Overall, unpleasant. Doc and I didnt' see eye to eye on vaccinations. She proceeded to pursue me to reconsider my stance by using age-old scare tactics that have been debunked. Rarely came down to our toddler's eye level. At one pointshe seemed annoyed at his crying when trying to check vitals. So sad my son had to experience this. She has one way of applying her training; not opened to alternative methods. Wish her well.

Visiting Dr. Baez was a very pleasant experience. As soon as I got to the doctor's office and turned in my paperwork, I was seen immediately. The appointment was pretty quick and efficient, but Dr. Baez answered all of my questionsregarding my daughter's care and next steps for vaccinations. The office is very clean and the office staff are friendly.

I went by ALL the other positive ratings - and just don't understand them. Took my 4 year old for annual vaccine and check up. INitially she was very sweet , but while giving a shot - gave no instructions orguidance. No proper system/chair/strap /room in place for this purpose seperately. She stood over us and pricked him in a weird angle - he started bleeding ! So reacted very wildly as he has NEVER seen blood flow out of his body like that before. there was a lot of blood .... then she went on to yell at him. AND yell and lecture me, about how Im letting him take control. I couldn't believe this experience and was greatly disappointed and appalled to say the least.

Her Office Assistant is rude and condescending. I arrived on time and I still was waiting an hour or more to be seen. I explained to Dr. Baez about the wait time and she blew me off. I don't recommend.
