I have been a patient of Dr. Baker for five years. He worked with me for almost 18 months with my diabetes and blood pressure and stayed focused until we finally got my labs under control. His dedication to my questions and treatment was excellent. I have recommended Dr. Baker to several of my friends and all of them are very happy with his treatments.
