All of my office visits since have been comfortable and convenient. I will say that something about Dr. Baum that really stood out to me came during my recovery when I began to retain a small amount of fluid after my drains were removed. I had to go in a few times to have the fluid removed via needle and I felt as though Dr. Baum was very conscious of respecting my body and boundaries as my own. Many doctors seem to become desensitized to boundaries people have and sort of treat our bodies as their own in what can sometimes feel very frightening and make us as patients feel very vulnerable. Dr. Baum always made me aware of what was going to be done and did it in such a way that I felt he truly cared not only about my physical comfort, but my emotional comfort as well. I feel as though he has a great ability to balance a patients boundaries with a gentle way in which to make sure his own job is being done appropriately and effectively. I have had surgery five times previously and never had this good of an experience with all of them combined. I recommend Dr. Baum to every single person I know.
