    • Absolutely the BEST OF BEST!

3 Prev Neuro 3 yr treatment w/o results. 12 was post op spinal reconstruction surgery, 90% pain reduction, back in gym, pool and walking 1/2 mi. Greatest quality, is genuine concern, put completely at ease, and 100% delivery on everything exactly as he stated. Gave my life back will always be indebted! Tremendous staff, Susan Lowe could not been more helpful.

    • Fabulous! Because of the pandemic, I had a telephone consultation. Dr. Baker couldn't have been a better listener and got the wheels rolling in an amazing amount of time, towards, answers for my issue. I have full confidence in this man and couldn't have been more impressed with his education, knowledge and attentiveness. I am lucky to have found him and will keep him as my Neurosurgeon as long as he is in practice!

    • I was referred to Dr. Baker through my PCP for lower back pain problem. I always check the reviews first. I was very surprised with the results. This review is based on my 3 visits so far. I found his front staff to be very pleasant, helpful and friendly. I thought his surgery coordinator was alittle stand-offish, though I know she's busy. Dr. Baker was friendly and pleasant, but my PCP ordered the wrong area of my spine scanned, so the first visit was a bust! He rescheduled me for a lumbar MRI @ the Meducal Arts Ctr & it was $500 cheaper than the wrong scan @ the hospital...location makes a huge difference! The 2nd visit he was friendly & pleasant. Took my CD loaded and showed me the would be needed soon! He told me what he was going to do, though in detail enough and told me to meet with his girls and they would arrange everything. They did, but due to a bad cough & too high A1C I had to cancel my surgery, now slated for the Spring 2020. I would recommend.

    • Dr Baker performed a miracle on my neck in 2007- a fusion. Pain free in neck and arm ever since.
  • MMiller in FL, FL – Feb 11, 2019 - healthgrades
    • Dr. Baker was chosen for me by the ER referring physician, following a seizure that uncovered a brain tumor metastasized from lung cancer. He was very short and curt with me (and my wife who drove me to the appointment) as he was anxious to go on vacation. Scheduling with his office is very difficult and frustrating. I tried to schedule and appointment for a separate spine issue, but was refused an appointment.

    • Office staff prevent you from seeing the Dr when you have a problem.

    • Dr. Baker was nothing short of amazing when h meet my mother to remove bilateral hematomas under emergency circumstances. I would highly recommend him.
  • James and Ruth Bruce – Jul 04, 2018 - healthgrades
    • We felt very comfortable in Dr Baker's care. His surgical skills are excellent; his bedside manner very pleasant.

"I felt I made a friend" said Jim.

We would recommend him very highly. Thank you so much Dr Baker and staff!

    • My wife was diagnosed with a herniated disc about a year ago. The first doctor we saw made the condition seem very difficult to treat, suggesting fusion. We got a second opinion because that seemed desperate & scary. Dr Baker said he would sue any doctor that would suggestion fusion for her condition. He made it sound very easy to treat and was sure it'd work. 1 year later post op and shes 100% pain free. Hes a skilled doctor and it might come across as arrogance but hes just confident. See him.
  • John Rombough in Sanford, FL – Jan 24, 2018 - healthgrades
    • Dr. Baker performed a spinal procedure on L3-4 on January 10, 2018 at Florida Hospital Orlando. I was experiencing severe right leg pain. I am recovering but the pain is gone and I am looking forward to a full recovery. My experience with Dr. Baker and his staff, before and after the procedure, has been professional and caring.

    • He is a pompous jerk who doesn't listen. His office is a mess--hard to get ahold of anyone. go to someone else!!!!!

    • I went to Baker with a severely herniated cervical disk, seeking a second opinion on the advice of my GP. An orthopedic surgeon earlier recommended fusion, which I was worried about. Dr. Baker recommended artificial disk replacement instead. His rationale was sound. The surgery went very well. I was back to work in 1 week. Staff in hospital told me he's one of the best. He also has a good sense of humor. 1 year later - zero pain and am back to running. Amazing really.
  • carmen in ALTAMONTE SPRINGS – Nov 18, 2017 - healthgrades
    • Staff so rude surgery coordinator has no manners very unprofessional with a very disgusting attitude no x rays after surgery no appointment after my post op I'm very worried about my outcome.
  • On behalf of my husband in Mount Dora, FL – Sep 22, 2017 - healthgrades
    • Dr. Baker identified the location of my husband's pain on a CT scan that the radiologist who read the disc did not identify. The vertebroplasty went very well and my husband's pain has been substantially reduced. I would trust him with my life.. The help we got from Susan with the quick scheduling was superb.
  • Deltona, FL – Sep 04, 2017 - healthgrades
    • I can say I survived the surgery. He did not fully explain the surgery or what issues I would have after the surgery I have had plenty. The morning after the surgery he came into my hospital room and yelled at me I was going home no matter what no exam or anything. Less than 24 hours later after a visit to the ER The ambulance took me back to the same hospital, in which I spent 4 days. My 6 weeks follow up I told him about my pain no solution from him. I would never recommend him or his office.
  • Holly in Orlando, FL – Jul 13, 2017 - healthgrades
    • I think Dr. Baker did a wonderful job on my anterior disk replacement 6 weeks ago. I had 3 replaced due to extreme arm pain from a major nerve being pinched. The incision is in the front of my neck and you can barely see it so I am very happy about that. I no longer have arm pain so I feel the surgery was a success. I only have 2 complaints. I kept asking Dr. Baker and his staff what to expect post-op and I was only given vague answers. His scheduler rarely returns calls. Very aggravating
  • T. in Orlando, FL – May 08, 2017 - healthgrades
    • I wish i could have let the dr know how melissa in front is handling the patients!! I have a valid referral from my insurance,valid insurance, valid id and my dr sent mri over 3x melissa will NOT make appt for me wants me to sit and wait. I have been here 75 minutes still not able to get appt!!!very strange would live to give dr. Baker a try
  • P Bailey in Orlando, FL – Apr 04, 2017 - healthgrades
    • I have never met a more wishy-washy surgeon. First he tells me that epidural would not help my neck & suggest that he fuse 4 thru 7. The day before surgery he cancels & sends me for epidural. After 3 years later today he tells me it's not that bad. EXCUSE ME & would not recommend surgery without 6 wks of physical therapy. REALLY!
  • Paul in Orlando, FL – Mar 02, 2017 - healthgrades
    • Dr. Baker's bedside manner is terrible and is always in a hurry to get out of the exam/consult room. A big hurry.

My microdiskectomy actually made my condition worsen and I didn't feel like this doctor or his staff really cared. I was offered muscle relaxers and told that should be it. No support.

Last, I relocated and asked for my surgery notes and was told I'd have to pay for them up front. I would never do the surgery if I knew then what I know now. I will not see this physician again
