Dear Patients,

I just received a stack of cards from many of you.  My heart is touched by the grateful tidings I have read in your letters.  It is such a gift to be a doctor.  I am thankful that I have steady hands and am able to help many of you.  I truly enjoy being a physician.

I have spent several months with my children, and they are ready to send me back to work!  I am going to return to ophthalmology practice in a setting where I can balance both my obligations at home and my dedication to you.  To accomplish this, I am setting up a new practice with both flexibility and personal attention as guiding principles.  I am looking forward to this next chapter in my career.

Thank you for making me feel appreciated and missed with your letters.


Evelyn L. Baker, M.D.
