After seeing him for 2 years, I find he is not all that helpful. When calling/crying for help from the pain, I got think of good things. I even gave him another chance after that and now I'm being ignored. Great in the beginning but falls short when one really needs him.
I love Dr. Baak! He has made an incredibly positive difference in my life. Yes, he swears and tells off color jokes, personally I enjoy his sense of humor, others may not. But, he's an excellent doctor in a field where a lot is based on clinical judgment and experience and thats what counts. His attention may be need redirected at times (especially since they added computer charting) but he is never offended by this, and I never leave feeling my concerns were not addressed. I wouldn't change doctors for the world!
In all honesty, this is the worst doctor I've ever been to. First, he was over an hour late in even arriving at the building. Second, his bedside manner was horrible. Third, he didn't even examine me. Fourth, he had no problem using profanity. Lastly, it was later discovered (by another physician) that I had two autoimmune disorders. I was highly disappointed with this physician.
The "map" provided to me by mail before my appointment was terrible... I was lost for an hour before finally finding the place. Dr. Baak did little to address my concerns with medication side effects (in fact he added to them) and therefore I elected not to take the prescribed medicine and have since found another rheumatologist.
