Patient Comments (2)

You will wait that's true.. I've waited as long as 4 hours but it's completely worth it. I went to doctor Baker needing a second opinion on my loss of vision I'm 29. The previous doctor, who I'd like to name but I won't, told me that my vision will correct its self and there was nothing they could...more

I arrived for appointment with Dr Baker and I was 7th in line for same appointment time. When I asked about this I was told I would be there at least 2 1/2 hours! I'm sorry this is unacceptable.... Promptly cancelled. Will not return or recommend.
