Dr Baker relay listens to me and spends time with me, instead giving me a pill and out the door I go. He truly seams to want to help me get better. He also helped my wife & mother with the same care and understanding he gives to me. I don't think there are many Doctors like Dr Baker.

new patient. I found it strange that Dr. Baker's office does not have access to a elevator considering that he probably serves a large amount of older patients.

06/17/2017
[...] An MRI was ordered for me. However, no insurance or other pertinent medical information was forwarded to [...]. This required multiple inquiries and follow ups from me to finally get the test scheduled and resulted in considerable delays in scheduling.
100

06/17/2017
Dr. Baker conducted my equivalent of a "death panel" with incredible understanding, and he was uncommonly attentive to my questions. His responses/answers will be implemented by me. [...] went through the [...] wellness sequence with me, and dealt with all of my answers in both good humor and careful attention. [...]
100

06/16/2017
I feel he is competent, personally available and listens carefully. I feel like an individual and not a number when I visit with him. I feel listened to and respected.
100

06/13/2017

04/09/2017
This appointment was a big improvement over our first appointment 6 months ago. Dr. Baker listened carefully this time. (I suspect he was a bit overwhelmed by a very complex medical history the first time around, but this time everything was under more control.) Better for both of us, I suspect.
100

03/29/2017
The visit was good. The results on the tests taken during the visit sent the next day were totally useless with out a subsequent visit to the doctor. The results were cryptic and baffling.
100

03/29/2017
This was my first visit to this care provider as our previous physician retired. Although it took 6 months to get this initial appointment, I was impressed with his care and felt very comfortable discussing my health issues and plan with Dr. Baker.
100

03/20/2017
I am a new patient for Dr Baker and he is taking the time to learn my health history and general condition.

03/15/2017
didn't get to back room until 35 -40 minutes after appt time. He did have a resident with him, and that likely contributed. we all have to learn, so I understand

02/09/2017
I was very pleased with Dr. Baher & his staff!
100

02/08/2017
The service Dr. Baker provides is outstanding. so of his office staff not so much. We have had scheduling difficulties, been turned away when a vaccination was needed. It is frustrating as a new family in this doctors care to have these time consuming hiccups. As well as difficult for children with anxiety over getting shots to have them postponed or have to go to an entirely unfamiliar provider. These incidents were not positive and have left a negative connotation in our minds. Thankfully Doctor Baker makes up for these hiccups in service with his great listening and care.
100

02/07/2017
He was excellent,thorough,friendly and a good listener.
100

01/27/2017
This was my first visit with Dr. Baker after the retirement of Dr. [...], my physician for 30 years. Dr. Baker had reviewed my records before the appointment and had made a thorough assessment. His questions were useful from the beginning. He suggested a new test and drug for a condition in me that has come up in the last year. He was good natured with smile during the whole time. I felt comfortable with both his advice and his attitude. He seemed sincerely concerned for my health. I have confidence in his medical knowledge. I look forward to receiving his care. Dr. Baker took up were Dr. [...] left off.

01/25/2017
Nothing bad at all, just had to wait a bit, but he apologized for that
100

01/25/2017
Dr Baker is pretty awesome!
100

01/11/2017
[...] I was not pleased with the time it took to get an appointment. This was due to the fact that my regular Internist of 10 + years retired and I had to wait 4 months to get an appointment as a new patient since Dr Baker is my new doctor. I was very pleased with the advice and style of Dr Baker.
100

12/29/2016
This was my first visit since my PCP retired. My previous PCP recommended him and I was very pleased with Dr Baker. He was very attentive to my questions and concerns. I did not feel rushed and he was very professional and easy to talk to. I feel he will be a very good fit for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a dr.

There was a long wait in the examination room of about one half hour before the health care provider came in to see me..
100

12/14/2016
He gets an A from me.
100

12/14/2016
Dr. Baker saw me for, what I thought, was a bladder infection. Later that day I passed a kidney stone. He recommended a cat scan due to my father's history of bladder cancer and the fact that I had blood in my urine.

12/10/2016
I was disappointed to have to wait over two months for an appointment for acute back pain and wait another two weeks for a PT app't after referral.
