Dr. Baquero chose family practice because its broad scope enables him to deal with a variety of medical and social issues. He enjoys working with families and caring for all members from infancy to adulthood. He strives to serve as a patient advocate and stresses preventive medicine, early intervention and a healthy lifestyle to maintain good health.
His philosophy of care is “treat others as you would like to be treated”.
Dr. Baquero is fluent in both English and Spanish.
Dr. Baquero focuses on how to achieve wellness and health through lifestyle, nutrition and prevention. He would rather recommend a trip to the grocery store or farmer’s market over the pharmacy.
He also did extensive training in Dermatology and procedural medicine. He regularly performs and teaches outpatient procedures including skin procedures, joint injections and vasectomies.
