Specialties

Dr. Paul L Baron has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery
  • Surgical Oncology

    Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
    Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Very Bad Experience

My experience with Dr. Baron was horrible. He and his staff were very dishonest with me regarding my biopsy results, they outright lied to me. They told me as little as possible about my tumor and seemed to get disgusted with me when I asked for answers. Dr. Baron spent more time bragging about being a specialist than explaining my condition, risks or options. I also learned, after the fact, that he ordered unnecessary imaging for me, presumably to run up the cost. I never saw him again after my surgery, not that day and not at any of my follow up visits, he left my care to his assistant. If you want a doctor you can trust and value honesty, please get a second opinion. The good reviews must be from women who think being lied to is OK, I know there a many who just don't want to know everything about their condition and possible outcomes because they find it "too scary". For me, trust is a much bigger issue.

One of the best doctors I have ever seen.

Dr. Barron is one of the nicest doctors that I have ever met. He spent as much time with me as I needed and explained everthing that was going to happen. I would recommend him to anyone needing an excellent surgeon.
