The lady who does bloodworks named Marina is absolutely RUDE. Horrible bedside manner and should not be allowed to work with patients. I was afraid she was going to hit me. She told me to “grow up” and that I wasn’t really afraid of needles. Also that I was delaying her work. She told the intern working there to stop talking and go away because she is of no help when the intern literally came in asking what she needed help with...what? Never returning because of that lady, she was totally out of control, disrespectful, and should be fired.

Dr. Baker was pleasant and efficient. However his staff could use some refinements. The office seems a bit hectic and is not welcoming. A nurse, I assume she was a nurse, came in to check my blood pressure. She never introduced herself, hooked me up to the machine and proceeded to sit down until it was done. Maybe I'm being nitpicky but it felt unprofessional. I also had to call to remind them forward my medication to my pharmacy.

Where do I begin? #1 do not go to this doctor if you have any and I mean ANY issue regarding depression. He will do nothing but run your insurance for every test known to man then refer you to a psychiatrist repeatedly that doesn't take your insurance! I'm suicidal. I have lost my mother my father and am on the way to the ER because this joke of a Dr. doesn't prescribe any medication for anxiety or depression. This was a 4 hour long unnecessary hell that has honestly made me want to abandon treatment and take my life. I'm tired of trying. Thank you Dr. Baker!!!!!!

Dr. Baker was good. He made me feel comfortable and welcomed. His secretaries and the assistants however are horrible. They couldnt draw out blood and pinched me 5 times. I cried. The secretary at the front is very rude and hard to understand. Although I liked him as a doctor, i cannot attend to an office where respect is rare. I also called to get an EKG that they disnt have time to do (since it took the nurse 1hr to draw my blood). They said to come over on a day the doctor was not even there and i had taken that day off. In my opinion Dr. Baker should get his staff checked. I am highly disappointed.

The doctor was really nice and professional, however his staff were highly disoriented and seemed said they were hiding from the patients... I had an appt at 8:30 am and didn't get seen until like 10 or 10:30am... not to mention my prescription was never sent to the pharmacy although the front receptionist said she would send it... it's been over a week and still no prescription

Dr was great. His reception staff needs to be more on point with the patients. They dont ask what your there for and ask you to sign in and don't give you a pen and get mad when you ask them for one. They talk to much at the desk and have the patients standing there. They ask you questions about who you are and things to that matter when they have yourinformation on your file right in front of their face.

Waited almost 2 hours and then they called me in for a sonogram and not my well visit appt with my doctor. If the receptionist would've ask me what i was there for instead of throwing me a pen and telling me to sign the clipboard.. And mayne checked to see my name she would have seen that i was there for a doctors visit not a sonogram

This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. I had an 8:30 am appointment and some of the doctors and the receptionist showed up at almost 9:30. I came in with a simple request for my college. I just needed a form signed by a doctor showing i had some vaccines that most children receive young. I brought in my chart showing these vaccines as well. The Doctor and his Staff charge me a full doctors visit and my deductible was very high for some reason but thats not the issue. the Doctor performed zero work and photo copied the records I brought and signed his name to see attached. This process took over two hours and I left the office after 10:30. I do not have an issue of paying if there was a service performed but I signature should not constitute as medical visit especially since I was a former patient. I will not come back to this place ever and I would like to see what he charge the insurance honestly and see if the charges add up to the service. Unless I have missed something and signatures count as doctors visits when you bring the information needed. I will not just stop here either contacting the insurance to see if charges equal the cost i was charged and to make sure this was not some type of fraud.

They had no idea about my documents from ZocDoc and when I mentioned that I filled everything out online, they looked at me like I had 2 heads. I had 8:30am appointment but the staff doesn't arrive until 9am. Seems like they are very overbooked and add in the fact that they accept walk-ins with no appointment necessary makes me think long waits are a normal thing. Most of the staff was ok, the younger girls were much better than the old ladies, and the doctor seemed ok. Once I saw him I was in and out in a minute or 2.

The Recepitioncist are lost. The doctor didn't even provide me with the service requested through Zocdoc instead referred me to some else (which I could have seen my self with out a referral) so upset that I had to waste money on this visit.

Only reason I had wait more then 30 minutes to see the Dr. was because I was a new patient and had to do paperwork. So it was expected. The Doctor was really cool and easy to talk to. Very understanding. The girls behind the desk are very nice and helpful. I'd definitely go back and see Dr. Baker.

My appointment was at 12:30pm. The waiting time was longer than an hour. My reason for making that appointment were addressed really quickly and the professional bedside was clean. The Dr. will be definitely recommended to other people. The co-workers were polite except for a rude one that answers the phone in the front desk. Overall, the appointment went well!
