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.

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!

Dr. Baird is so kind, and has been a huge help! I appreciate her care. She cares medically, and also builds great rapport. I have recommended her to others and will continue to do so! The only negative experience I had was with the scheduler who tried to pressure me into seeing a medical assistant instead against my wishes and kept pushing my appointment out to get me to cave. In doing so the scheduler was very unprofessional saying "Oh, I'm sorry, we don't have anything at all with Dr. Baird." to "Ugh I'll look. Ummm OMG your not going to believe this. OMG. OMG. Ok you ready? You can see her but it's three months out and I know you don't want that right. Oh my God it's really all that there is." And was very demeaning when I said I was willing to wait to see the Dr. I have a history with. I finally thought to ask to be put on a waiting list and was able to see Dr. Baird. With the great rapport she has built and the genuine care she gives, I don't want to have to re-exaplain and start all over with someone else. I also appreciate that she is quick to answer phone calls and emails between visits when symptoms arise. She has even gone to bat for me with insurance and been a huge help in getting the prescription I need. I really appreciate her!

this visit was the first time that I had met Dr. Baird. The programming appointment took longer than expected but she made me feel as if I was the only patient she was treating. I didn't feel rushed out of the office. In addition to being a bright competent neurologist, she has the beautiful gift of making a patient feel heard and valued!
