About Me

As a former collegiate wrestler who underwent four knee surgeries, I am passionate about helping athletes and active individuals ward off the effects of old injuries and combat the effects of time on the injured joint. I have special clinical and research interests in using orthobiologic treatments that restore health to injured tissue, with the goal of stopping the damaging joint process. My goal for each patient is to eliminate sore joints, so they can maximize their quality of life.

    Dr. Baria was amazing. My unique circumstances mattered to him. I have already recommended him to my friends.

    All good, especially Dr. Austin Grant, the resident? who worked with Dr. Baria.

    he didn't seem interested in my concerns and was very dismissive. he was knowledgeable, but discounted the care I'd received from previous OSU providers with whom I had a better experience and provided better care. I won't reschedule with this provider. this was one of the first POOR experiences I've had at OSU, which is disappointing.

    Good - little arrogant.

    Dr. Baria was eager to provide relief for the discomfort in my knee. In addition, he was very clear about my options for treatment along with ordering the necessary tests to support his speculation.

  • Reviewed on Jul 01, 2020

    Dr. Baria was EXCELLENT. For the first time in at least 5 years, I am optimistic, and I have hope. As this was my first visit with him, I was really impressed with how well prepared he was - knew my history, and had a plan. I'm more hopeful than I've been in a very long time.
