Ratings for Dr. Jeff B. Baker
First, I waited an hour to see him. He immediately told us that this needed to be very short, immediately stressing me out because I actually had a lot of things I wanted to ask about so I started mentally narrowing my list down to the most important concerns. Dr Baker was so cold and distant to me to the point he did not make eye contact with me once. He only would look at and speak to my husband. He looked my husband in the eye and asked "is this your first pregnancy?" I answered, he didn't even acknowledge me and asked my husband some more questions about my pregnancy. I asked about something I had tested positive for, he explained it to my husband. I told him I was concerned I had a UTI, he told my husband I'm fine, didn't check my urine. At the end of the appointment he told me not to come in for two more months. I didn't even tell him about the list of symptoms I had a week ago I was concerned about because he then left abruptly. Then the ultrasound tech pushed on me so hard that I had bruises on my abdomen. The receptionist was shockingly unprofessional, the nurses acted like any questions were annoying. Overall horrible experience. Go anywhere else.
Dr. Baker saved my life, and the life of my child. I was extremely high risk with a condition that was medically improbable. Dr. Baker spent long hours on the phone with Dr's in different states trying to figure out the best course of action. My baby should have been born at 24 weeks. Because of his dedication I was able to hold on to her until 34. He got me an appointment to see a specialist in 2 days when the actual wait was months. 10 days after I had my daughter I hemorrhaged in a different town. Dr. Baker coordinated with those doctors and was able to preform the surgery himself. He is not a cold and distant man. He will do anything to help his patience.
I would highly recommend him, he was so good and really listened. He was also so nice to my kids when they came with me. I would definitely go to him for my next pregnancy. With my last baby he stayed and delivered him and he wasn't even on call!
He was great. We never saw any of those things indicated in the negative comments. He was great with my 2 year old, and very interested in our concerns and making us feel comfortable and safe. He was delivered our baby, and was fantastic. I would totally recommend him.
Dr. Jeff Baker may seem nice at some appointments, but BEWARE. If you really get to spend much time with him, you might meet the real Jeff Baker. I went to Rosemark to see Dr. Merill. But occasionally saw Dr Baker. One time I fell on the ice and was worried about my baby. His nurse said if I wanted to I should come in, I over heard him say NO she DOES NOT need to. I went in anyway and he made me wait over 1 hour, then came in and wouldn't look at me or touch me just said, "everything is fine, nothing ever happens when people fall down, go into ultrasound and they will check the placenta." IT was very cold and abrupt. He also delivered my baby. It was Saturday, he had been there since 5 or 6 am, I started pushing at 7 pm. He was very COLD and impersonal, told me at the beginning "lets use the vacuum to make this 5 minutes instead of a half hour" the entire 1 & 1/2 hr of pushing he looked PISSED that he had to be there. When the head came out he just ripped the baby out with no care. :(
Dr. Baker is one of the best Doctor's. He really cares about each Patient and listens to all their concerns. He also only does a C-Section if completely neccesary, while most doctors will just do it to get it over with. He respects the patient and wants their delivery to be special. He really connects with his patients and is excellent. All over town people know of Dr. Baker , he is a favorite for great reason!
First child. Dr. Baker came into room (which was cold) and right away, pulled out the stethoscope. He didn't try to interact with my child (1.5 years old) to make him feel comfortable. He was also very mean, when I tried to explain some concerns, he wouldn't listen. I finally left and took my son to another Dr.
