One Star

VERY disappointed and uneasy about being in his care. He looked at a single complaint I had for a minute from a distance, diagnosed it as something non-pregnancy related that he's not very familiar with and then blew off or fully ignored everything that made that diagnosis very inconsistent/ unlikely and everything else I said about any other symptom I was having (including the biggie: significantly decreased fetal movements). He brushed everything off and didn't give me the opportunity to ask any general questions I had. Very frustrating experience with this doctor. I tend to trust doctors' opinions but this left me feeling VERY uncomfortable and concerned. I have requested to never have him as my doctor again, and very fortunately, the other doctors in the practice are all wonderful and attentive!

One Star

This Dr is horrible, spent almost no time with me, didn't listen to anything I had to say despite me being a high risk pregnancy. Also showing up unknowingly to their albany office, I was treated to the sight of multiple drug deals going on right outside as I tried to find safe parking, scared to even take my 4 year old out of the car! After such an awful experience, I'd go ANYWHERE ELSE rather than have this butcher deliver my baby. If I could give 0 stars I would.

I haven't seen Dr Baker but he sounds wonderful. My problem is the practice. They have one receptionist to make appointments for 5 doctors. She never answers the phone but calls you back hours later. When you do get to speak with her she is extremely rude and impatient. A terrible system for trying to make appointments at a busy practice. Last time I called for my yearly check up, I couldn't get an appointment at a time I needed 3 MONTHS into the future.

Best There Wver Was

Dr Baker has delivered all of my children. He listens to you, understands you and makes you feel like your the only patient he has. He's very understanding. I would recommend him to the world if I could.

My preference in doctors has always been women especially for my pregnancies until I met Dr. Kenneth Baker. He has a friendly deposition and beyond question, has the best bedside manner of any doctor I've met. He listens AND pays attention to your concerns and has an air of trust that puts you immediately at ease. Not only is Dr. Baker well-liked by his patients, he is also adored by the staff.
