Specialties

Dr. Susan S Baker has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • 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.

Mrs.

I was impressed with her experience. She knew a lot about Crohns disease. She helped my son a lot. Recently I could enroll in a NIH study where I could get free medication, payment for my son and all I had to do was fill out a questionnaire.

Excellent

I had a great experience with Dr. Susan Baker. She is very intelligent, and knew what was wrong with my kid right away! I used to see the doctors in Rochester but I am very glad I switched. When we did the tests Dr Baker asked for, she sat down with us, explained every thing and gave us a copy of all the test results. Dr Baker is very knowledgable and experienced and has excellent bed side manners.

Dr. Baker knows her stuff but is not able to communicate with all types of people. If you ask questions because you genuinely care she takes that as a threat or attack on herself and becomes aggressive as well as very defensive. I do not see much if any humility in her at all. Again she knows her stuff but she did not gel well with our family in our situation. Her residents, and assistants were wonderful.
