Dr. Baker was very thorough, attentive, knowledgeable and professional. He expedited my care for my knee injury and I was able to get an MRI within the same week of my initial visit with him. He also explained with MRI results in great deal and set me up to meet the surgeon within the week who will be doing my surgery. The Rothman Institute has been a great experience considering what I am going through which makes the process a bit more tolerable. I highly recommend Dr. Baker and his services.

I have been taking my Mom to Dr. John for the past couple years. We think he's great, always hits the mark with the shots to her knees. Dr. John has a warm smile and a gentle manner.

I went to Dr. Baker today -- because Dr. Ong was not available --Dr. Baker was a breath of fresh air to me he was very professional in his presentation and gave me the facts as they are---- he explained the pros and cons of having a knee replacement at this time --I choose the shots in the knee they have lasted for 10 months in the past and hopefully will do the same this time. ---He said that in the future that you may need a knee replacement that Rothman is the best and Dr. Ong is at the top .

He was very thorough. He explained the condition of my knee. Both physical appearance and the X-rays. Then after that he gave me the three options and their outcome of what I could expect for each option. It was strictly up to me to make the decision depending on my pain or limitations. The climate of the visit was relaxing. I did not have any anxiety. The treatment was perform with complete confidence and no pain. He was congenial and made a apprehensive situation pleasant.

I adore Dr. Baker ! He is sympathetic, empathetic and just generally nice. He actually listened to me and appeared interested in what I had to say. Sadly, I have not always had that experience with doctors. I have faith in what he tells me and I trust his opinion. What more can I ask for ? Mary Wootten Steger

Dr. Baker takes the time to listen to your issues. He was able to diagnose my shoulder pain with a few manipulations of my arm and develop a treatment plan. This is my second time seeing him. I felt confident revisiting Dr. Baker because last year he was able to diagnose a different issue I was having and come up with a treatment plan which relieved the pain.

Dr. Baker is a wonderful physician and healer. Dr. Baker made me feel better and assured from the first visit. He spent time with my husband and I and explained all my options. I need two knee replacements but due to heart issues the Dr suggested orthovisc shots for now. My knees feel better and the good Doctor's untiring efforts on my behalf are greatly appreciated. Dr. Baker's nurse Laura is also very helpful, courteous and professional. Dr. Baker is an asset to Rothman Institute. Thank you
