I had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Baker 3 times over the last several years for routine exams. Each was performed in an exceptional manner from beginning to end. Procedures are explained throughly and you are put at easy throughout your visit. The entire staff is very professional and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend. Keep up the outstanding work.

I mentioned to him prior to my procedure that I was having issues with my insurance company concerning infusions for ulcerative colitis. He is going the extra mile to see if the infusions can be performed at home or a clinic setting which would reduce my cost for each fusion

Outstanding online and in person services from Associates in Gastroenterology staff in preparation for visit and procedure. Day of procedure, everything went smoothly, efficiently and friendly. Directions clear. Dr. Baker was wonderful explaining everything pre-operatively. Afte the procedure, he fully and clearly explained the results and any required follow-up and optional procedures. This is my 4th procedure at AG with Dr. Baker and I will return to him for any GI issues in the future.

Dr. Baker was professional and made me feel more at ease concerning my procedure. His office staff is efficient. They have a process that they followed which gave me confidence that even though the procedure was not routine for me, they knew exactly what needed to be done and gave me every opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues. When one nurse said Dr. Baker would talk with me before the procedure and after; he did just that. I knew I was in good hands.

Dr. Baker explained my procedure in detail and answered all of my questions before the procedure. After the procedure, he gave me a complete report of everything found during the procedure. He's very friendly and I felt very comfortable before and afterwards. I would highly recommend D. Baker to my family and friends.

I’ve had excellent care from Dr. Baker for the past 4 years. The staff in the Gasto-Endoscopy Center is fantastic and the environment is welcoming. Thanks to all the nurses and MAs that took care of me this week. And thanks for keeping me educated Dr. Baker.

Working with Dr. Baker's office was an absolute joy. Every staff member was outstanding. Special accolades to Joan, my admitting RN. She was absolutely amazing and wonderful. Everything was explained clearly, I had no questions, and the entire staff worked tirelessly to make sure any anxious feelings I had were kept at a minimum. A great experience.

Very easy to talk with and has a great sense of humour. I only saw him in the hospital and again the day of my procedure but he always made me feel very comfortable. If I had questions about anything he always took the time to fully answer them and made sure I understood the answer without making me feel rushed.

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.

Dr. Baker and his staff are very easy to talk with, genuine, and they (and he) wanted to answer my questions and help put me at ease. The nurses and anesthesia specialist were all great. I had a good experience and they even helped put my wife's mind at ease answering her questions about fasting and nausea as she approaches her first screening colonoscopy a few years down the road. Thank you!
