Specialties

Dr. Mark S Baker has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. Baker is a good physician who takes the time to explain issues, is open to discussion, and we never feel rushed or hurried as if he wants to leave for another patient. His diagnosis each time is usually very accurate and his experience with Children is a tremendous asset.

I have been with Dr Baker for almost 6 years...

our baby was a very early preemie. He had several medical issues when he was discharged from the Hershey med center but we had had 6 weeks to prepare ourselves for caring for him on our own. I was so concerned about his follow-up care though. I hadn't planned on needing specialists when I was pregnant so in was left to having to find one rather quickly. We were scheduled our first appointment with dr, baker and I figured if we didn't connect with him we would just make another appointment with someone else. Needless to say, we connected with Dr.Baker and have never looked for another doctor. He since relocated to Nyes Rd which is a bit of a drive for us but I would never consider changing pediatricians. It is worth the drive and his amazing connection to small children has made our appointments a breeze. Our little boy is healthy and had no health problems. Our early intervention paid off and with amazing Dr.'s like Dr. Baker is attribute much of his successes to their help.
