The office visit went smoothly. Courteous and pleasant staff, short wait time. I felt I was in good hands with Dr. Baker. He answered all my questions and added good advice. He did a full evaluation and ordered the appropriate tests. And yes, I would definitely recommend Dr. Baker to family and friends.

Got assigned Dr. Baker as my cardiologist when I changed from Kaiser to Aetna HMO. Had a heart attack in June 2015 and had stints put in. Intro meeting with Baker didn't go well at all. He refused to order a blood text to test my cholesterol and wouldn't even open the CD I brought with me to look at my old Kaiser records instead told me my Bad cholesterol must be memorized when I come in but wouldn't order a blood test for it. Now I have to another heart dr. Didn't know when to get off plavix.
