He became the Affiliated Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, Tenn., in 2014. Additionally, he is highly involved with the Research Department here at the West Cancer Center. Dr. Baum learned more about life when cancer entered his. Dr. Baum had always been passionate about patients. With all the time he spends with them, how could he not admire the lives he helps to save? Dr. Baum understood well the peril that cancer creates. But it wasn’t until his wife went through her own ordeal with cancer that Dr. Baum began to understand the life-changing power of the disease. She says that every day is a gift to her. Seeing what she went through, and being a part of her healing, opened his eyes to what cancer can do to unite families and help people reconnect with life. “We try everything we can to make patients feel comfortable and let them know they are in competent hands.”
