Featured Reviews



The nurse & Dr. Baumgarner physically reviewed my referral records, discussed with me, plus listened to my thoughts on the subject, too. I was treated as a human; not, another dollar bill coming through!

Love Dr. B and her staff. The only thing I could say is the wait is long. However they stay busy so that is completely understandable. No complaints on any experience

We absolutely LOVE Dr Baumgartner!! She is the best OBGYN I have ever had and she really really cares and makes sure to answer every question or concerns you may have. I wasn’t lucky enough to have her for my 1st pregnancy but I did with my 2nd pregnancy and now with my 3rd pregnancy and I wouldn’t have it any other way :)
