Dr. Baker has a thorough knowledge, care and concern for my condition. If he doesn't know the answer he will say so and get back with excellent information. I've used him for over 15 years - and I absolutely know he will fight with the insurance companies for appropriate medication and care. Additionally, he has a friendly and responsive staff. The portal is well managed too.

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.
