Office is always packed waited over 4 hours to have a simple note drafted, Doctor sees clients for 5 minutes and rushes them out. He will milk your insurance! I went to get a letter for work and he charged myinsurance company for false procedures and complaints. All he did was take my weight and height and looked at my old chart to give me clearance. He charged the insurance company as heart complaints. Worst office will be changing my PCP. Staff is a ton of people who have nurse aid certificates and are very unprofessional and under trained. They are mainly hired from ABC training on Fordham Rd. Only positive is that he has a lapcorp attached to his office for blood work/ drug testing and the area is one of the best areas in the Bronx. The office and equipment is outdated looks like its all from the 1990s. Beware he will run a ton of test on you just so he an charge your insurance

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’treally 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 introducedherself, 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 apsychiatrist 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 hardto 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 mentionmy 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 themfor 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 tellingme 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. Ijust 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 likethey 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.

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. Theco-workers were polite except for a rude one that answers the phone in the front desk. Overall, the appointment went well!

Horrible experience! The entire operation was very unprofessional. The rooms were dirty, actual garbage on the floor. I was seen early in the day and yet all the garbage cans were already filled, clear indicator the garbage was not removed thenight prior. No paper towels in the bathroom. It was a long wait time to see the doctor and when I was seen he rushed through everything, spent maybe 5 minutes with the actual doctor. In addition he asked me more questions about where I lived and worked then my actual health. After the blood work I was sitting in the room without any instruction of what was going to happen next. When 15 minutes went by and I finally ask the lady that was working there what was going to happen next she rudely turned to me and responded "wait I'm working." After she was done doing whatever she was doing on the computer she sat me in another in a room, about 30 minutes went by before someone happen to notice I was there. Overall Bad horrible experience other then one of the front desk girls being polite there nothing good I can say about this doctors office. Would not return even if the consultation was free!

Terrible experience, I've never seem a doctor so careless. He cared more about what type of insurance I had than my name or what was wrong with me. Got there at 12:30pm, didn't leave until 3:30pm and the doctor consultation only took 5minutes. Stay away from this place !!!

Dr. Baker is very friendly and has a wonderful bedside manner. He was very helpful and addressed all of my concerns. His staff was very friendly, especially Marina, the nurse who did blood work. My only issue was the wait, butit was well worth it given the demeanor, professionalism, and care from Dr. Baker and his amazing staff.
