Patient Comments (2)
in Wicksburg, AL |
I went to see this "Dr" today for a torn muscle in my elbow, I know it's torn because you can see it protruding up from my arm and I saw my regular Dr. and he said it was but Baker said it wasn't, and he was so arrogant and rude, he did not even have the decency to look me in my eyes at any time I was there. I've been to The Hughston Clinic many times for all of my Orthopedic surgeries and this is the 1st time I've ever had trouble. If I could I would give him 1/4 star!
