Specialties

Dr. Richard W Baker has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • 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.

Very nice man and good doctor

I have been seeing Dr baker for around 10 years now. I switched to him after another Doctor wanted to put a trach in me. It was unnecessary. Dr Baker has always been very nice to me and very concerned. I have never had to wait long to see him. His staff has been super. I would and have recommended him.

It's a shame there's not a rating lower than poor. What this man put my mother through was inexcusable. Days after diagnosing her with terminal cancer, he was going to discharge her from the hospital before any provisions had been made to accommodate her at home, when asked why he was releasing her at 7 pm, he didn't recognize her name. When we decided to change physicians it took 4 phone calls requesting her records, then finally a visit to the office and I practically had threaten the office staff to release them. I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy!
