    in San Marcos, TX |
    Dr.Baker is very professional. My husband and I are both RN's and we love he is all business, he is distracted in a way because he is so focused on your condition. My husband broke his hip and had his surgery and follow-up by Dr.Baker. We LOVED how concerned he was about preventing infection, at the hospital and in his clinic. He said the wound on my husband's hip was "his" until he said he was done. These are priceless characteristic's for a doctor. we are so happy and infection free.
