Ratings for Dr. Joseph W. Baker
I have found him to be very caring. As a nurse, I am very difficult to please when it comes to doctors. I have never been turned down for requests re.my tx . He doesn't jump the gun and order medication for every little ill as my last dr. and when I first went to him, he listened to my concerns re some of my med. Talked to me about how to come off it and checked me monthly for 3 months to ensure there were no issues.
I've been going to Dr. Baker for about 3 1/2 years and have been very happy. He listens to me, orders the necessary tests, and his office calls to follow up. I think he's rather busy, my first checkup took a couple months to schedule, but his staff's been willing to fit me in when necessary. I can't evaluate his medical knowledge, but he seems to ask the right questions. I've recommended him to others.
I was referred the Dr.Baker by Dr.Doug Lawrence. What an AWFUL mistake! The absolute WORST personality - whatever happened to 'bedside manners'? I only saw him once and thank God I only need to go for refills every 6 months. Talk about a total waste of my time and $40. And, since going there - I've talked to a few others who feel the same way (wish I'd heard from them before I had to change PCP's).
