My first visit to Dr Bakers office was with Natalie, a new PA . She very bluntly told me there was no cure for cervical stenosis and my Pain level on a scale of 1-10 would never be below a five. It was extremely discouraging news. I had a epidural done by Dr Baker and my follow up visit with Natalie was worse. I said I didn’t appreciate her being so blunt and that the epidural did not work. Her response was asking me if I wanted more Tramadol and offered no more options. I have since seen other doctors and understand there is no cure but there are options and happy to report my pain level is zero to 1. I would recommend Dr Baker but would advise to not see Natalie.
