Dr. Baldauf did my knee and my wife's rotator cuff. A good surgeon. Very poor staff. They just don't call you and will not answer the phone. If you can put up with this, you should be OK. Post surgery, I had big problems and could not get a call back. Checked myself in for a DVT scan. My leg was in complete spasm for 10 days until it released - and this jus from meniscus repair. Next knee repair I went to Dr. Crovetti - MUCH better experience.
Cannot trust his diagnosis, recommendations or anything that comes out of his mouth. Along with the office staff on this location, I would strongly recommend for patients with orthopedic issues to STAY AWAY from this place along with these doctors.
I am a 70 Year old retired construction owner. I was Fortunate enough to find out about Dr. John Baldauf and what a great surgeon he is. I made an appointment with him, we discussed my options, and went forward with the decision for two total knees at the same time.Dr. Baldauf has great bed side manners, helps you understand,and you feel like he not only truly cares, but loves his work. I have always led an active life thanks to the good lord and still do thinks to the Doctor.I am pain free! can walk everyday and several times a week go for a seven mile walk just as my wife and I did just yesterday. we got home and the only thing that didn't hurt let me say that again the only thing that didn't hurt or was sore or tires was my KNEES. Getting both knees done @ the same time was the only road for me to go, and it was a long hard one but within 6 weeks or less things were just falling into place, I felt great, The Pain was gone and we were still doing up to 3 hours a day physical therapy, down from about 5 hours a day. I know it sounds like a lot of therapy but let me tell you I would do it all over again for the way I feel now, GREAT!!! I can not only run up a flight of 50-60 steps, but can once again work on my street rods ,change my own oil, all of this on my knees, of course on a knee pad. Thanks to the Doctor and the good graces of the lord my life is great. P.s. I just had my three year check up, lets hope they last another 30 years. Written By Paul Christiansen.
Not a single appointment was without a 2-hour wait. Dr. Baldauf spent a total of 10 minutes with me between 5 appointments. When he was unable to diagnose my pain with an MRI (ignoring my request for a surgical scope as the previous MRI found nothing) he then released my to full duty without consulting me, though in his paperwork it states he did (falsification of medical records is a felony). He's sold out his integrity for a promise of more patients from Workers' Comp. To release a patient when not knowing what is wrong and not being certain there is no possibility of further injury is medical malpractice. He should be ashamed of himself not only as a doctor, but as a person. A perfect example of why patients have an increasingly hard time trusting their physicians.
My primary Dr. sent me to Dr. Baldauf, I had a MRI done and took it with me and he had X-Ray's done. He came in to see me and look at me and told me straight out "Anna you need you shoulder re-placed" I almost passed out. I told him I couldn't have this done I'm going to Jamaica on a cruise but I was living in pain 24 hours everyday. He said he could go in and clean it up for a temporary fix, hoping that it may last a year or so. That was in Feb. 2013 and I had to go back in Sept. 2013 and a month later Oct. 17, 2013 I was having my shoulder replaced. I'm 55 year of female I have 5 grandchildren who if I can't get on ground and play with them, through balls my heart if broken beside the extreme pain I was in day and night. If it wasn't for Dr. Bauldauf and his personal and professional care he give's. I would refer anyone to him and I'm having my mother come to Las Vegas, NV to have her knee replaced by Dr. Bauldauf. He can change your life like he did mine.
went in for cortisone shots in my knees....waited for 2.5 hrs to see the Dr. he spent 5 mins in the room with me and then sent his PA in to do the injections
I was bone-bone on both hips for two years and could not have the surgery due some other health issues. John assured me that when I get this done I will feel 100% better! I trusted and believed in him and lived with the pain and not being able to walk for well over a year, Well, I finally had both hips replaced within a 3 month period and Dr. Baldauf gave me my life back! John has the passion for what he does that is what makes him one of the best! He mentioned to me on several occasions that " This is my favorite type of surgery as it makes my patients feel SO much better" . That is a true sign of passion and caring for your patients. My best friend back east is friends with a top Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Rothman Institute Doctor Peter Sharkey who gave Doctor Baldauf extremely high recommendations that made me feel even more confident going into this type of major surgery which I never experienced before! I feel great now and want to also thank Amanda Thistle Physician Assistant at Desert Orthopaedic Center who followed up with me consistently to make sure my recovery was going in the right direction. Amanda also has so much passion for what she does and is very professional and responsive! Candice and the entire team and DOC did such a fantastic job before and after my surgeries. Words can't thank them all enough! Sincerely, Mark
After several months of being in pain in the hip area I visited Dr. Bauldauf and the visit couldn't have been more fruitful. I have a new hip, free of pain, and was surprised how well the surgery went and how quickly I recovered. My physical therapist said "Dr. Baldauf's patients don't need very much therapy because of his techniques. I couldn't be happier with the results.
A great doctor. Complete recovery after knee replacement surgery.
Dr. Baldauf is professional, extremely competent, caring physician. Although maintaining a busy agenda, he makes sure to follow-up on my care.
I CAM TO LV AND BROKE MY FOOT AND ANKLE. SEARCHED FOR HIGHLY QUALIFIED ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON,AND I WAS SO LUCKY TO FIND. DR. RAISSI. THE STAFF WAS SUPER,FRIENDLY,COURTEOUS,HELPFUL. THEY WERE ABOVE AND BEYON. DR. RAISSI WAS GREAT``````````````. I GOT AN APPT. WITHIN ONE DAY. HE WAS EFFICIENT. GAVE ME A DISCOUNT AS I HAVE NO INSURANCE.TOOK HIS TIME WITH ME,EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO ME. I GO BACK TO SEE HIM IN A MONTH. WHAT A GREAT PLACE. WOULD GIVE IT MORE THAN 5 STARS.
For many years i have been a patient of Dr. Thomas Dunn & Dr. John Baldouf, to inform you that these professional team have been very kind and very helpful, always going out of there way to help me. They speak spanish with the seniors that do not speak english like me. I want to extend my good recommendation because when people like me, seniors who don`t speak english fluently feel very well when helped by Dr. Thomas Dunn Dr. John Baldouf, Helen Brito, and Bertha Ayala helped.
Very great assistants.
Great as always
Overall experience was excellent. Dr. Bassewitz and his staff were very professional and answered all of my questions. His diagnosis was perfect, as were the results of my surgery. I have already recommended Dr. Bassewitz to a freind. Dr Bassewitz also came very highly recomended by other professionals, including doctors.
Hugh is an oustanding individual who cares about the individual not just the diagnosis. His personal staff are highly efficient and professional. The surgical outcome has been excellent.
Dr. Bassewitz was like a miracle worker for me. My back pain had left me unable to stand or walk and my quality of life was a zero, at only 40 years old. His discectomy of my L5 gave me my life back. I have not had one ounce of pain since the moment I woke up from surgery, with the exception of incision soreness only. He is the best and I would recommend him over and over.
I forgot my insurance car and Theresa such a great help. Silvia assisted her with my appointment. Great staff!!

dr baldauf advised me that my knee replacement would keep me in the hosp 4 or 5 days. I was in for 18 days with renal failure and an infection. he has no bedside manner whatsoever. after 2 months of physial therapy i still had pain and lack of motion. i went to another ortho dr for a second opinion . the second doctor showed me on a new x-ray that my knee cap wasin wrong.He said he would have to do the whole knee over. because of my age and health status i would be at risk. r. Baldauf is a very bad surgeon, has no ability and no consideration for patients.I understand that he had to change hospitals because of his lack of ability.
good service and explained everything very well
Very expeditious & literally life saving
Bret is fabulous. Dr. Perry has given me a new lesson in life. Clarissa is a very accommodating little doll.

Very thorough, very thoughtful, concerned staff-always polite and professional. Thank you doc.
Dr. Baldauf performed knee surgery on me on January 4, 2010. He is one of the most `professional` doctors that I have had the opportunity to meet. I would recommend him to anyone needing knee surgery.Thanks Dr. Baldauf for making me feel better!
I was late for my appt. but the staff and Dr. Watson were wonderfully accommodating. Thank you
Wonderful Doctors very thoughtful. Thank you so much

Everyone is very courteous and nice. Dr. B is great and Helen at check out is wonderful too
I went to see Dr. Baldauf for shoulder pain which he determined to be arthritis. Dr. Baldauf believed that an injection would relieve my pain and that surgery wasn't necessary. After a day of pain from the injection, my shoulder feels fantastic. I found Dr. Baldauf and his staff to be very caring and friendly.
The doctor has zero bedside manner. I only saw/met him once and he failed to show before or after my surgery to discuss it. No follow up calls to see how I was doing either. That said, the surgery for my torn meniscus was excellent. I had no problems and zero pain. The staff was fantastic and caring.
Dr Baldauf did 2 knee replacements on me over 3 years. I couldn't give him a higher recommendation. He is a top notch surgeon, and he truly cares for his patients. Knee replacement surgery is not an easy thing to go through, but having a good doctor helps a lot.
Very professional and to the point. Excelent instructions to the hospital staff. His staff is also professional and caring.
Last year I put my trust in this doctor, and have been suffering the consequences of that trust ever since. Once he put down his scalpel after my knee replacement surgery, I was unceremoniously assigned to his PA, who has rude down to a science! I was treated as if the problems I was experiencing were in my head, and in their opinion, my head was empty. They have continued to stall me and still have not been contacted to correct the pain and agony I am in every day. Neither the doctor nor his PA have any bedside manner. It's get in and get out, don't bother me medicine. And, if you complain, nobody cares! If I knew then, what I know now, I wouldn't take my dog to see Dr. Baldauf! He's an excellent doctor, if you want to end up a cripple!
Dr. Baldauf performed a total knee replacement. His level of attention to detail and his surgical expertise made a painful ordeal easier to go through. I'm sure my other knee will have to be replaced at some point. I can assure you, Dr. Baldauf will do that one as well.
Dr. Bigler treated my knee with utmost care and concern. I have struggled with it for years, and have seen many doctors, with fair results. After seeing Dr. Bigler, I can honestly say my knee has been fixed, all thanks to his expertise and skill. I recomm
