“When I first met Mr Baker, he was professional and friendly, his explanation of the operation I was about to undergo (total knee replacement) filled me with confidence and put me at ease. The operation for me has been a complete success, I believe this is because of Mr Bakers work ethic and expertise. I would throughly recommend Mr Baker.” David Jenkins
