Patient Experiences

“I would begin this recommendation by telling you about Dr. Baruch’s expertise, but before that, I want to recommend Dr. Baruch as a Human. Because that’s what he is, first and foremost, a Human. A caring and amazing individual who goes beyond his role to help everyone. His kindness and empathy towards patients is something I haven’t encountered elsewhere. And not just towards patients—nurses, medical staff, Dr. Baruch sees and treats everyone as equals, speaking to them at eye level. And now, I’ll recommend Dr. Baruch as a physician. When Dr. Baruch is your doctor, the system works for you. This doctor managed miraculously to navigate through all the bureaucratic hurdles surrounding my treatment and hospital stay. Additionally, he visited me at the hospital regularly, and throughout the process, he kept a close watch on my well-being to ensure I received the highest level of medical care. I don’t know where I’d be today, And thank you for the lesson he taught me in being a good human!” – Anonymous.
