Dr. Baxter will always have a special place in my heart.. My fiancé was diagnosed with Stage 3 Liver Cancer & ordered Palliative Care... At the initial visit, Dr. Baxter's demeanor was very calm, professional & matter-of-fact... It was refreshing... And at the end, Dr. had Vincent transferred to Hospice House where the staff took care of US, as a family... (dr.even hugged me) His last hours were comfortable & he passed peacefully with dignity.. THANK YOU SIR FOR ALL YOU DO !! Jeannie J.

Dr. Baxter was with me from my first blood clot removal surgery till today. He is amazing compassionate and helpful. He helped me after my amputation and always listens to my mental and pain issues. He is one of the few doctors I truly trust.
