- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

The experience I had with Dr. Baier was so unpleasant that I decided to take this precious time of mine to write a review about it. Hopefully you who are reading this review would not be deceived by all the other "five-star" reviews on her. I have a full insurance coverage, but still find Dr Baier's office being un-affordable. I went to see her twice total before I finally find myself a new doctor. First time, I saw her as a new patient for about 10 minutes, with a quick ward freeze (normally cost $10 in my previous physician's office). She charged my insurance $525, for which I owe $115. The second time, I had a cough after a flu. She prescribed me an inhaler and a nasal spray that cost $150, while there are so many other OTC options that are 1/5 or less of the price. Besides, I am not impressed with her bedside manner. In you due diligence looking for a general care provider, there are other options.
Pros: Dr. Baier is great. She is kind, listens, communicates well, has always provided accurate diagnoses and excellent referrals when needed. Best Dr. I have ever had and I have gone to her for 15 plus years. Negatives: New staff from Dignity at the front desk and office supervisor are a total nightmare. None of them belong working in customer service positions, least of all at a medical office working with people who don't feel well. Gave misinformation. Rude. Charged $103 extra dollars 'per Dignity policy' because I was a 'new' patient; I have been a patient of Dr. Baier's for 15 years. I am not sure that is even legal. Doesn't say much about Dignity and how they operate if these are the kind of people they hired to replace the excellent front desk staff that worked there previously. Pharmacy had to call an antibiotic change in to the office. They called in the morning and when they asked me to follow up at 2pm the front desk response was that the Dr. wasn't in. They just let it sit all day with no communication to the pharmacy.
