Outstanding doctor, explained all to me

May 11, 2020 1:53 PM

Dr. Baker was consulting as a second opinion on my recent mastectomy. All had not gone quite as anyone had planned and I was looking for a broader understanding of the problem/solution. Dr. Baker was clear, comprehensive and extremely helpful.

May 11, 2020 1:53 PM

An outstanding experience! I finished the conversation with a much greater understanding of the issues. I hung up (this was done via zoom) and felt greatly relieved.

April 29, 2020 8:48 AM

Dr. Baker & X ALWAYS take excellent care of my dad for which I am very grateful for. Excellent team!

April 29, 2020 8:48 AM

X & X also excellent. Dr. Baker has a great team!

April 23, 2020 8:25 AM

This was a very good final check-up visit after reconstructive ear surgery due to basil cell carcinoma in October. Very pleased now the surgery turned out and doctor is the best in my opinion. Explains everything, gives information how to care for the ear and very caring.

April 20, 2020 3:45 PM

Excellent interaction even with limits of video visit.

April 20, 2020 3:45 PM

Dr. Baker showed genuine concern for my questions and provided comprehensive informed about my condition and... surgery.

March 30, 2020 11:58 AM

Dr. Baker quickly showed that he is an excellent doctor. He spent so much time with me & never seemed to be rushed. He explained everything to me was compassionate & at the follow-up told me I could ask him anything. He totally redid the dressing on my nose when I said I didn't like the white color; didn't seem to mind at all. His follow-up is done personally not with an assistant. He was recommended very highly to me by a co-worker & I see why.

March 14, 2020 8:09 PM

very nice. he explained the procedure required. it was overwhelming but that was not his fault. he spent alot of time with me and answered all my questions. Staff was fantastic and they created an appointment for me to be seen as soon as possible

February 21, 2020 7:18 AM

My all around experience was very good, in spite of the reality that hospitals create anxiety as I've never broken any bones nor stayed overnight. Thank you to Advocate for facilitating a seamless process plus procedure.

February 17, 2020 2:28 PM

February 13, 2020 11:53 AM

Doctor Todd Baker was very nice. He looked over my problem and very quickly gave me his assessment of procedure to follow. I felt he knew what to do because of the biopsy. He was the surgeon my doctor sent me to.

Dr. Todd A. Baker is a brilliant, compassionate and attentive physician as well as a surgeon. With the surgery I went through on Feb. 9, 2018, I lost hope for survival. But with the miracle of the Almighty God he assigned a gifted and trustworthy surgeon who took care of me every step of the way from painful ordeals to recovery. I would strongly recommend him to friends and family members. Many other drs. be like him for patients to maintain trust and confidence to the hosp.

July 29, 2018 7:00 PM

Amazing as Dr Baker was referred to us by Dr. X who called to see if Dr. Baker could squeeze us in that afternoon. He did and was gracious, caring and thorough. Thus the wait time was longer than 15 minutes given we were not a scheduled visit. Very thankful for this service of seeing two doctors the same afternoon, as our travel there is nearly an hour each way.

July 27, 2018 7:00 PM

June 20, 2018 7:00 PM

I am switching from my current plastic surgeon to Dr. Todd Baker upon my first visit with him. And I had no issues with my current doctor. I just liked Baker that much.

June 5, 2018 7:00 PM
