Cannot find a better office. *Dr. Baxley is an excellent diagnostician. She listens to you intently & has no qualms about ordering tests or medicines to help. There is no better doctors around.

One of the most empathetic and best listeners I have ever met. She asks the pertinent questions, quickly gets to the root of the problems and effectively engages the patient in the plan formulation. We need so many more like her.

Dr Baxley listens and makes sure you are heard. Many times I'm upset and she gives me time to ramble on sometimes cry. She is very patient understanding and when you leave you feel like there is hope for your issues. Just a kind physician and overall wonderful physician.
