Patient Reviews (6)
in Colorado Springs, CO |
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!
in Palmer Lake, CO |
Dr Baker personally, as well as each one of his staff whom I dealt with, were fantastic people who did their jobs well. Let's face it- the medical system has become increasingly bureaucratic and cumbersome to navigate as a patient. Especially so, once you get past your primary care doc and into the world of specialists. My experience with Dr Baker and his team was a rare, genuine pleasure, and that is saying alot considering the nature of their services and the procedure I had done!
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Extremely caring in what he does . I have to see him on a regular basis and he cares and informs me the entire way no matter what I may bring up as a concern.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Baker was very professional, courteous and knowledgeable. He took the time to answer my questions and made me feel very comfortable. Yes, I would highly recommend Dr. Baker.
