We understand the decision to seek mental health services can seem overwhelming. People often will put off seeking mental health services out of uncertainty, fear of social stigma, or a belief that things will eventually work themselves out. We understand some of these barriers to seeking treatment can eventually lead to crisis. At Complete Psychiatric Services, we treat each patient as a unique individual. We NEVER double book appointments; your time is valuable and we spend that time focused on addressing your specific needs. We take the utmost care in preserving each patient’s right to privacy and dignity. We understand that the path to wellness is as unique as each of our patients. We are able to customize your treatment plan to include the utilization of family support and collaboration with other medical and mental health professionals. We work with each patient to develop a well-rounded, customized treatment plan to work toward achieving optimum mental health and stability in as little time as possible.

Upon graduating from his psychiatric training program in 1991 as Chief Resident, Dr. Baum moved to Cherry Hill, NJ. During this period, he and his wife started a family while she completed her fellowship in pediatric critical care. At this point in his career, Dr. Baum developed an interest in the administration of treatment for the seriously mentally ill and indigent populations. He began working as a Staff Psychiatrist at a Camden County Health Services Center, a psychiatric hospital and nursing home complex in Blackwood, NJ where he was promoted the following year to the position of Associate Director, followed by Clinical Co-Director. While working in this setting, he had the opportunity to work directly with medical students and psychiatric residents and developed a love of teaching. In 1998, Dr. Baum accepted a position at Saint Barnabas psychiatric hospital in Toms River where he became the Chief of Staff the following year. In 2002, Dr. Baum followed up on his love of teaching by becoming a Clinical Assistant Professor at what is now Rutgers Behavioral Health Center in Piscataway, NJ where he was recognized as Teacher of the Year. During this same period, he was also appointed as a Consultant for the Department of Psychiatry at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick. In addition, he served as Unit Chief for Acute Adult Services, which involved oversight of psychiatric emergency services, the adult inpatient unit and partial hospital program at University Behavioral Health Care, Piscataway, NJ.
