BOOKS BY DR. BAUM
Dr. Baum has written six books some of which are available on Amazon.com
This book is an awesome tool for all women. I really wished I had this book right after my first child was born in 1998. I, too, am one of those women who lived in silence about what I realized was a real medical issue, stress incontinence. At first I didn’t talk about it with my husband or my sister, who has kids and is a nurse. However, one year was long enough for me before I went to the doctor and started asking questions. But many women wait 5-10 years before seeking help. This book provides much- needed answers to many women’s health issues. As I near perimenopause, I find his book to be useful to me in my present life. It really is for women of varying ages, as we all go through things at different times and stages of our lives. I love how the authors provide information on different medicines, list of questions to ask your doctor, and drawings that help with understanding it all–not to mention everything is in layman’s terms. Thanks for putting this resource together to answer all our questions about “down there.”

“Most clinical practices are not prepared for a disaster, and failure to prepare for a disaster can have devastating consequences on a medical practice, the physicians, and the patients. Disaster Planning for the Clinical Practice describes the types of disasters that can affect medical practices, suggests steps for disaster planning, and identifies the necessary procedures for restarting the practice after a disaster has occurred. Natural disasters are not the most common cause of practice failure – man-made disasters such as computer crashes, power outages, and loss of electronic data are more likely to impact a medical practice. This book offers suggestions on the preparation of a disaster plan that can be easily implemented into any health practice, and discusses how to overcome both natural and man-made disasters. Each chapter features true disaster case studies, questions doctors or office managers need to answer, and step-by-step recommendations for the implementation of the disaster plan, as well as dozens of templates and forms ready for immediate use. This is an essential resource for all practices large, small, rural, and academic.”

Drip, Drip, Drip-When the Prostate Gland Causes Constant Dribbling
Some men have a blockage to the flow of urine and the bladder no matter how much it contracts or squeezes cannot fully empty the urine contents residing in the bladder. As a result, there may be a constant dribbling of urine. This is referred to as overflow incontinence. Overflow incontinence is more common in older men and is often due to an enlarged prostate.
5 Things Men Should Know About Benign Prostate Gland Enlargement
Benign enlargement of the prostate gland is natural consequence of aging. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) will be present in about one quarter of men by the time they reach the age of 55. This figure reaches 50% of all men age 75 and older. The prostate gland that produces fluid for the transport of sperm and surrounds the urethra that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body, can have a tendency to grow with age for reasons not entirely known and results in compression of the urethra resulting in symptoms of decrease in urine flow, dribbling after urination, and getting up at night to urinate.
