Still wouldn't see him if he is the only doctor

I saw Dr. Baker with my wife and it was the worst mistake I ever made. I suffered a traumatic injury over 10 years ago that has left me with a severe disability, nerve damage and chronic pain that has spread through various parts of my body. I came to him to get a 2nd opinion and right away he was talking about surgery. He wanted me to see a doctor, to conduct a test, that I had previously seen and didn't feel comfortable going back to. I asked if I can see someone else for this test. At no time did he try to understand why I felt this way. Instead, I was told it doesn't matter what I want and I am not taking the injury serious and that I don't care to resolve it. I have had 8 surgeries, 4 years of physical therapy, 15 to 20 shots in the front of my neck, chronic pain in my limbs and numerous medications that have taken a toll on my body. Explain how this is not taking the issue seriously. I think it should be said that Dr. Chris Baker doesn't take the patient seriously and listens to what they are saying. For him to question and belittle me says a lot about the quality of the doctor and person he is. Avoid him at all cost.

My husband has been struggling with lower back pain for 2.5 years in the military and they did every possible thing they could (aside from surgery) before medically retiring him. With that being said, Being a veteran dealing with the VA is a nightmare and living with this pain for this long is unacceptable. So we were referred to Dr. Baker and seeing his MRI and his chart notes from the DOD Dr's he agreed he is a candidate for surgery. Which is a relief to our family because being on pain killers for this long is not good on his body not to mention other doctors continued to dismiss my husband case because they failed to look at the notes and see he has already tired PT, Chiropractic, Injections, Acupuncture, Burning of the Nerves to no avail. It is nice to see a Dr. out there who are willing to help people who truly need it. I will be posting an additional review after the surgery

They don't call them surgeon for nothing

I was referred to Dr. Baker and saw him today for multiple herniated disc in my back. The PA spent maybe 5 mins with be checking reflexes and such. The doctor came in and said I need a three level fussion in my lower back. He took me to another room to look at my MRI. He then asked me to go back to the original room I was in and he would be right in. Well he never came back. A MA came and said "all done" I will take you to check out. I told her I have a lot of questions and would like to speak to the doctor. I was told they could answer any questions at checkout. I replied that I wanted to ask about the surgery because it is a major procedure and that I wanted to speak with the Dr. Or the PA. I was told they were already with other patients. This place is a cutting factory. I will not debate that I need surgery, but I expect that you will spend some time with me and answer my questions. No discussion of other options, therapy, pain managment, or less severe surgery. Also, when my primary care doctor referred me I was told Dr. Bakers office would call within a week to schedule an appointment. After almost two weeks passed I called and they said they did not get a copy of my insurance card. Ok, maybe you did, maybe you didn't (my primary care says they sent it, but will give benifit of the doubt), but maybe, just maybe you might let someone know.... If I hadn't called I would still be waiting for an appointment Needless to say, I will find someone else.
