Patient Testimonials


Hi Dr. Baksh, I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I moved our family to the west coast last fall. I wanted to thank you for all the years you served as our primary care provider. We really appreciated you as our PCP and wish we could somehow keep you, but obviously that is not possible. I apologize, I realize that this is not a medical question, but I did want to send you a note of appreciation of the high level of care we received from you. We wish you much success. We were disappointed that we never got to see the new office or take advantage of all the interesting activities you are offering to help people stay healthy. Kindest Regards,

Debby H

All I can say is that, once again, Healthy Steps has come through for me: Daytime, evening and evn, in an emergency, night time.  My sincere thanks to you, your colleagues and staff. 



We are so happy to have found your practice. Thank you for all of your help in dealing with prescription/insurance issues. We very much appreciate the staff who go above and beyond! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season! Thanks again,

~Tierney E. and Frances M.


Dr. Baksh,

Words can’t express how I feel about you. You’re an amazing woman, activist and doctor. You are one of my heroes. I’m grateful this and every year for the many ways you take care of me and so many others in the communities around. This latest diagnosis reminds me how fortunate I am to have a physician and team that’s responsive, caring and knowledgeable. So many [with my unique condition] get diagnosed too late. You’re a big reason it was found early!

I’ve always known you’re a gem in the healthcare world. Thank you for being the “quarterback” I’ve needed these past few years. I’ve learned alot about how to navigate my healthcare from you.

Wishing you the best of the season and an amazing, well-balanced, prosperous 2018!

~Nneke O.


I can’t thank you enough for all you do. You’re caring, attentive, professional and do everything with warmth all year through.
Wishing each of you the best of the season’s promise and a wonderful New Year!!

“I have been a patient for more than 10 years and I am so impressed with the evolution of the Patient Portal. It is so easy to make an appointment, get questions answered and do your co-pays online. I always get a response within 24 hours :) “

~ Kim, A.  

“Dr. Baksh has made an enormous and positive difference in my father’s life. Since 2005, she has been extremely thorough and reliable in his care. With my father’s recent bout of serious health problems, Dr. Baksh has demonstrated what an unusual and special physician she is. Dr. Baksh treats my father with tremendous respect and understanding. She speaks honestly to him about his condition and provides good guidance, but also seeks his input on how to proceed. Dr. Baksh respected my father’s desires and worked up a plan B. She took a great deal of time with us to make sure we were on the same page, and understood everything. Dr. Baksh went above and beyond what we would expect from a doctor, and we were all deeply grateful. “

“On a personal note, Doc, you are the best doctor I have ever had, and you should be the prototype for doctors! Your knowledge, insight, concern, kindness and humor are, just to sound a bit British, simply brilliant! Once again, thank you for everything.”

~ Betsy S

"I feel very fortunate to have found your practice and want you to know how much I appreciate your attention, concern and good humor. Thank you so much for the excellent care you give me, my family and friends. Your office and nursing staff are top notch. They are efficient, friendly and most of all patient. I will continue to recommend you to my friends." 

~ Juanita, H.

“I wanted to thank you for all the time you’ve spent with me, your explanations are very clear. I am following up with the new exercise and diet program. I also wanted you to know how much my wife and I appreciate using the Portal. It makes it so easy to communicate, renew medications, and view my present and past records. The Portal so much easier for us than working with previous doctors. Everything is right there!”

~ L.K.

“I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for all of your help and support during these last few difficult weeks with my mom. Your amazing offer to have us come in during your "off" hours was so generous and wonderful. It meant she did not have to go back into the hospital. I feel so lucky we have found you.  Someone with your degree of skill, competency, compassion and genuine warmth ... a rare combination.”

~ Beth, G.

“What you do is beyond great bedside manner.  It is integrity to the nth power.  I so appreciate that you take the extra time to encourage and motivate your patients even to the point of exercising with us!  You absolutely walk the walk and I would (and have) recommended you as a personal physician to others.”

~ Donna C. TLS (Transitions Lifestyle Systems)

“My father has taken comfort knowing he is getting such thorough and comprehensive care from Dr. Baksh. Despite feeling scared and discouraged, he comes out of his appointment saying ‘I know I’m in good hands…I feel like she really cares about me.’ One thing we do not have to worry about is the quality and consistency of his medical care, knowing we have someone we trust taking care of his medical needs. I truly feel Dr. Baksh exemplifies the nobility of the medical profession.”


“I would like to thank Dr. Baksh and her team for the care and professionalism they exhibit when delivering healthcare. She surrounds herself with top notch people like herself, to provide quality care patients deserve. Rest assured, Dr. Baksh and her team are on top of your health. Thanks for all you’ve done these past 9 years! Thanks for all you do.”


"You all are AWESOME!  That's why I tell everyone that they should go to Healthy Steps. Seriously, I've never been to a doctor or medical practice that expressed such genuine care and concern for patients and actually listen to their patients.  Husna - you should be very proud since it starts at the top! I am so glad that my family and I are in YOUR care. Thanks!”

~ Jina

“I have been blessed to have a primary care doctor over the past many years that is a real gem. She has all of the characteristics of a superb family doctor; she is smart, dedicated, compassionate, and caring. More often than this, she respects and listens carefully to patients, always knows the right questions to ask, and is always determined to find exactly the right diagnosis and treatment plan for each and every patient. You can do no better than Dr. Baksh supervising your healthcare!

~Denali, B.

“I’ve been seeing Dr. Baksh for 9 years. I haven’t met a physician like her who listens to her patients and allows our symptoms plus the objective data she collects through medical tests, to guide the personalized, whole-body care that she provides. She is so passionate about the health and well-being of her patients, and role models healthy behaviors for us. She is always on the cutting edge of new science and brings this to bear for her patients. I am so grateful to have her for my primary care doctor - she puts all the medical and health pieces together. She is rare in the medical field (I would know, I have several doctors in my family!) Thank you Dr. B!

~Dawn, L

Dr. Baksh is the most thorough and attentive doctor I have ever had. She makes sure to cover all bases and makes sure to break it down so you are able to understand exactly what is going on with your body and what needs to be done for the best results. She shows interest in her patients and their lives which makes you feel comfortable and feel like you are in the presence of someone who really cares. Most doctors are so busy that they spend 20 minutes or less and they are in and out, but Dr. Baksh dedicated time and effort which I appreciate. Thank you!
