I had complications after my colonoscopy, and Dr. Baker and staff went above and beyond with their concerns. They were very caring, and demonstrated the highest degree of professionalism I have ever received from a medical staff. (Up there with my Cardiologist and staff.) -Charles Bruno-

Very positive. Everything was explained and forms filled out prior to the date of the procedure. The day of the procedure everything went as expected. All the personnel were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The report I was given after the procedure was thorough and very informative.
