Dr B was my physician through two pregnancies and the births of my children and for awhile after that. He was always kind, honest and funny. He made you feel he cared for you like family, yet always professional. He was someone you could trust. So sad to learn that he has passed..... a very special person.

I worked with Dr. B for many years at DDB. He was an excellent physician, funny and always willing to spend extra time explaining medical issues. I considered him a friend and will truly miss him.

busy. Shirley Eckert

Dr Michael Baumblatt was a doctor dedicated to his work at the SSA disability program. He was my coworker and my friend. I always appreciated his advice on medical issues and his quick wit on non-disability issues. I am very sad to read of his passing.
