Dr. Baum is by far the most attentive, curious and competent Endocrinologist I have had in my adult life. He has more knowledge than most will ever have and yet he still enjoys learning more. Docs like him are the reason for the great advances in Type 1 Diabetes treatments. I am so very grateful that I can just be honest with him about all things compliant and about days where I am not so good at behaving! He's the best for a cranky old girl who's been on this journey for so many years.
