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!

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 |
