Dr. Cindy Baker has the following 4 specialties
- Interventional Cardiology
An interventional cardiologist has the same training as a cardiologist and they're well-versed in all types of heart disease and how to diagnose heart problems. The difference is that interventional cardiologists have additional expertise and training on specific interventional treatments for heart disease, such as angioplasties and stents. These methods use catheterization, which reduces recovery time as well as scarring after surgery.
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Dr. Baker is wonderful. She takes time to listen to me which I find very important. Due to my many illnesses I am not a typical or average patient. I have many other health issues which have to be taken into consideration regarding treatment etc... Dr. Baker is very professional and caring. I have seen other Cardiologist in Columbus Ohio who did not take the time to understand how my other illnesses affect my overall care. She referred me to one of the best electrophysiologists in the state of Ohio when I needed my ablation. She is the best in my opinion. An excellent physician is worth any wait. I will be moving soon out of state and I will greatly miss this doctor for I have great trust in her and her decisions regarding treatment. I can only pray I find a cardiologist in Florida that comes close to matching her skills, knowledge base and caring manner. Thank you Cindy Baker for the awesome care you have provided for me to date.
