What People Say About Dr. David Baker, DO

He did a hard sell for a spinal injection of steroids. In follow-up after I declined the procedure (I have had it several times before, it did not help), he gave me a prescription for a months worth of pain relief and discharged me from his care. I guess pain mgt is a profit and loss centered treatment, completely dissatisfied.

My experience with Dr. Baker was not what I had hoped for. I received anti inflammatory injections. Hurt so bad I thought I was going to scream. i think something went wrong. Then, to make matters worse, they didn't work. I tried to reschedule for additional injections; COULDN'T EVER GET ANYONE TO RETURN MY CALLS. After several months, I just quit calling and changed doctors. If you go to this doctor, I wish you good luck.

I found him to be very friendly and through. He answered all my questions and went over my MRI in depth so that I understood where the pain was coming from and why we were going to proceed with the recommended procedure first rather than what I had wanted and suggested. He listened to all my concerns and helped me to be completely aware of what he would be doing and how long it would take. I think he is one of the best Pain Management physicians in the Augusta, Georgia area.
