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 and staff are great but they ABSOLUTELY need more drs and staff support so they can have more appts for patients. It took 5 months to get an appointment, three before I could even get scheduled, just told to call back in few months! I went without medical botox for 6 months and will now take another 6 just to get to the place where I was when I tried to get my first appointment, transferring from OHSU care, getting exact same injections, I even formally got from this exact Legacy clinic, just a different dr. But because it was over 3 yrs, I was considered New Patient, and again... MONTHS to get appointment. PLEASE HIRE MORE NEURO DR and staff. I am almost regretting changing provider companies because of this overall problem at Legacy with most clinics I've needed to establish care. Truly rather ridiculous. But again, Dr Baird and her team were awesome. Looking forward to my other appointments WHEN I can get in!

It took me 9 months of waiting for this visit and she behaved as though she didn't have time for my questions. Also she seemed slightly dismissive of my condition, as though it weren't serious enough for her attention.

The wait of a four months for the appointment was not good. Lost time for how to cope with diagnosis, what to do and not do, possible medication for treatment, and prognosis.

Dr. Jill Baird was very professional, very interested and creative in her effort to know the circumstances of my condition and to get to the root of it, the potential diagnosis. Meeting her was exceptionally pleasant for me - I felt cared for and respected and effortlessly comfortable in her presence - she is open and warm no less than skilled and professional - there was nothing which could be any better - I completely appreciate the way she is and feel grateful and privileged.Other Legacy employees that I came in contact with, from the receptionist, through the assistant to the lab workers were all friendly and pleasant to interact with.Thank you!
