He listens to you which is high on my scale and responds in lay language. You don't feel rushed.

He wanted to make sure that the reason I'd been in the hospital wasn't due to anything careless on his behalf.

Think I caught Dr. Baum on a rough day, he was obviously running behind as I didn't see him until an hour after appt time (which is perfectly fine), but he was edgy and dismissive. I can understand being behind schedule and stressed, but I felt that he showed no concern for my issues, nor did he offer any treatment plan. He essentially suggested I explore other realms of medicine. Not to mention, this was prior to any lab testing. He dismissed me before he had any data to draw conclusions from.
