Dr Baker no longer accepts any insurances of any kind. I can't even get a claim form to file myself. He doesn't seem too interested in anything more than a simple cough or cold. He is a nice fellow though.

I have been treated by Dr. Richard Baker for 20+ years and have had excellent treatment for any health issue that I have had. Recently, I went to him for a nasal issue/bad head cold and sore throat. I saw him on Monday February 13, 2017 and told him my problem and he examined me and evaluated my situation, and gave me appropriate medications. The next day I was able to breathe easier, my head pressure had eased, and my coughing, and nasal issues continued to improve as of today, February 15
