AWFUL SERVICE and POOR TREATMENT! My significant other has seen Dr. Bauer three times. She has misled him on promises to reduce his medicine dosage. She has sent a letter, appropriate for a child who missed class, reprimanding him for missing one appt and copied his former doctor. She missed an appointment with him and sent a substitute to meet with him who didn't read his chart. On another visit, her office manager threatened to call the police when he asked politely to talk with the Dr. outside of his appointment. This office treats patients like they are beneath them, with contempt, and in ways that no professional should tolerate. RUN from this office and find ANY other endocrinologist you can.

As a long time client of State Farm, Michael Mowdy has been my agent of choice for nearly 10 years! He and his team are incredibly helpful, attentive to detail, and friendly. The questions I have (even the ones that I think are stupid!) are always answered promptly, thoroughly, and effectively. Michael and his team get the job done well and right and always go above and beyond to take care of their customers! It is a joy to call him my insurance agent and to have him looking over my health, life, auto, and home policies!
