He was professional and right to the point. I have a pinched nerve in my neck, and he told me ofa course of treatment that did not involve getting an MRI, racking up possible unnecessary bills. Highly recommend!

Waited over 30 minutes to see Dr. Baxi. Once I went into the exam room I saw him right away andwas out of the room in 5 minutes. I only needed a refill, and Dr. Baxi was very pleasant.

Working with Dr. Baxi on a sports injury, I feel very relaxed. He is a great listener and diagnosed my injury as well as pointed out other risk I should check up on. I appreciate his level of detail on prognosis& validates his conclusions, not just assumes things. I would recommend another visit with him.

My visit with Dr. Baxi has been excellent. The office staff are wonderful. Dr. Baxi spent the time to explain the treatment for my left knee arthritis. The gel injections treatments that I received were administered by Dr. Baxi. He explainedthe procedure, how I should feel and assured me that I would not feel any pain which I didn't. I did receive these injections 6 months ago at another practice which was a horrific experience. Dr. Baxi and his staff has been terrific and I would highly recommend them.

I had my pt set up an appoint with Dr. Baxi, and he saw me the next morning. I found the evaluation with him pleasant, and he explained the recommended procedure quite clearly. He said he was able to schedule in2 weeks. When I requested it sooner, due to my discomfort, he got me in 3 days later. It has now been 12 hours since the procedure and the pain has been reduced by more than 50%. I could not be more pleased. Thank you, Dr. Baxi!
