From the first time I was diagnosed with a strange and new platelet disorder called ITP. Dr Baker was there. He listens and answers any questions no mater how crazy and points you in the best path for managing your health. I would recommend Dr. Baker again and again.

While Dr. Baker (Massey) did not find my stage 3 lung cancer, I do have to give credit where is due. His original RX for treatment was perfectly mixed with chemo and radiation treatments to remission ends. However, the follow up was 'over kill' as he wanted further chemo treatments when my cancer was / is in remission. Remission found at MD Anderson in Texas. Additional chemo would have killed me. in the middle of finding another oncologist NOT referred by Dr. Baker. No more room to type.

I am so comfortable being treated by Dr Baker. He uses his keen intellect to find the right treatment to fight my cancer and ensures that the pain and negative consequences that often come wth cancer treatment is mitigated. Dr Baker listens intently and his empathy and sensitivity is easily felt. I feel fortunate to have his medical care.
