Dr. Richard A Baum has the following 3 specialties
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.
- Vascular & Interventional Radiology
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

I had tried another doctor at another hospital. The experience was not good. As a result, I can appreciate even more this practice. In every dimension the experience was excellent. They work hard to make the patient feel good. In addition the doctor is very skilled, knowledgable and treats his patients with the utmost respect and courtesy. Works hard to make the experience as good as it can be. I VERY strongly recommend him
Doctor never got back to me, my Primary Care Doctor would talk to him and his office would never call me back. Told me a doctors name after surgery never did a follow up with me and to my PC Doctor told him that she would not touch me. Funny I knew not to trust him.That Doctor did Five Surgerys and she told me she never said that or talked to him about me. Wouldn't take my dog to him.
