Dr. Kelty Baker has been such a blessing to my family. She is extremely intelligent and down to earth. If it had not been for Dr. Baker, my 68 year old aunt who has sickle cell ,would not be here today. My aunts previous hematologist was giving my aunt tons of blood transfusions without removing the iron from her blood. Thanks to Dr. Baker, she informed us of iron overload and fixed the problem. Not only is she loved by her patients but she is highly respected among her colleagues and students

My Dad has been in the hospital for 9 weeks ago with life threatening issues. Dr. Baker saw him for the first time as on call doc. Dad developed a swollen/hot lump and as she examined it, she diagnosed it as one thing and I asked if it could be something else. Her response was incredibly defensive, sarcastic and condescending towards me. I tried to address her attitude but she turned her back on me. I don't care if she's a doctor or not, she disrespected me and that's unprofessional.
