He's a good dermatologist and I'm very happy with him.

I've been going to Dr. Baum for 5 years now, and I have found him to be an excellent dermatologist. It's easy to get an appointment, and if it's an emergency they always get me in the same day I call. The in-office wait times are short, staff is friendly, my insurance billing is always handled correctly, and Dr. Baum himself seems very competent. His "bedside manner" is a little brusque, but then I'm not there to chit-chat. I have full confidence in Dr. Baum.

Dr. Baum seems to know what he is doing when it comes to certain things. He had me try Accutane in my late teens for my face and it worked. However, I went last year to have a mole removed off of my hand and I was left with an even worse scar. When I went to have my stiches taken out he was in such a hurry that I ended up pulling them out when I got home because he didn't take the time to look to make sure they were all gone. Now that the wound is healed my scar is bigger and darker than the mole ever was.

racing dermatologist

Dr entered in a hurry, asked what I needed. Kept interrupting when I tried to explain my needs. Would not look at my list of printed concerns. Criticized me for not listing medical allergies on my printed form. He made me feel like a I was in line at a fast-food restaurant with a long impatient line of customers behind me.
