Wylie Tx |
Dr. Baker is a wonderful doctor! He is very friendly and kind. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients. He took time with our daughter to determine what was wrong instead of just writing a prescription and rushing away. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.
Plano, TX |
I arrived at my 3 o clock appt at 3:15. After speaking with nurse on the phone before hand, who assured me i could be seen if I was there by 3:15. However, my son was not able to be seen, and the nurse was uncaring about my predicament. I understand, that the doctors time is valuable.... however, had i been told over the phone that I would not be seen.. I would've rescheduled at that time. Instead of rushing to get there just to be turned away.
We are so sorry to hear this, and for the late reply. You are correct to be upset if you were told on the phone it would be OK. We have reviewed this issue with our staff.
