Dr. Baird is an outstanding physician in whom I have the utmost confidence and trust. He has been my primary care physician for eleven plus years. He, his PA and nurses are easy to contact and communicate with before, during and after appointment visits. He has always gotten it right regarding my health issues and has taking time to answer questions and explain to assure understanding.
