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!
