I would strongly suggest searching for a Dr. who is caring and empathetic, which are attributes I cannot ascribe to Dr Baum. Three and a half years ago, my dad and I brought my mom to the hospital with breathing issues. Finally, after several hours, Dr Baum came to the waiting room. She did not have the grace to admit that she was the one responsible for intubating mom, which caused a double perforation. This necessitated an emergency stomach operation or she would die of sepsis. This further compromised mom’s entire breathing situation. Later that week, Dr. Baum had the nerve to claim she had tried to find us before this, but she couldn’t have tried hard, because we were in that waiting room or by my mother’s side every single day, all day. The rep recorded both conversations with my family, during which Dr. Baum said my mom had “lousy lungs” 6 times within the first 12’, as well as “s**t happens”. . Mom was on a ventilator for 2 weeks before she passed away. Some of the personnel in the ICU area remarked that the stomach perforation was a major setback. My whole family found Dr. Baum to be coarse and utterly lacking in compassion and humility. I still have nightmares about this, which makes it harder for me to get past it all. In my profession of psychology, we advocate the venting of feelings to try to heal deep hurt. In doing so, with this review, I hope to also help others avoid a Dr. so lacking in the ability to feel the emotions of others, during traumatic health events.
