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....more
