I haven't been able to make an appointment. The office staff is horrible. I've been on-hold and playing phone tag all day with no resolution or response.

I have been seeing Dr. Baker for 10+ years. I travel an hour because she is the most caring compassionate Doctor I have ever been treated by. She listens attentively and seeks to find a care plan that is suitable for the doctor and the patient. The staff is very professional and efficient. Many doctors could learn a lot about "bedside manners" and treating the whole patient from Dr. Baker.

The ER doctor I saw thought I could be having a flare up. They wanted me to see my rheumatologist asap. I called next day to get an appointment; I was told there weren't any until Feb next year . I explained my situation & what the doctor at the ER said. I was transferred to her team to leave a message. I left a message before 3pm and never got a call back that day like I was supposed to. The recording said if you leave your message before 3pm you get a call back the same day.
