Specialties

Dr. Kathryn B Baker has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • 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.

Highly Recommend Her As Well!

Dr. Baker Is extremely knowledgeable in so many medical areas but I primarily need her for my arthritis. We went through the various steps on my road to relief and repair and everything is progressing as I believe it should. She and her assistant, Tracy, always take the time to explain whats happening to me and answer all my questions fully. I cant tell you how much better I feel just having the both of them in my corner! **They are not at 300 N. Graham any more-- they moved to NW 23rd Next to Good Sam some months ago and they have their own parking lot to.

Not a Good Rheumatologist

Appears to be un-informed and un-educated outside of her interest in autoimmune. Ignored current diagnosis and suggested I have Sjgrens Syndrome. Turns out thats her interest. Should have researched first and known better than to pick a Rheumy that's a D.O. - all clinic work and not the best schools. Choose wisely people.
