Fantastic, incredibly trained surgeon. Has performed numerous procedures on my special needs child. I don't think I would have watched her graduate this year without Dr Baldwin. Has been her surgeon for over 20 years. Can't say enough good things

After suffering horrible pain over one year, lumbar shots half way working and no pain meds, surgery was finally done. My six week follow up was rescheduled so it was an eight week follow up. I made my pain pills last until appointment. I told doctor I still had pain and physical therapy was painful and took two days for pain to diminish to point where I could feel like doing something like fetting out of bed. I had a few pain pills left over. He asked if I needed more pain meds and I said yes. He look disgusted. I signed an agreement that said he will provide pain pills for three months after surgery. It is lie! He said I should not have any pain and would not give me any more. I have never abused any drugs, dont drink or smoke. I am tired of being in pain. I hurt and hurting delays healing. I am cancelling physical therapy and not going back for follow ups. I cant function because of surgical pain. Most doctors judge patients on looks, how well they dress, past medical history. Good looking people get better care, so I have to assume I am not good looking enough to get pain relief from a painful surgery. Dont use this doctor. I am hurting bad. Everyone heals different and feels pain different and a neurosurgeon should know this but Baldwin does not care

I had ruptured discs for over one year. In horrible, horrible pain from pinched sciatic nerve. I never asked for pain mmedicine. Baldwin finally sends me to get lumbar shots and physical therapy. I asked for pain meds to get through physical therapy and was denied. The shots took away about 50% of pain. Baldwin finally did surgery. No one called the next day to see how I was doing, as is customary after surgery.

The BEST! Dr. Baldwin is an excellent physician and surgeon. He is also an amazingly kind, gifted, generous, considerate, conscientious and honorable Man! His sense of humor is superb. He always has a smile and the time to answer any questions or offer additional information regarding any issue he thinks will make me a more informed patient. He cares about his work and about the tremendous responsibility he holds. He cares about his patients and his community. I wish there were more doctors that had his intelligence, personality, and fortitude. He is a treasure to the medical community in Tucson, AZ and I am very fortunate that he is my surgeon. He is the BEST!

Dr Baldwin has saved my life. Without him and his expertise I would still be in the wheelchair that I used for the last 6 months. When I cried because I was afraid he held my hand and spoke words of comfort. I owe my current way of life to him.
