Dr. Baker possess a very cold and uncaring demeanor his staff exhibits the same demeanor they are very abrupt also, Dr. Baker also runs very behind schedule definitely would not recommend him to anyone
in Columbia, SC |
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!
