good analysis and through information regarding child care. Good hands on experience! Keep it up.
we love dr. b andl the chippewa staff!
We had a wonderful experience with Natalie. We look forward to seeing her again in the future!
I am always pleased with the knowledge and treatment we receive from Dr Bauldoff. As a hard working individual, I am also impressed with how Dr Bauldoff spent her time with us wisely. She showed true interest in the health of my child and as we waited for lab orders I could tell she rushed to get them, and rushed to her next appointment. It is nice to see someone cares about how the patients are spending their time.
Dr. Natalie is the best doctor! Always gives us the best care.
Absolutely love her... Shows genuine care & concern for my daughter and my concerns.
She was really nice and understanding with my daughter. My daughter was really happy about seeing her. She responded to every question I had about my daughter's health and also explained to me everything that i needed to know.
We love this doctor!!

knowledgeable and personable. very caring and thorough.
very thorough and extremely helpful in answering questions
she was wonderful. spoke to me and my daughter so we could both understand. very caring and concerned with how my child is coping with her issues. very compassionate and understanding!!
I can not say one negative thing about the care that my daughter and family have received. Dr. Natalie Hecht-Buldolph is part of my family as far as I am concerned. I trust her with my daughters life and that should speak volumes about her character and wisdom. Couldn't be more thankful for her.
