About Dr.B


My experience has taught me that the best outcomes are achieved when parents, caretakers and providers work together as an interactive, communicative and respectful team.

Dr. Baumgaertel is board certified in Pediatrics and Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics. She received her medical degree and doctorate from the Free University in Berlin, Germany, and completed her postgraduate training in New York. After first practicing general pediatrics in Brooklyn, NY, she has devoted herself exclusively to the practice of developmental-behavioral.pediatrics. She has been on the faculties of SUNY-Downstate Medical School in Brooklyn, Vanderbilt University Medical School in Nashville, TN, and The University of Pennsylvania Medical School in Philadelphia. She has worked and lectured internationally, and has performed original research in immunology, ADHD, and Autism.   

Dr. B is German-American and grew up in South-Eastern Ohio. She returned to Germany for secondary education and medical school. Her son is now going to medical school at her alma-mater in Berlin; her daughter is currently getting her Masters in Public Health in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Baumgaertel’s extracurricular interests are in gardening, art, music, and outdoor activities.
