Testimonials

“Dr. Baer and his staff were nothing but professional, intelligent, and ultimately I owe them for helping me get my life back on track. I recovered from a nasty ligament tear much faster than I could have ever hoped. I can't vouch for any of the other surgeons, but I can assure you: if you are asking for Dr. Baer, you will be in the absolute best hands possible.”
