Bethlehem, PA |
Dr. Baker is the best OB I have ever had. Straight forward, honest, caring and the definition of what a doctor should be .My husband was even impressed by him. When they took me in to get ready for my c section he was talking on the phone with someone and said " I am going to deliver a little baby right now". My husband said he was so excited when he said it and could really tell he loves doing what he does.

Dr. Baker is very warm and welcoming. He cares about my concerns and explains everything thoroughly. I am looking forward to having him deliver my little angel and continuing a relationship with him, Angie and their helpful staff @ St. Lukes Obgyn at Eaton Pointe

Dr. Baker really makes you feel at home when in his office. He's very knowledgeable, gentle and thorough. A very easy guy to like, even makes jokes which helps to ease anxiety.
