Jason C. Baker, M.D.
Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
I believe that successful treatment of an illness requires a collaborative approach between a patient and a healthcare provider, and that the keys to good health include preventative behaviors such as good diet and exercise habits. I also believe there is much to be learned about medicine and disease prevention in the developing world, where I am currently pursuing numerous global health projects.
