Dr B is an outstanding physician! I am have been his patient for about 25 years and I can always count on him for excellent care. He is extremely knowledgeable and has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have in my 67 years of life. Dr Baginski will give you the highest quality of care. You can absolutely count on it.
Dr Baginski has been my OB since 2011. My husband and I were desperate to start a family and needed some help. Enter Dr. B. After years of trials and tribulations, we now have a healthy 6 week old daughter! We could not have done it without his help. And I can not imagine a different doctor and staff to endure that journey with. The entire doctors office has become an extended family for my husband and I. Dr B is very knowledgable about infertility (among other things) and made me feel very comfortable at every visit. I would recommend Dr B to all my friends and family!
I have been going to see Dr. Baginski for approximately 19 years. Although he did not deliver any of my three children he has taken very good care of me. I have had an eblasion procedure over five years ago with zero complications. Dr. Baginski and his office staff especially Freddie are always attentive, caring and thoughtful. They try very hard to keep their patients from waiting extend periods of time. He is not only the best OBGYN I have ever had but he is the BEST DOCTOR I have ever had.
Dr. Baginski is an extremely compassionate doctor as well as an excellent physician. He delivered both of our children and has continued to take excellent care of me ever since then. In fact, Dr. Baginski saved my life when he quickly and accurately diagnosed me with breast cancer and referred me for immediate treatment. I would highly recommend him!
I now relax in Dr. Baginski's care. I find a certain ease and comfort in his ordinariness--the familiar sight of his tousled brown hair, stubble on his boyish face, crumples in his navy blue scrubs. It may seem odd to draw upon the ordinary, but ordinariness is in fact the hallmark of this extraordinary physician and gifted surgeon. Sharply tailored suits and Italian loafers could never reflect the Dr. Baginski I've come to know and appreciate. Such dress is only practical for physicians who spend their days writing prescriptions for nasal decongestants. The day of my oophorectomy, Dr. Baginski spent the morning hours performing pelvic exams, ultrasounds, menopause care, and prenatal care at his office. Later the hospital paged him to guide a woman through her birth experience--an hour before my surgery Dr. Baginski delivered her baby. I imagine a beautiful baby, soft, tiny, fragile even to her mother's touch. He arrived at the surgical center well after four in the evening to perform my surgery. A couple hours after his arrival, a nurse roused me from the anesthesia--anxiety immediately set in as I became suddenly aware of the sensation of pain, the chill of the air, and the strangeness of the faces around me. Unexpectedly, the curtain around the bed billowed as if caught in a breeze, then from behind the simple cotton drape stepped the surgeon with the familiar stubbled chin and tousled hair; his scrubs slightly crumpled as usual. Dr. Baginski words simply faded in midair, for in that moment, his words did not matter, only the sight of his familiar face. Dr. Baginski understood the oophorectomy was a deeply personal and very difficult decision for me. What Dr. Baginski did not know--and still does not know, is why. We all have a backstory; only I think of mine as a dead manuscript. I am not nostalgic. Nostalgia is a like a strange old country where time and distance distorts the moments of my life, blunts the pain of violence and poverty, yet rouses them to consciousness, sharpens their complexities. I am at peace now, but those who still seek peace at times disturb mine, rouse my thoughts, and leave me restless. In these moments, my thoughts drift downstream, flow deep into the old country where they lodge into my complex consciousness. I then question everything. I am not one given to trust. And in the days leading up to surgery, I found I did not trust myself. I needed to trust my surgeon. I needed to know unequivocally if I said, "Stop, I change my mind," he would hold me back from the precipice--keep me from slipping into the abyss of which I feared. The day of my pre-op appointment, I sat in Dr. Baginski's office. Quite suddenly he stopped work at his computer, turned his chair around, looked straight at me, and said, "If at any time you change your mind, all you have to do is pick up the phone and call me. It doesn't matter how close to surgery we get. It doesn't matter that we did the lab work." Intellectually I rationalize this as an extraordinary moment of sensibilities--the ability to perceive and respond to the intellectual and emotional needs of his patients. Aesthetically, it resonated as a wabi sabi moment. Wabi sabi does not translate to English; we cannot translate the experience evoked when one drinks from a master potter's teacup; we cannot translate the blend of melancholy and exhilaration we feel at the sight of a butterfly emerging from a cocoon--knowing its days are few. Wabi sabi is more than the mutual understanding of emotions conveyed between the master painter and the audience--wabi sabi is the experience of the realization and the understanding of those emotions. The sins of my father are my burden to bear. I rarely speak of my past, not even to my children. Grace, not shame silenced me. And too, I do not like to be mistaken for a girl with a dragon tattoo. So Dr. Baginski knows nothing of the violence in my past. But he is intuitive. He sensed my deep apprehension. He sensed my doubt. Without my ever saying the words, he understood enough to place himself squarely between my doubt and me--exactly where I wanted him to stand, exactly where I needed him to stand. On the day of my surgery, as the anesthesiologist prepared to take me to the OR he asked if I had any further questions for Dr. Baginski. I said, "No." I expected Dr. Baginski to leave, yet he remained steadfast at the foot of my bed until they took me away. I have no idea why Dr. Baginski stood there, for all I know he was mulling his weekend errand list. However, the gift of a final minute to change my mind was for me the rare and precious gift of trust. A gift I cherish, but rarely give or receive in life. In that moment, Dr. Baginski let me exhale, let me lie back, close my eyes, and relax in his care.
I have six children, I know I know that's quite a family. But, I guess that sort of makes me an authority on obgyn's. Dr. Baginski delivered my 6th child when I turned 42. This was a surprise delivery and he understood this fact. He was professional and caring. He took the time to discuss the risks, but also made my experience very calm. I found that his expertise is just what I needed at this phase of my life and delivery. I highly reccommend him to everyone for all your needs! He is the best Dr. out of six:)
My expectation with Doctors is that their compentancy is without fault. However, when it comes to understanding the patient's mental and emotional well being,I rate Dr. Baginski with 5 stars. I always know I am receiving excellent care with him.
I want to brag to everyone how you are the best doctor I have ever had and how you fixed my c-section scar that was so gross, and you made it practically transparent. I seriously could not have asked for a better doc to take care of me and my baby. I am forever grateful for you Dr. B. Thank you from my heart and God Bless!
Dr. Baginski is fantastic. He found an removed my endometriosis when I was a teenager and delivered my daughter 15 years later. There is no other doctor that I would consider going to. When changing insurance, I had to make sure he was on there first.
Dr. B is the most incredible doctor and surgeon. Everyone should have the experience of pure confidence in who is caring for you during an exciting yet nerve wracking time of your life during pregnancy and birth. I knew I was in the best hands and continue to be even now that I am done having kids.
I recently had a complicated surgery that required expertise, and Dr. Baginski was referred to me by my IM. He inspired great confidence as he had deep experience with some aspects of this surgery. As my issue did not present a clear path at the onset, Dr. B did his due diligence, contacting many colleagues asking advice. Ultimately he formulated a plan that both he, and I, were confident in. The results were great.I would recommend Dr. Baginski readily. He took great care of me and successfully rectified my situation. His expertise and bedside manner are unbeatable.
Doctor Baginski is super professional.He take care for me true all my pregnancy.Because I had c-section before he did my second c-section in Mission Hospital.It was on time,smooth,he care how I feel all the time,he did close it with staples,and 2 months later you can barely see my scar.I highly recommend him and there are no words to describe how grateful I am to him!Thank you very much Doctor Baginski!I am glad I found you!
Dr.Baginski is Super professional.He monitor all my pregnancy and I felt comfortable each visit.He did my c-section,perfect,very fast.I am highly recommending him!!!
I decided to have a hysterectomy (laparoscopic). It was SO easy! Immediately after, no pain or nausea. I only took off 1 week of work, had tiny incisions, almost no pain. Dr Baginski is a skilled surgeon, focused on patient comfort, and his sense of humor just made it easier!
Dr. Baginski is truly one of a kind. For the first time I was excited to go to the Dr.'s. And not only did I enjoy going, but my husband did too. My husband went to every appointment with me just to talk to Baginski. We also love the staff, especially Freddie. They treated us like we were part of their family.. ...Also, he not only delivered both of my babies, but one of the times he came in on his day off just for me..So with that said I would Highly recommend him.
I would highly recommend Dr. Baginski to anyone! I recently gave birth to my daughter and the entire experience was amazing. From the office visits, to the actually delivery, was incredible. Dr. Baginski and his staff went over and beyond with their service, professionalism, and knowledge. The entire experience was amazing!
I had to pick a new OB/GYN after a move to South OC...I loved my previous MD, so my new doc would have big shoes to fill. Dr. Baginski did just that, and then some. I have been his patient now for 15 plus years. He has delivered two of my daughters and he has corrected a bladder issue and solved my birth control issues. I trust him with everything, even referring my faily and friends-including my oldest daughter when she needed a GYN. We are now entereing a new phase for me, and we are working on "the change". I would highly recommend Dr. Baginski and his office/staff!!
I can not thank Dr. B enough for the nearly 20 years of exceptional care and especially for bringing my beautiful healthy twins safely into the world this year! God bless him! He should be celebrated.
I first went to Dr. Baginski in 2006, as a result of a referral from a friend. He had delivered her 3 kids at the time and has since delivered her 4th. I can honestly say Ive never felt better cared for in my life. I had high blood pressure as well as gestational diabetes and from the onset Dr. Baginski took excellent care of me. He has an excellent bedside manner. He has a great sense of humor, which with a stress case like me is a great relief. He answers all of my questions no matter how crazy they are and makes me feel confident that he is making the best decisions for my care. Since 2006, Dr. Baginski has helped me through the pregnancy and birth of my first son, a miscarriage and the necessary procedure following, and most recently the pregnancy and birth of my second son in 2011. I have nothing but rave reviews. Dr. Baginski and his staff are compassionate when necessary as well as celebrate with you when the time comes. Not only was the care excellent but for a working mother his office efficiency and hours are wonderful as well. They are available early in the morning as well as later in the evening which really helped me work around my work schedule as much as possible. I also have to praise Dr. Baginskis staff. They are all so friendly and make you feel well cared for. His nurse Freddy has been there for years and she is wonderful. She really helps keep the office running smoothly. Freddy and Dr. Baginski are a great team! I highly recommend Dr. Baginski as an OBGYN. He has a great reputation in my community and I definitely agree with what Ive heard. I recommend him to everyone, family and friends. If you are looking for excellent care Dr. Baginski is the best!
I have had the pleasure of being able to call Dr. Baginski my doctor for nearly 20 years. When I first moved to the area, I was referred to him during my third pregnancy. I can now proudly say that not only did he provide me excellent care throughout my high risk pregnancy, but also through the pre-menopausal years! (equally important!) He is expertly trained, has a sincere, caring bedside manner, has a great sense of humor, cares about and takes time to ask about other family members, answers all my questions, returns phone calls and exercises caution and includes his patients in the overall thought process when faced with medical issues that require making personal decisions or surgery. He is extremely knowledgable, keeps current on changin medical info and issues and is at the top of his game! In summary, I have the utmost respect and confidence in Dr. Baginski.Lastly, while I am always treated very kindly from the entire staff, Dr. Baginski's direct nurse assistant is incredible, as well! The entire experience is one for which a patient could only hope! If you want and need the best OB/GYN around, look no further!
The BEST OB/GYN in Orange County. Dr. Baginski has been my Dr for several years now I and would never go to another! He has performed 3 deliveries for me and two of those were high risk. He is not only a skilled physician and surgeon who is well read, but also a caring and compassionate Dr who treats you like a person and not just another patient. There were many occasions when I needed to contact him immediately during my pregnancies and he was always available and quick to see me. Because of his knowledge and demeanor, I have referred family members and friends to Dr. Baginski. His staff is always helpful and he is easy to get an appointment with. Would not go to anyone else! Best Dr around!
Thoughtful, intelligent and caring are the words I ascribe to Dr. Baginski. I adore his medical assistant too. I have had him deliver my two children, and hope to add a third as soon as I can talk my husband into it. :-)
Dr.. Baginski is exactly what I look for in a physician. He is young enough to be on the cutting edge of things (he does laparoscopy and doesn't need to cut you open and he even does robotic surgery!) and yet he is old enough to have wisdom and experience. He is a family man which makes him compassionate and human. He really is the best of both worlds. I wish I was not done having babies... oh well, I will just have to be content with having the best Gynecologist around :)
Best experience.....Right to the point with EXTREME Expertise!
Dr Baginksi is a skilled surgeon. I had 2 sections with him and I have no scar. He is firm, yet caring. I love this doctor.
Thank GOD, for Dr. Baginski. He is very direct and gets straight to the point; yet maintains a caring and compassionate demeanor! I went in for ask routine office visit and ended up getting a c section a few hours later. He was very reassuring and talk to me through out the procedure.
I would highly recomend Dr. Leon Baginski to anyone, who needs a caring, understanding OBGYN. He gave me a complete piece of mind when, after my first high risk pregnancy,he was there EVERY step of a way, ready to step in in case of emergency..i feel very fortunate to have met Dr. Baginski and thanks to his exceptional care we now have a beautiful, HEALTHY daughter.
