Doctor has a sense about my feelings, mood, situation and almost reads my mind - very much in touch!

Dr. Bauer is by far the best doctor I've ever had when it comes to listening to me, taking my concerns seriously and treating me like a real person.


Dr Bauer is the best! he listens to you and doesn't rush you. very compassionate too!


Dr. Bauer has been amazing in every way throughout this process. He has acted as a friend, helping beyond mere treatment, giving advice, supporting where it was needed and giving space for me to live my own life where appropriate. I have great respect for him as a doctor and I hope our health-building relationship continues for a long time to come.
