Patient Comments (50)

This doctor misdiagnosed my husband. He didn't believe the pain level he had and refused to MRI the area. He's been a doctor for many years and should truly retire! The practice was informed and did nothing! He is still practicing there!

Dr. Baker was very patient and thoroughly explained why I was having hip pain. I had many questions which he took the time to answer completely. He treated the problem and I felt better almost immediately. I would recommend him highly.

Had a completely torn meniscus in my left knee. Had a consultation with Dr. Baker. Appreciate his honesty in reviewing my MRI and going over my options. Surgical repair is an option but he also went over non-surgical options. He is very open and patient centered.

My first meeting with Dr. Baker was wonderful. He was very patient and clearly explained my issue and possible treatment. I am already feeling better (less than 24 hours after my visit). I would highly recommend him!
