Learn about Melissa Baker

Care Philosophy

I believe in this fast paced and ever changing field of medicine, the patient has gotten lost.  The patient's voice to ask questions, seek more information about their illness and treatment plan have been forgotten.  I want to create an environment in which my patients get to know me so well that we communicate as a team to gather knowledge and discuss their desires and wishes for their health.  If at all possible, you will hear from me about abnormal lab values and what my suggestions for the corrections should be.  I want you to hear a real person when you call my office and be able to communicate your needs to someone who understands and will appropriate your need to the right person if they are not able to help you.  I encourage and want you to ask questions and together I want to keep you as healthy and active and informed as can we can!!!  "Changing the culture of healthcare one patient at a time."

Dr. Baker is very sincere and caring. She takes her time listening and making sure she understands what is going on. She is very thorough with with you and your problems. Always making sure everything is current and where you need to be. She always returns your calls, sends in your prescriptions and makes all your appointments for places she refers you to. I've been with her over a year and would recommend her to anyone.

This is the most REAL Dr I have seen in years!!! She took an incredible amount of time with my father. Answered every question we had and helped us plan for future situations.I truly cannot say enough good things about this Dr. She is professional and knowledgeable and truly concerned about what happened to our father. I didn't know that Dr's like her still existed!!!
Thank you for the kind words Lori. Melissa believes that one of the crutial aspects of patient care is patient understanding. She has a true love for each patient that steps through the door and that really does show when she is in the room with them!
