I was a patient of Dr Baker while he was practicing out of Dr Germin's offices. He was always very nice & spoke to me respectfully , he was never condescending. Unfortunately his notes taken regarding my appointments did not always reflect what we spoke about during my visits & there were notes made that had nothing to do with my condition or prior medical history. There were comments about a surgery which I never had nor did we ever even discuss such a procedure. it was as if there were notes from another patient's file mixed into my file. Dr. Baker left that particular practice so, my following appointment was with Dr Germain who is by far the most condescending doctor I've ever dealt with. He did not read my complete history, misdiagnosed me and added comments to my file out of context as well as adding information I never gave. He finished my sentences, put words in my mouth then never followed up with my General Practitioner or family member as he said he would. I had one appointment with him & requested my records so I could find a new Neurologist. I would not recommend either of these doctors & if you are looking for a doctor that is polite & helpful CNS is not the place to go. The staff is not very pleasant & do not coordinate with the doctors well at all.
Complete waste of time. He provided no diagnosis and handed me pain killers for chronic migraines after only 3 minutes with me. He said I had tense neck muscles that needed relaxing and scolded me for not wanting to just use pain killers as a band aid. I wanted to know the cause and find a solution, not to drug myself into a zombie for life. I was later diagnosed with chemical sensitivities (a different, more diligent doctor) which were causing my migraines. If you want to be treated condescendingly by a guy who thinks he knows everything make sure to see Dr Baker! He has the biggest ego of any doctor I've ever seen and I've seen a lot to get my diagnosis.
Don't waste your time because Dr Baker will waste yours! He is very unhelpful in helping work through pain and in offering suggestions or in prescribing medications to modulate/alleviate symptoms and pain.He was uncommunicative with me, which probably results from a suspicion many doctor's seem to have in that their patients will not understand them or they will misinterpret them. He did not take the time to explain himself or his observations.
Dr. Baker is affiliated (can practice and admit patients) with the following hospital(s).
