by Ali E on Apr 15th, 2015

My husband has been in chronic pain for 14 years. He has been treated with pain meds for all this time. He is not a problem patient and has been to another Pain Mgmt Doctor in California for 2 years. When I requested to make an appointment with this doctor, I was told " The doctor is not interested in taking your husband on as a patient" I have to question this since we have records from his former pain doctor to show this doctor, however they are not even interested in helping a person that really needs it. I think it goes back to the previous writer that mentioned he only likes success, not the work.

Once they tried one procedure which was not successful they refused to speak with me about other possible options. When I tried to make another appointment to speak with Doctor Baumann I was told that "there is nothing else we can do for you" at which point I hung up. My opinion is that he only wants to treat patients that he can have immediate success with and has no interest in the "difficult" patients, it doesn't make him look so good if he can't "cure" you the first time.

Bad doctor with an even worse business plan. See's patients on their initial visit and only for injections thereafter. Inexperienced, immature and rude staff negate what competent staff exists. Heavy staff turnover because doctor is unwilling to pay prevailing wage to retain experienced employees. This business model lends itself to inexperienced staff making repeated mistakes with patient's charts. I was discharged for complaining about distracted, immature and inexperienced staff member who repeatedly made mistakes with my charts. Find another doctor and/or pain management practice.

The Doctors at Barrows Neurological Institute in Phoenix are highly recommended and, compared to this practice, and have more experience. I wouldn't waste my time with the Central Arizona Pain Institute.

Both Dr. Baumann, Dr Anacaya strive to improve a patient's quality of life by using several different types of treatments, if needed. Their true compassion for their patients reflect this. Both these Doctors, their Assistants, Staff and Administrative Support Personnel provide their best for the good of their patients. I highly recommend these health care professionals at the Arizona Pain Institute. Due to their very much high quality of service, scheduling an appointment can be delayed, (because of patient demand).

I have had 2 back sugerys (32 year old male) and many spinal injections.Dr. Baumann has been the first Doctor that really is trying to pin point my problems and his injection have been pain free for the most part. other injections have left me unable to move afterwards. Awesome Doc and great staff.I would give him a try before wasting your time driving to Flagstaff or the Valley.

Sunny was very efficient and nice. Dr. Baumann seemed interested in helping me get some pain relief. He has a good bedside manner and listens to you.
