I feel it is crit­i­cal to work with my patients’ treat­ment teams to view each patient as an indi­vid­ual from a can­cer per­spec­tive as well as a human per­spec­tive and there­fore strive to deliv­er the best care possible.

"Dr. Baker answered all my questions thoroughly and carefully, making sure I understood what I had to do and what my options were with choices I had to make about treatment. She also took the time to help me understand - if necessary - the answers to my questions and repeated the most important points at the conclusion of the consult. Dr. Baker's attitude and conversation also made me feel that I was the most important person to her during my appointment. That is, I was more than just one of a many patients with boring questions she would be seeing that day. The assistant with the doctor also was personable and interested in what I had to say so my concerns would be reflected correctly in my record."
