What People Say About Dr. Joel Baker, DO
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Baker is the most caring,knowledgeable Physician I have ever been around. I chose Dr. Baker because my friend referred him to me after I had a bad experience with my previous OBGYN. Dr. Baker takes the time to listen to your concerns and thoughts and then gives his professional opinion of any situation you may be facing. He just recently performed surgery on me and I was very nervous. He understood why I was nervous and reassured me the entire way. He even called to follow up personally.

I have been a patient of Dr. Baker for over 9 years. He has been helpful and delivered my daughter. I highly recommend Dr Baker and I appreciate his insight and care and attention he gives me when I am in his office. Even when I call with an issue I receive a response within hours. I appreciate that he knows me by name even if he sees me in passing if I am at the hospital for another visit. He is by far the best OB/GYN I have ever had!
