Specialties

Dr. David L Baker Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

One Star

This Doctor was so unforgetably rude to my mother. He made her cry. He didn't even say hello or introduce himself when he entered the examination room. He may be a very intelligent competant doctor, but he made my mother feel like an idiot.If you can't be civil towards your patients, get out of the profession.

excellent doctor

I have had personal as well as family care from Dr. Baker. My daugter had a Pseudo-tumor(swollen optic nerve) and Dr. Baker's consistent scheduled appointments and treatment helped her through a year and later all the way through her 1st pregancy and after; the pseudo-tumor is now completely reduced. My father-in-law had surgery twice under Dr. Baker and received great care...Bob, in Dr. Baker's office/surgery center, even came out and sat and talked with my mother-in-law during the surgery time...great staff!

very intellegent and caring doctor

I have been to several doctors to try to find out how to treat an chronic infection in my eye. The doctors I went to kept prescribing medication that was not working and I ended up over medicating my condition. Dr. Baker was able to diagnose it in a timely manner and I was finally able to recover. Thanks to Dr. Baker I am able to see clearly with no infection!
