Dr. Baker is one of my favorite people. He makes sure we understand what is happening and why.

My wife and I like dr. Baker very much--however, i am not happy that i have to dive into Nashville for test he ordered. wish we could go to Vandy Heart at Murfreesboro--much closer for us. my wife has to drive as i have not been able to drive for over 2 years and traffic around hospital scares us
