    in Apple Valley, CA |
    Our experience with Dr. Baker has been amazing. Dr. Baker and his incredible team not only is professional but has an outstanding knowledge of cardiac surgery and diseases of the heart. My husband required cardiac surgery. Dr. Baker performed an amazing surgery for my husband, humbly explained the process and assured us the surgery would be a success. God not only gave way for us to be with Dr. Baker but to have excellent exceptional care by the whole team at USC.
