It was my lucky day to have been scheduled with Dr. Baker. He is a straight shooter, got right to the point and discussed all my options in great detail. I felt extremely comfortable and trusted his diagnosis. After discussing the treatments available to ne, he brought in Dr. Ong to discuss the surgerical recommendation. I was extremely pleased with the entire staff from registering, x-ray and doctors evaluation. I highly recommend them.

Very efficient yet friendly and informative. Had shoulder pain and received a cortisone shot which was mostly painless due to a freezing spray. The only problem today was a wait time of over an hour due to a new computer system which was just installed. I never had to wait that long before so hopefully this was a one-time glitch.

This was my first time visiting him. I had to wait for 2 hrs. to see the doctor but it seems it was due to some new scheduling system they are moving to. After the initial paperwork with the medical staff, I could see Dr. Baker. He seemed upset with the staff for my long wait time. He promised to write to the management. He is obviously very experienced doctor and he quickly diagnosed my problem and gave me something for instant relief for my pain. I would definitely go back to him

My experience at the Roth Institute was a very pleasant one, the staff was very nice, they made me feel very comfortable and relaxed, and Dr. John Baker was excellent, from the time he enter the examining room to when we all said good by and have a nice day. ( FIVE STARS)

Dr Baker was compassionate and took the time to explain my MRI findings over the phone when I was unable to make an appointment due to a serious health scare unrelated to my knee injury. When I followed up with him in his office he made sure I was following the right steps towards my knee recovery.

Dr Baker helped me so much. He’s kind, soft spoken and gentle. I had myself convinced I’d need a new hip since I woke with extreme pain a few weeks earlier. It had gotten worse over time and I could hardly walk. I was concerned. With an X-ray it was discovered I only had bursitis. He gave me a shot of cortisone and a simple exercise to do at home and after a few days, I’m feeling great. Thank you Dr Baker!

Dr. Baker took great care of my shoulder today! He had a student from Jefferson following him around and explained in detail my right shoulder tendonitis from a calcium deposit. He gave me a painless cortisone shot and explained my further treatment! He has a great bedside manner!! Hopefully this shot will work along with therapy!

Dr. John Baker diagnosed my right knee after i knelt on a stone. Month after the initial injection in my knee, Dr Baker ordered MRI and it showed a tear to meniscus. Dr. Baker recommended arthroscopic surgery to address the issue with my knee. Dr. Baker took the time to examine my knee, did the correct procedure to address the condition and followed up with additional exams and treatment. I would recommend Dr. John Baker for his caring demeanor, skillful knowledge and desire to heal people.

Dr. Baker was wonderful. He gave me as much time as I needed, he was knowledgeable, he answers all questions and gave me terrific advice. On last visit he gave me a shot of Cortizone and tapped my knee with no pain at all. His diagnosis was spot on. I recommend him to everyone.
