really good doc

I appreciated the time that Dr. Baumgarten gave me at my first appointment with him. He sat down and talked to me, asked me questions, and made me feel like he cared about me as a person, not just as a patient. I would recommend him ten fold.

Always gets it right.

Dr. Baumgarten is the best, We have had a 20 year relationship due to various issues with my feet. I have had 6 surgeries with Dr. B. He is always accurate in his diagnosis. He does have a great sense of humor that some might have to get used to. He spends all the time needed to explain to the patient what needs to be done to correct the problem. The staff is always friendly and courteous. I would recommend him with absolute confindence to anyone.
