Patient Comments (3)
My surgery with Dr. Bakker did not fix my knee pain. I honestly believe I was misdiagnosed as I have exactly the same pain after I recovered from surgery as I did before surgery. My family doctor told me I was low in vitamin "D". That seems to be helping. Dr. Bakkers staff did not seem interested in my feedback unless I was willing to pay for another office visit. I really thought he might be interested in learning what he could about my case but apparently not. I cannot recommend this doctor.

Horrible bedside manner. Rude and lacks the smallest amount of compassion. Will NEVER recommend this person.

Dr Bakker was the best experience I have ever had. He is very straight forward with his explanations of surgery. Both Dr Bakker and his staff are a very caring and concerned for your care. The check in phone calls from his nurse and Dr Bakker the days after surgery were a surprise and allowed me to ask any questions I had. I would gladly recommend this office.
