Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The very best
He was my doctor for over a decade. He was everything you want in a doctor—patient, caring, knowledgeable, helpful, flexible. He listened. I can be hit or miss with doctors. He really navigated my issues well and struck a good balance with me, even when I was stressed about a health issue. It takes people skills to really do an excellent job as a doctor and he was the best. I’m beside myself that he is retiring. I’m not sure they make doctors like Dr. Baker anymore. I wish him the best!

I want to thank Dr. Baker for helping me with my stomach migraines, my foot and my bronchitis that I have today along with the Pennsylvania crud virus. He is the best doctor ever. Going to miss him when he retires the end of this year.

I received months of treatment for a inaccurate diagnosis. This caused me thousands of dollars when the ailment could have easily been accurately diagnosed. After months of pain, I went to a different physician who accurately diagnosed my condition and performed a needed surgical intervention.

Dr Baker is the best! He was my PCP for almost 30 years, and I wish he still was.
