The person inside of me will help you regain control and enjoy your life. I will personally be involved in your care before, during, after surgery... and through out your journey. My commitment to you is exemplified by the fact that I will provide you with my personal cell phone number so you can always get a hold of me. Michael Baptista"

Dr Baptista is a superior doctor, who really cares for his patients! He takes the time to meet with patients & family to discuss the options best for you! He is excellent in his kindness, caring & bedside manner. I have never had a Dr-who cares so much & is there for you! He gave me his personal number after surgery. I did call; he answered promptly and with care. He educates his patients not only on their surgery, but lifestyle, eating and exercise. I would highly recommend Dr Baptista!
