I wasn’t a fan of Dr. Baber. I went To her once and I wasn’t a fan of her personality or her mannerisms. I came to her seeking birth control and future pregnancy advice and all she could tell me wasthat I needed to restrict my diet to no dairy and no gluten in order to have a successful pregnancy. Mind you I’m not lactose intolerant or have celiac disease. I am completely open for suggestions but the way that she presented them was not desired at that time.

Dr Baber is the doctor I have been looking for my whole life. I’ve had quite a rough time finding a primary care Doctor Who would listen and help me in the best way possible, and I found it in thisdoctor. She sat with me for about an hour and explained in detail everything that I needed to know and my next steps, she also put all of her time and energy into making sure that I understood what was going on .shes so brilliant.

I read several reviews of this doctor before deciding to visit her office. Her staff was pleasant and professional. Another reviewer mentioned a nurse was present the entire visit. This is true! I was not asked if I was uncomfortable withthe nurse being present, but I found the doctor very professional and she took the time to address my medical concern. The doctor is from Mexico and explained several reason she does not have mail staff working for her and after hearing the reasons . I can understand. I would recommend this doctor to any female or male looking for a good family medicine doctor.

Dr. Laura Baber is great. Very polite and professional. The wait time was a bit much. Had to fill out close to 13 pages then when brought into the room was re asked every question I just answered on the pastpapers. I was very annoyed having to answer the same questions just so the technician can enter it in the computer.

Dr. Baber is just fantastic! I could tell right away that she cares about her patients because she try to get to know you and will most definitely put a smile on your face with her quirky personality! She does agreat job at giving you a lot of knowledge about your health but also explaining in a way that makes sense for you and your lifestyle. Going to the doctor isn't an annoying burden because I very much enjoy seeing Dr. Baber whether it be for an annual exam or a visit because I am sick. I would (and have) recommend her to all of my family and friends! Keep doing you, Dr. Baber! The world needs more doc's like you!

The second time seeing her, I wasn't so happy to see her. She had an intern with her and treated me like a specimen than a person. Meeting her the first time, she was stern, yet helpful. Now, she just cameoff as standoffish and unconcerned. Besides the fact that you can access her in many odd days of the year, she's not my first choice.

I've been going to Dr. Baber for almost 2 years now. The first time I saw her, she was nice and easy going. The 2nd and last time I saw her, things got interesting to say the least. Here's how itwent; I walked in, nurse did all her normal stuff. I wait about 10 minutes and Dr. Baber walks in. She looks me up and down and says how's things? I reply "good". How's work? "good, I just started 2nd shift" Looks at me with a very serious look and says "You need to get back to 1st shift as soon as you can, off-shifts cause cancer". I did my research after this appointment, there was one study done in 2011 that stated as a THEORY, that breast cancer was found to be more common in women on off-shifts. That was the first 15 minutes of this appointment, now mind you I only came in for a checkup and to get my prescription refilled. The next 15 minutes was her asking me if I was exercising. I said, "yeah, I go to the gym about 4x a week and run about 40 minutes every day". She asked, how many miles is that? I replied "About 4, little more or less". She looks at me again with that serious look and says, "that is pathetic for someone that is 24, I could run a 10 minute mile easily". I just looked at her and thought what is going on? Now mind you this lady is about 4'8" and probably around 230lbs and I'm about 5'9" at 170lbs, needlessly to say I highly doubt she could outrun me. The last 15 minutes consisted of her asking me all of this information about vaccinations and previous medical examinations, I gave her the information she needed and asked why they need this now after 1.25 years? She replied, "we get graded by the state board on how complete our patients files are, so for me to get a good score, I need all of your information on file and for you to get blood work". OK, that's fine, sounds standard. 2 weeks later I get 2 prescriptions in the mail for shots that I don't even need.

Dr. Baber is always professional and nice to work with. My only complaint would be the nurse who stays in the room. I did not like that. I want privacy with my doctor, made me very uncomfortable. Doctor said their isalways a nurse present in the room. Well, all the other times I seen the doctor it was only her and me. That's the only negative.

I had seen Dr Baber before and thought-FINALLY, I found a Dr who cares. Then my insurance changed and she was not on it. Now my insurance changed again and she is on it. I couldn't wait to see her soshe can help me with my illness. She cares and she is trying to find out what is the best treatment for me. I feel like I finally have hope that if not cured, I will feel better. Thank you Dr. Baber for being so caring and your staff also.

I think she's the doctor I've been searching for. very polite great bedside manner very professional and she always gives me more information than I ask for and I find that very helpful. Dr Baber told time out of her busyschedule to call me and see how I was doing after a visit I had with her and i think that was very thoughtful. I've only had two doctors in my lifetime I've only known Dr. Baber for a short but I think she's the greatest. I'm even scheduling my daughter an appointment to see her.
