7 Patient Reviews for Dr. Baker

"Extraordinary. Dr. Baker and his team are cordial, professional, and remarkably skilled. The Keck Hospital could teach Disneyland about customer service.

For open heart surgery, it was a great experience. My valve repair went smoothly, and I was able to start back at work about 10 days later. Yesterday, two weeks after the surgery, I walked 6.5 miles. I am extremely pleased with Dr. Baker, his team, the hospital, and certainly with the results."

"I cannot thank Dr. Baker enough. The moment I met Dr. Baker I knew I was in great hands of a caring and compassionate surgeon. Dr. Baker and his staff made me and my husband feel like we were part of a family. Dr. Baker was never in a hurry when we met with him and was very patient and answered all our questions and concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Baker is the best surgeon in the US and we will always contact him if we are in need of a surgeon."
