He takes Medicare money only when the crooked doctors want to have you ruled as incompetent. Do not dare go to his office with MEDICARE insurance.

I have seen Dr. Baker III for some 12 years. Dr. has a very large ego and, he appears to have little true care for me. I feel that I am just a number and, that is precisely what the Dr. is all about. "Numbers". How can I further promote " myself". How can I climb to a loftier wrung on the latter of sucess . He is not looking to promote better mental health for me. See entry here that Kristin Rapapport , my daughter writes about Dr. Baker III. following our family appointment on 5/11/17

I'd rate this man a 0 if I could. No compassion, very rude. Made my family and myself feel stupid in regards to my fathers Dimentia diagnosis. Talked down to me. Actually told me that I had cancer. Terrible visit. Would never recommend him to anyone, not even my worst enemy.

Dr. Baker acts cheerful and friendly but watch out for him. He is not on your side. He makes diagnosis to build his own business. He makes a lot of mistakes so get a copy of your records and review them carefully if you do see him. He can not be trusted
