Alyson K. Baker, M.D.

My Medical Specialty: Pediatric Critical Care
female | Speaks: English

As a pediatric intensivist, I take great pride in caring for critically ill children. Particularly, I thrive on the interplay of the different organ systems and their physiology. My specific clinical and research focus are on those children who suffer from neurologic disorders within critical care.
