What People Say About Dr. Scott Baker, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Had a hemroidectomy on 6/2/17. Dr Baker was very brief and arrogant in explaining anything to me prior to surgery. At my follow up, he did not even do a physical exam despite me telling him I was still having issues. Now over a year and a half later I have more problems than before I had surgery. He spent maybe 5 minutes with me. My primary care doctor examined me and stated that it didn't look like I had surgery at all. Worst surgeon I've ever experienced.

Wreckless with clear determination to stick to his path no matter what. Gastly recovery and explosive incompetence. How does Avera let him continue practicing?!?!

Made a surgical error and failed to correct the issue in time resulting in the death of a family member. Arrogant and incompetent. I would never let him near me or someone I love.

He accommodated our young daughter being present after the exam. All questions were well, but briefly answered. Surgery results seem excellent.
