Ratings for Dr. Eric W. Baum
Excellent doctor. I like the fact that he usually performs whatever procedure is needed right then and there, rather than taking one appointment to "look" and making you schedule a second appointment to do something about the problem. I like the fact that he doesn't waste time but gets straight to the diagnosis and treatment. It's easy to schedule an appointment and the wait times are short. He has a good "Blue Light" department for Blue Light preventive treatments. Overall, I'm very satisfied with Dr. Baum. I've been seeing dermatologists in three states for 20 years for frequent spots of basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma, so I have a lot of experience with dermatologists. Dr. Baum is a good one! I read all the negative reviews on here and I really can't understand it, because I find him to be very caring and competent. No, he doesn't spend a whole lot of time visiting with you, but that's fine by me! He gets straight to the problem and takes care of it -- and usually treats you at once rather than forcing you to reschedule. I like him!
On first visit my young daughter was prescribed a strict face washing regimen with antibiotic creams that have to be refrigerated, topical gels, even cetaphil to wash with and a lotion. A lot for a 12 year old. VERY expensive and not effective for her acne. On follow up he asked her to describe how she had been using prescribed meds and when she got to med part she said "then I put the white stuff that stays in the fridge on".. His face turned red and he YELLED at her, "I don't want to know white stuff, I need the names!!!!" These were really long names like clindamycine. Very hateful, unprofessional & rude!!! We changed to Kirkland clinic and are very happy. Ironically my husband went there for some moles and he was ok with him. I guess he knows better than to treat a man like that...can't bully them!!!!! Worst doc ever. I have also seen him be horrible to nursing home patients in the past. Staff not real friendly either!!!
Dr entered in a rush, asked what I needed, did not give me a chance to discuss my needs. Forced the issue to the one I was in most need of. Rude and short in manner. Met my minimum requirements and left me feeling that my visit was a great imposition on him. I was glad to get out of there.
