This was my first visit with Dr. Baez ( my previous Dr. Was Dr. Bibawy) and I was very satisfied with the level of care he provided. I was aware that he was on a tight schedule as my appt was rescheduled to an earlier time to accommodate Dr. Baez' going on call due to the approaching hurricane. Despite this, he did not rush through the visit. He took the time to listen, ask questions, and provide thorough explanations for my treatment plan and for the questions I had.
