Ratings for Dr. Michael L. Baron
Dr. Baron has been my Mother's doctor for many years. As she has declined in recent years, Dr. Baron has been flexible, understanding and cooperative as we have evaluated her mental and physical condition, adjusted medication and monitored her transition to Assisted living. While 'on-time' appointments are rare, once we begin he is patient and takes the time needed to discuss and address any concerns. Since he takes time with us I appreciate that those before us may also need the extra time he provides. He pays attention to prescription costs and always recommends low cost alternatives. He is personable and will take time to listen when questions arise.
I am EXTREMELY upset with Dr. Baron.He is arrogant, short, and condescending.Not sure what has happened to him over the years but I am not going to return to this practice.Yes, he is the doctor and I am the patient, but you do not dismiss me or my concerns.Simply rude.
I've been going to Smokerise for over 15 years and Dr Baron's approach has changed from a investigate get to the bottom root cause to a quick give a shot solution. Kathy the PA is more personable but has also taken that path as well. I regret having to change but my family needs someone who will sit and explain the issues and answer my concerns. Medicine is not exact, so time is needed to hone in on the problem despite how much experience one has and that whats missing from Dr Baron. He seems to have strayed from his DO training. The front office staff is very short and abrupt and helps to undermine the service that you should receive. Again i have moved on to another Primary Care Provider because i need more than a quick look-see and treat approach. My experience my different from others so good luck.
Dr. Baron is great! He has a holistic approach and minimal doctor ego. He also has a dry sense of humor and seems very genuine. The office staff is not very organized, however, and long waits are not unusual. Bring your patience, a good book, and a clear schedule and you'll do fine.
I have been a patient of Dr Baron for several years and always leave his office feeling happy. During my visits he has always made me feel like I was his only patient during that time. He doesn't rush and talks to you like a person, His assistant Cathy has always been very helpful and nice. I have even called his service after hours (once late at night) and he returned my call within minutes, Kudos to him and his staff
