Dr Baker is one of the most caring doctors around. She takes alot of time with you and I trust her alot. I had gone to another one of the doctors in that office and that was a horrible experience. The other doctor was very rude and could have care less about me being there. Then called back awhile later and told them I wanted to see Dr Baker and they let me change doctors. Am so thankful for Dr. Baker. She is truly a blessing

I saw Dr. Baker for an appointment for the first time after hearing excellent reviews. I was just wanting some help clearing up my skin (getting rid of acne scars etc..). I did not want to be on medication. The second the nurse walked in, she told me Dr. Baker had somewhere else to be and they were trying to keep her on schedule. I found that to be extremely rude to be the first thing to say to a brand new patient when walking through the door. She then acted so rushed that I thought something was wrong. When Dr. Baker finally came in, she was also extremely rushed, never even asked what I was currently using on my skin, and then just immediately suggested putting me on oral medication. It was like she was just trying to get me in and out. It was a waste of my time and it was definitely not right if their office to rush me through my appointment just because she had a flight to catch. I was very dissatisfied and decided to go see another doctor in town.

All of the high reviews you are seeing here is not a fluke. They are 100 percent truthful and factual. Absolute sweetheart of a doctor, thorough, accurate, and generous. Took care of my basal and squamous cell carcinomas. I have seen a few dermatologists over the years who have been in the profession for a long time. Hands down she outperforms them all. Thank you Dr. Baker!

Very thorough and has a very kind and caring bedside manner. I have recommended her to several friends and family. She’s unlike any other dermatologist I’ve ever been to, as she is NOT a “cur happy” Doctor! Hope she stays in the Shreveport/Bossier area for years to come!

My mother and I received excellent care from Dr.Baker. My mother (91 years) regularly has basal cell skin cancers removed. Dr, Baker is extremely kind and thorough with her. She is also my regular dermatologist for my DH and CTCL. So very glad we found her after our prior doctor retired.

She was excellent with my seven year old son who was very fearful of coming to the doctor ! She eased his mind and was very soft spoken and explained everything she was going . Would highly recommend Dr Baker :)

I've been going to dermatologists since I was in middle school and still have constantly had skin problems. Dr. Baker is the first Dermatologist to actually sit with me and have a discussion about my skin problems/the things I've used in the past to figure out what would best work for me. This is the clearest my skin has ever been, thanks to her. Highly recommend, the wait is a little long but worth it.
