Dr. Baker subsequently practiced with the Chestnut Hill Pediatric Group for twenty years, also serving as Chairman of the Pediatric Department at Chestnut Hill Hospital for five of those years.
During these years, Dr. Baker began to see the limitations of conventional medicine and actively explored a variety of holistic healing modalities both for her patients and for her own and her family’s health. She loved working with children and their families but yearned to find therapies that were safer and more effective than prescribing synthetic drugs.
