Dr. Baker could not be better! He was very clear in explaining the results of my test. I take a list, and he answered all my questions thoroughly. He is engaged in our conversation and does not appear in a hurry to leave the room. I appreciate so much having him for my cardiologist! I left there informed and reassured.
