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.

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.

[...] 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.

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.

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.

All providers at this clinic are super nice! My son is always happy to go & they always try to answer all out questions. If they don't know they always say they don't & find an answer. We are never left guessing or uninformed.

The excessive waiting time for my last two visits, even first thing in the morning, makes me think they aren't on top of their work even thought the care was adequate.

I have seen Dr Baker for the last 5 years. Not all encounters have been smooth but in the last few years I can't imagine having to switch providers. Dr Baker has listened to me, provided medical advice in a way that lets us together make a good decision and has worked with me in my health care needs. I believe Dr Baker has used appointments as an opportunity to know me and my health needs in a very wise use of time for both your organization and also for me. No one likes sitting around waiting, including me and I have been promptly cared for by Dr Baker and his team
