After having a horrible first visit with a different rheumatologist, I was a little hesitant to see another one, but a co-worker I trust who had a similar experience the first time recommended Dr. Baker to me, and I am SO glad she did! Hands-down, Dr. Baker is one of the best physicians I've seen. I really liked that she is a DO because I know they tend to have more of a holistic approach to treatment. I really felt like Dr. Baker knew what she was talking about, explained everything at a level someone without a medical degree could understand, truly listened to me and asked great follow up questions that not only showed she was listening, but brought to light symptoms I never would have thought to bring up otherwise. All in all, it was a fantastic experience and I'm looking forward to continuing to receive care from Dr. Baker and her staff!

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.
