My mom was the patient. I'm a physician. I've seen dozens of physicians over the years, and of course know manyphysicians. Basically, you can't teach what Dr. Bax embodies in the way he treats patients. Pain management is a tough job seeing desperately unhappy and ailing patients. I do not see how there could be a better more caring more kind better listener than Dr. Bax. My mom is elderly and has seen many doctors over the last 10 years. Dr. Bax is probably the best person she's ever seen over that period. If you have an unexplained or a persistent pain problem and need someone with great bedside manner, Dr. Bax is the best. Period.

A quick but thorough diagnosis of my back problems with follow up appointments and MRIs ad all types of scans immediately booked. He did seem a bit hurried but I didn't feel rushed or overlooked. Definitely going back for follow up appointments. An "A" so far.
