I would highly recommend Dr. Baker. He and his staff are very friendly and professional. He explains what he will be doing before he does the procedure and what he found and did while doing it. I have complete relief from my symptoms now.

I recently underwent my first screening colonoscopy with Dr. Michael Baker and I cannot recommend him enough. He was everything you'd want in a doctor -- kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, ready to answer any and all questions -- but also efficient and skilled. Fortunately, I won't need another procedure for 10 years but I hope Dr. Baker is still available and practicing in Colorado Springs then! He provides outstanding medical care!

If you have to endure the prep for a colonoscopy, the bright point would be Dr. Baker’s sincerity and nice bedside manner the next day! Dr. Baker was cheerful, and humorous which I much appreciated. His staff is professional and friendly. The procedure went smoothly and I had no difficulties afterwards.

My mother really liked Dr. Baker, but we cannot get any follow through with issues my father is currently having. It seems that she cannot get passed the front desk to make appointment significant to "now". My father has had ongoing issues and problems with diarrhea for months and they want to book him an appointment for..."June"!!!! The doctor may be good, but when the support staff seems to know more than the patient and doesn't let the doctor know of the concerns, that's not a good team.

I have appointments with Dr. Baker quite frequently for a rare condition. Baker is honest, compassionate, very knowledgeable, and takes pride in his work. He always does a thorough job and is very observant. Baker and his staff are provide top quality care and teaching with a smile and are as efficient and proactive as possible. He treats his patients like people, not just a number. My family will continue to go to him for all gastrointestinal needs as long as he practices. Will recommend doctor Baker 10 times out of 10.
