About Me:

Dr. Baird grew up in Iowa and first became interested in caring for patients with Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders when she worked as a nurse’s assistant in a nursing home. She studied French and Neuroscience at Grinnell College, and received her medical degree from Dartmouth Medical School. She and her husband moved to Portland for her neurology residency at OHSU and fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. She completed a fellowship in Movement Disorders at Oregon Health and Science University, where her research focused on identifying more sensitive biomarkers of early Parkinson's disease progression in order to design better clinical trials. She is especially interested in how neuroinflammation may contribute to the development of Parkinson's disease and how the immune system might be harnessed to protect and repair the brain. Outside of work, she enjoys hiking, baking, yoga, and spending time with her husband and daughter.

Dr. Baird is excellent as well as her staff.

  Jun 12, 2024
As a new patient, with a referral from my PCP, the wait time of 14 business days before they would even schedule an appointment is terrible. Something about needing time to verify and validate my referral is ridiculous. Does not show much trust in in your PCP's.

  Jun 5, 2024
My long wait time was because the patient before me was over 10 minutes late for their appointment because the medical transport they used was late. But the provider was kind and saw them anyway. I was okay waiting because I had the time and I know how medical transport can be unreliable. And I appreciated that the doctor didn't rush my appointment even tho the patient before me made her run behind schedule.

Dr. Baird went above and beyond in listening carefully to concerns, took a great deal of time conducting MOCA exam, carefully explained the results and offered additional resources beyond her office to address these concerns. Excellent and caring physician.

Very difficult if not impossible to get to talk to an actual person on the phone. Very frustrating when you can't speak to someone or get a return call from someone when you need to speak with someone about an issue or appointment.
