We waited over 2 hours in the waiting room for our appointment. by the time it was over and we were walking out the door it was 3 hours and we only spent about 15 to 20 minutes with the doctor. No one at the desk offered any explanation why The doctor was so late for our appointment.

Dr. Baker is always patient focused. He gives you 100% of his attention...no laptop, no scribe, no distractions. He sits right In front of your and you know he is always paying attention to you. The wait time is long sometimes, but it is worth it because this doctor is extremely good and he has the level of care (empathy) that all doctors should have. His staff is very nice but my interest is the care of the doctor. Dr. Baker is a jewel.
