Do not usethis doctor

I had back surgery using him in August 2015. Within one week , I had a huge knot come on my back. I came to have him check it and as usual, his assistant was the one I saw. He drained it with a large needle and told me it should be fine. I had no idea it was spinal fluid leaking at that time. I had severe headaches with this and was admitted again and another surgery to put a drain in my back. I laid flat of my back for 5 days. I could feel the life draining from me. 3 weeks after the first surgery, he decides to do another surgery to see why this was happening. Guess what, he had clipped my spinal cord. I have never recovered from this and can hardly walk. the pain is 5 times worse.

Back surgery

Dr. Baldwin is the most absolute best surgeon I have had, he repaired someone else’s mess up and I’m able to walk and do my absolute best. Dr. Baldwin did surgery on me 18 years ago and I’m still doing great. If you need a great surgeon he is the one to go to !!!!

Misdiagnosis

My mother fell and had a pretty bad contusion to her forehead. When she arrived to CMC ER, they did a CT scan and then Neuorsurgery Consult. Be in Baldwin was on-call. He came in and stated she was going to be admitted because she had a rather small subdurel hematoma but it did not require surgery. He stated it would resolve on its own. She was admitted to SICU for observation. However, I am in the healthcare profession and I fortunately know his bedside manner. I felt he was not competent enough to take care of her so we requested he be removed from her case. This was a blessing in disguise. Harold Smith arrived the following Monday and explained the hematoma was actually larger than what Baldwin had stated. He stated something like this would not resolve on its own. He suggested we wait until the hematoma starts to become like a "jelly" type substance and at that time he would drill a bore hole and suction it out. Leaving it there obviously was not an option. All I can say is if it weren't for Dr Smith the outcome would of been significantly different. I am greatf Dr Smith was aggressive in my mothers treatment.

Patient

We have been going to Dr. Baldwin for 10 months and he has yet to do anything to get my husband out of pain or fixed. He immediately referred us to pain management and that is where we have been for 10 months. Today when my husband went for his app. they gave him the results of his bone scan that was done 6 mo. ago but they never bothered to look at. I would not recommend this dr.
