  • Nicest Dr , I have ever been to, I would recommend him to any & everyone, he came & got me & said I'm early and I said that's ok, I'm early. I have raved about how good he is, made me feel very comfortable. This is the best experience I've ever had.

  • Both times I have met with Dr. Baum, he has been very kind and is obviously knowledgeable of lots of conditions. I also appreciate that any time I have sent an email to him through the Vanderbilt website, he has been quick to respond and my questions were answered.
