July 14, 2020 9:02 AM

This doctor is very professional, caring and concerned about the health of his patients.

July 13, 2020 5:39 PM

Dr. Baker is a tremendous physician!! He always makes me feel comfortable and takes care of all of my needs. I think he is the best Internist I have ever had!!!!

July 13, 2020 5:39 PM

I always feel great after leaving Dr. Bakers office. The entire team is very responsive, respectful, and caring. My brother also sees Dr. Baker, and he feels the same way!!! I would and have recommended him to family and friends!!!

July 13, 2020 1:55 PM

Dr Baker is always professional and thorough, along with having a very easy personality.

June 29, 2020 2:54 PM

Since I see so many specialist it seems that the doctor is letting others handle other health concerns and doesn't care to be involved

June 19, 2020 10:13 AM

My experience has always been great.

June 19, 2020 10:13 AM

I have always received the best of care from Dr. Baker office his nurses are all very attentive and caring.

June 10, 2020 8:08 AM

This was a pre-surgery visit and just after offices opened after COVID - the visit was efficient & quick relatively as I have no health problems. Dr. Baker spent as much time w/me as I needed.

June 10, 2020 8:08 AM

Dr. Baker is great. This is only my 2nd visit w/him as my previous internist retired. He needs to access my health records from Dr. X. Dr. Baker has my records for my visits w/him.

May 19, 2020 10:07 PM

I was able to get a tele visit the same day that I contacted the office to discuss concerns about COVID-19 symptoms.

May 19, 2020 10:07 PM

Dr. Baker was extremely helpful, but I was extremely disappointed in the Advocate system for being able to provide COVID-19 testing since I had many symptoms and am also a health-care worker.

May 18, 2020 1:35 PM

very enjoyable, appreciated his time

May 11, 2020 7:15 PM

Dr. Baker is the best physician which is why my family and I have been with him for 20 years or more

May 11, 2020 8:29 AM

Spoke with Dr. Baker over the phone. Staff scheduled time that Dr. Baker would call. Phone visit worked well.

May 11, 2020 8:29 AM

Sometimes when trying to reach Dr. Baker calls are not returned or followed up by staff. Staff needs to follow through.

May 4, 2020 11:15 AM

This was my first visit with Dr. Baker and it was a very nice visit. I am very pleased to have him as my doctor.

April 17, 2020 12:00 AM

I wish that all doctors & offices would work as Dr. H Baker & his team.

April 10, 2020 5:01 PM

I was new to this doctor but due to the pandemic the office staff was going to push out my appointment for a couple of months. But when I told them that I was needing some of my prescriptions filled and could not wait they got me in right away to see the doctor.

April 10, 2020 5:01 PM

I was very pleased with our discussions and his treatment. I was very relieved that I had my meds to tide me over through this crazy pandemic.
