On a scale of 1-10 my experience was a 15! Highly recommend Dr. Bakker & team! After years of pain, debilitation, and hand starting to atrophy I am, a few months after carpal tunnel release, working at a physical job! All aspects of procedure excellent and Dr. Bakker is a gift to humanity.

I met Dr. Bakker when he repaired my partner's broken wrist, and was impressed by his manner and medical acumen. A year later, when I needed surgery on my shoulder after an accident, I thought of Dr. Bakker and contacted his office. He spoke thoughtfully and knowledgeably about my situation and how he could help, and I felt very comfortable with him as my surgeon. Everything went well and he seems to be happy with the outcome and my post-surgery progress.

I had a large growth on my finger than needed to be removed and a biopsy. Dr. Bakker and is staff were wonderful. Nothing was rushed, he took time to explain things and answer questions. He was on time or early for appointments (rare in my experience). The surgery went smooth and the results excellent. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I was referred by another doctor to see Dr. Bakker. I have seen multiple doctors over the last 3 years with a wrist problem and kept getting different answers. That all ended when I saw Dr. Bakker, as he knew right away what the problem was. Very thankful he did my surgery and it couldn't have gone any better. I will also be doing my next surgery with him. Everything was explained thoroughly, and the staff was excellent. I would highly recommend him to anyone

I was referred to Dr. Bakker for bilateral carpal tunnel release. I found Dr. Bakker to be very thorough, making sure I understood the procedures and what to expect in the end. He is personable and even though this is a run of the mill surgery for him, I felt like he was right there with me considering it to be the big deal it was for me. His office staff is excellent and his Care Coordinator is WONDERFUL! I am so thankful for all of them! I highly recommend Dr. Bakker.
