Calm, Alleviating, Attentive

Dr Baker, himself, is a thoroughgoing, calm, attentive and skilled professional; not easily put off or impatient in a search for relief from chronic pain. His procedural skills are, in our experience, superior. Each one of his office staff also mirrors this same attentive, professional attitude and engage consistently with patients as individuals--no small accomplishment. This practice is rock solid.

More about Dr. Clifford T Baker

NovaSpine Pain Institute - Your Minimally Invasive Spine, Pain and Arthritis Care Experts \"As a pain management physician, I believe the FIRST and most pivotal step to helping my patients is building trust. This is done by listening to what you have to say and examining you, rather than just reading your MRI/images. Most importantly, I believe you should always be at the center of the decisionmaking process. My passion is building a relationship each and every patient and working TOGETHER to overcome pain and achieve a better quality of life.\" After receiving his undergraduate degree in Microbiology at the University of Arizona, Dr. Baker continued to do research in microbiology at the University of Arizona and was awarded a NASA Space grant to study the effects of microgravity on the immune system. He then received his Medical Degree at the University of Arizona in 2010 and went on to Loma Linda University Medical Center for his Internship and Residency in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. During his internship in Internal Medicine, he was honored with the “Internal Medicine Resident of the Year Award” for his compassionate care and work ethic. He also served as Chief Resident during his residency and served on several committees to improve the residency program and education training for future residents. Subsequently, he completed an ACGME-accredited fellowship in Interventional Spine & Pain Management which involves extensive training in all aspects of the diagnosis and treatment of spine disorders and painful conditions. The distinction of being an ACGME Board-Certified Pain Management physician is important for patients to understand. There are many practicing physicians in pain management who are not Board-Certified and thus have not gone through the necessary training and rigorous standards for testing that are required by the ACGME Board. Our physicians at the NovaSpine Pain Institute are all ACGME-Board Certified in good standing.
