ABOUT

Meet Dr. Seth Baker

Accomplished cardiologist who believes in a personalized concierge approach to heart health.

Dr. Seth Baker – Concierge Cardiology, Vero Beach, FL

After 25 years of practicing cardiology as both a private practitioner and under hospital employment, Dr. Baker has seen patient care change to the detriment of the patient-physician relationship.

The erosion of that relationship is what inspired him to open Baker Cardiology – a personalized concierge approach to heart health, nutrition and wellness. This new business model allows for unhurried office visits and more quality time with each patient.

Dr. Baker prides himself on being an educator, patient advocate and coach – guiding his patients toward a happier healthier life.

Dr. Baker is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Cardiology and values patient education with an emphasis on wellness and prevention.

Education and Family

Dr. Baker grew up on Long Island where he developed an interest in science and technology. After earning his undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Baker moved to Florida where he earned his medical degree and met his lovely wife, Dr. Mary Baker while attending Nova Southeastern University.

The Bakers relocated to New Jersey to complete their medical training and start a family. Upon completion of training in cardiovascular medicine at the prestigious Heart Institute of Southern New Jersey at Robert Wood Johnson, Cooper Hospital/University Medical Center in 1996, the Bakers established a medical practice in Vero Beach.

Dr. Baker is active in several local and national medical communities. He is a member of the American Board of Internal Medicine, Indian River County Medical Society, Florida Medical Association, and is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology. Dr. Baker has been a member of the Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital Medical Executive Committee, served as medical director for both Indian River Medical Associates Cardiology and the Heart and Vascular Institute, and is a previous chairman of the Department of Cardiology.

The Bakers have two children, Andrew and Meredith, and they recently welcomed a daughter-in-law, Porter, to the family. Dr. Baker enjoys fitness and exercise, cooking, travel, photography, music and spending time with family and friends.

TESTIMONIALS

Since my bypass surgery 9 years ago, Dr. Seth Baker has guided my cardio health with incredible attention. Aside from his extensive medical expertise, he translates that into sincere, personal caring for my health and well-being. He has not only enhanced my quality of life but also my entire family. As a doctor and a man he is truly one of a kind and special. I feel very fortunate to have him in my life.

Dr Baker has provided great care for my husband over the years. Dr. Baker has always been accessible and quick to respond to our calls or texts. Recently, I noticed my heart was beating irregularly. I, of course, went to Dr Baker, somewhat concerned and apprehensive. He quickly diagnosed my condition and prescribed medication that put my heart back into a good place. His positive, reassuring manner and professional skills eased my fear and concerns. He is empathetic and always willing to listen. I think that this “treat the whole patient not just the heart” philosophy is what evokes admiration and trust in his loyal patients. I would highly recommend Dr Baker without hesitation to my family and friends.

I went along with my girlfriend to her appointment. She was told by another doctor that she would need surgery. Through Dr. Baker we were able to find out her heart was perfect without an invasive procedure! He saved us both from a risky procedure that was unnecessary.

I have been a patient of Dr Baker for about 7 years, I can say I’ve never had a better cardiologist, I personally have had problems with atrial fibrillation, Dr Baker has gotten it under control it wasn’t easy. He has always made himself available by phone, text or office visit if necessary. If anyone needs a knowledgeable well educated cardiologist Dr Baker is their person, I highly recommend him.
