Dr Baker. Is a wonderful Doctor. He helped me out, took away my pain in my left shoulder. Thanks Julie
in Boynton Beach, FL |
Although I've certainly met with Dr. Baker, it's otherwise been Physicians Assistant Gary Edman with whom I've visited for fractures in my right clavicle. I can't speak highly enough of Gary, who not only presents a professional demeanor, but is friendly and — you all know this is important — doesn't rush the patient. In today's medical climate, that's rare. I should also point out that the staff is likewise friendly and professional, and here's another biggie: THE PLACE RUNS ON TIME.

Went in for a broken leg. First visit, no DR was there & they were out of fracture boots. They ordered one, went back two days later & they ordered the wrong size. Said they'd reorder. Heard nothing back so I called (about a week now living with a broken leg that had no boot support at all), they said it was not ordered. Had to order a boot off AMAZON! Went back and insisted to see Dr Baker. Told him what happened. He yelled at his staff in front of me. Office was filthy, staff is incompetent!

Dr. Baker spent as much time as I needed and answered all my questions for surgery in two weeks. Thank you Dr. Baker!
in Port St Lucie, FL |

Pleasant experience, very knowledgable doctor, no issues!

And the reason why I give them two stars is because there's no way to know how that business business phone can be busy all day
Hi Latonya, Dr. Baker takes Private Insurance, Medicare and Obamacare Insurance. Patients are telling the staff, Dr. Baker's the only doctor from Port St. Lucie to Boca Raton thats accepting Obamacare Insurance. Your waiting time was 10-15minutes and a lot of four stars. Dr. Baker's main concern is taking care of all patients. Sorry, you feel the phone was busy all day. I hope that answered your comment. If you you have any more concerns please call the office. Thank you.

Worst Doctor ever, completely rude and didn't spend any time with me, didn't explained my condition and I ended up going to another doctor. He has like 5 offices and their office is a mess. Takes 3 hours to be seen and simply tasks like returning a phone call can take weeks. Stay away.
in West Palm Beach, FL |
Worst visit ever, I did not see Dr. Baker but what I guess is his PA, never introduced himself. I brought my x-ray and he said I had a torn Miniscus in my knee. He also said he was calling in a RX for a medicine that is not stocked in the pharmacy, that I would receive a phone call from drug co. I have waited several weeks, no RX and no phone call. I've called the office 5 times and each time told they are in clinic and will call back. Weeks later NO PHONESCALL. Bad office and bad doctor
in Boca Raton, FL |
Worst doctor ever!! We waited almost 1.5 hours to be seen by this guy. So he sends his PA in. She starts asking the same questions the nurse just asked 5 min. ago. The 2 offices he has in Delray and Boca do not comunicate to each other. The nurse in Delray office asked about my mother's weight and we told her she didnt know and asked to take her weight to which she replied that they don't have a scale. Medical office that does not have a scale? Office staff is pretty rude too. Steer away.

What a truly great experience.
in Fort Lauderdale, FL |
in Palm Beach Gardens, FL |
The worst Dr. visit I have had in my 35 years of life! He was impatient, did not spend time to speak with me, I had to tell him to even look at my MRI, then he came back and said it looks great. The MRI came from another prominent DR and was looked at by a specialist that is known around the world, they both said I had disk issues, same with the ER Dr. and I have pain down my arms, numb fingers, etc. Worst DR I have yet to encounter!
in Delray Beach, FL |
I would never recommend this Doctor, I wasted time being treated by this doctor's staff while my condition worsened. The doctor spent less than one minute saying hello during my first visit and was not in the office during my second visit, Had I been seen by a competent immediately, my surgery would have been scheduled a week earlier and less complicated.
