Care Philosophy

WHAT SETS HIM APART: " In this age of information technology, the simple art of communicating with the patient too often seen to have been lost," Dr. Baker says.  "It is my philosophy that each patient should be heard no matter how long it takes.  Every patient has a story to tell, and I believe it is the responsibility of the physician to listen and talk to each and every patient.  Patients seek compassion and understanding from the physician, and that is what I have dedicated my practice to for over 25 years."

GREATEST PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENT:  He has been married for 27 years and has helped raise two wonderful daughters.  Dr. Baker is also listed as a member of "Leading Physicians of the World"

OFF HOURS:  Dr. Baker is a collector of fine art and a jazz music connoisseur.  He collects antiques and rare cognacs and enjoys the outdoor world, especially bass fishing.

Dr. Baker is a wonderful doctor & genuinely cares about his patients. I've been going to Dr. Baker since 1999. Because of Dr. Baker's diligence in diagnosing my medical condition, I am alive today. He found a baseball-size tumor in my colon, which he caught in time so I could have a successful surgery and chemo. I will be forever grateful for Dr. Baker. If you're in the Orlando area and need a gastroenterologist, you must call Dr. Baker. I can't recommend him and his staff highly enough!
