My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion as an internal medicine physician is to provide you with highly personalized healthcare with an emphasis on prevention and wellness. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I will treat you as though you are family. I'll have the time to develop closer relationships, review new and old records, and perform more comprehensive evaluations and exams. As your doctor, I want to work with you as a team to develop a plan to achieve your healthcare goals.

With 25 years of practicing internal medicine in this community, I have good relationships with many specialists to help guide you, if needed, with your unique healthcare needs. I am a board certified internist and Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Internists. It was an honor to be given the Most Outstanding Medical Graduate Award in 1986. I was chief of my internal medicine resident class, and it was a privilege to be President of the Arkansas Osteopathic Medical Association from 2013-2014.

My interests are in cardiovascular health, diabetes and preventive medicine. I also have an interest and extra training in autoimmune diseases. My staff privileges are at three of our local hospital systems, Regency Select Hospital, Northwest Arkansas Rehabilitation Hospital and the Circle of Life Hospice where I work on weekends as a staff physician.

Switching to MDVIP was by far the best decision we have made when it comes to our health. Dr. Baker never makes you feel like you’re just another number. He truly, genuinely cares for his patients.
