Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Has always been great to me. 5 stents in the last 15 years, two pacemakers. Have to remember when he has to cancel at the last min. HE IS A HEART DR. And maybe he was saving a life.

Dr. Baker moved to a Primary Care Clinic in Gulfport, MS. The office has extremely cramped rooms and the head of the examining table hits the wall so that the patient can't lie flat. The room is more like a closet. Communication with Dr. Baker was very poor. He says that he will get back with you and he doesn't.

Been treating me and my wife for several years. A-fib and HBP problems. Through all the steps including referral to Ocshner for ablation. Trust his judgement and expertise. I'm 85 and still run and play golf thanks to his good treatment. He is good

I had an appointment with Dr Baker and they canceled my appointment without calling and letting me know. This is the second time they have done this to me. It was very inconvenient for me to take off of work to make my appointment. The front desk receptionists are very rude. Dr. Baker’s clinic don’t care and I don’t recommend. I was very poorly treated and will not go back.
