Dr. Baker is one of the friendliest, most competent neurologists I've ever seen. His bedside manner is above reproach. As far as his treatment plan, I can say with confidence his treatment regimens are working well for me, so I highly recommend Dr. Baker.

Loved Dr. Baker!! Great personality. Very thorough.
in Columbia, SC |
Dr Baker was referred by a friend. I checked out his great reviews but still very apprehensive. I've had migraines since my teens but over 5 yrs ago, they became daily and mostly severe. I have spent those years mostly in dark rooms with sunglasses always handy. My life literally stopped.He and his staff - wonderful. He is compassionate, surpassed my expectations, very knowledgeable, and the first to offer me a glimpse of hope and a chance to experience life again. Looking forward to the future!
