Very caring physician. Explains things well until all questions are answered. His assistant , Teresa always returned my calls and explained when and where to go for tests and procedures and when to start and stop meds.

We have no problem with the work Dr Baker has done for my husband. However, the office staff leaves a lot to be desired. We have called repeatedly and left messages ... none of which are returned. We needed Baker's approval to have a MRI, but no matter how many times we called they never called Trident Hosp back with the approval. Now we are trying to change doctors, and BAKER doesn't release whatever it is that takes the report from my husband's pacemaker every evening. Waiting approx 2 month

My A-Fib was misdiagnosed since childhood (60 yrs ago), and Dr. Baker was able to provide a correct diagnosis. For the past 10 years, he has performed 2 ablations, and fine-tunes my heart meds to suite my needs. I appreciate his thoroughness and no-nonsense manner. The office wait-times are in-line with other physicians I have seen. I cannot ask for better cardiac care; I highly recommend him to those seeking treatment for heart issues. Thank you, Dr. Baker & staff, for your excellent care!

I would not recommend Dr. Baker as his staff never answers the phone or calls back after leaving messages.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Baker. He has treated my dangerous heart arrhythmia for over 5 years. Recently, he did an ablation on me and it appears that the procedure was a success! This is a life changing event for me and I am so grateful to Dr. Baker and his team. I was awake for the procedure and got to see (and hear) firsthand how competent, determined, and skilled he was in handling this. Thank you Dr. Baker for changing my life! I will not take this for granted :-)
