    I cannot recommend Dr. Baker enough. I have had diabetes for most of my adult life, and always had a hard time controlling it. Dr. Baker was the first doctor who was able to help me get it under control. She is very pleasant to speak with, she takes the time to talk to you and to help you understand what is going on, what the medicines do, etc. She's also very knowledgeable and very thorough.

    Dr Baker is the best physician I have seen in a long time. I will continue to see her for my Endo needs. So far only one office visit but we had many discussion thru the IU patient system. Response time usually 1 day or less and we have changed med dosage and discussed results of labs and imaging (MRI). First appointment was hard to schedule (long wait for appt - several months) - new patients. However, I am glad that I waited. Dr. Baker has great patient interaction.

    She took the time to discuss each issue or concern I had during my first visit. After she received my lab report,I received a call from the office with the results. I feel that she now knows enough about me to make accurate diagnosis.
