Ratings for Dr. Richard Baylor
These categories asked above do not reflect the reality that this doctor was completely arrogant to me and really offered little help...Sure, I think he knows his stuff but has a very arrogant attitude...I know now why it's so easy to get an appt. at heritage family medicine...can't imagine anyone seeking him out!!! If you like to feel belittled and stupid, he's the doctor for you... Will not see him again!!!!
Dr. Baylor cared for both of my elderly parents for many years until their deaths at age 84 and 92. He was always compassionate and knowledgeable. Because of his sound advise, we navigated through some difficult medical issues including a fractured hip, cancer, and heart disease. Some patients may think he has a bad bedside manner - on the contrary - once you get to know him you understand that he is shy but extremely caring and dedicated particularly when it comes to geriatric patients. He did not give up on my parents when other doctors said their conditions were hopeless. I trust him completely.
He comes off as rude and inattentive to a lot of people but he's been our family doctor for seven years and my family loves him. He is great with kids and has been great with referring us to specialists when needed. He is NOT a pill pusher often advising for us to try different things before resorting to medication and that is very important for our family.
Second experience with him seeing one of my kids. Waited almost an hour and he walked in, no hello, sorry, no eye contact, nothing. Went right to his laptop and barely looked at my son. He surmised my son had the flu and told me "if he didn't have a flu shot, he's screwed". After punching a few more keys on his computer, he walked out. No goodbye or anything.
