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.

I found Dr Baird to be unprofessionally dressed or groomed. Her hair looked like she hadn't really spent much time combing it that morning. I expect a much more professional representation of the legacy group. She typed the entire time and really hadn't read all my notes. Just the last visit 4 yrs ago. It was a waste of my time and just referred me to a different neurologist. I'm very very disappointed in the practice. I have been trying to get an appointment for 1yr with an older established physician.

Dr Baird listened to my concerns and addressed them all. She explained her diagnosis very well.

My only concern is that I had to wait 6 months to see Dr. Baird, although I realize it was probably due to the pandemic and I don't have a life threatening condition- migraines.

Dr Baird was very attentive. She knew what she was doing and was very thorough. She is approachable; she allowed time to ask questions and she was kind and upfront. I like that I can have easy access, via email, with her. The only thing which is on the negative was it took 5 months getting an appointment.

Doctor Baird saw me for the first time as a as a follow on Doctor Baird saw me for the first time as a follow up on my stroke issues. She was genuinely concerned and has a plan in place and will see me again in six months.She also had her physician assistant Arthur with her as well as another doctor named Marie. She spent quite a bit of time analyzing my medical record and as I said has a plan in place.

Disappointed to hear this excellent provider is changing locations. Just got started with her & felt secure in care with recent diagnosis. Also I never time visits, besides no clocks visible.

Dr Jill Baird is exceptional and I have had hundreds of doctors. She's a human doing medicinal healing for humans instead of a practitioner practicing medicine on illnesses.

I waited for this appt. For 3 months. During that time, I utilized other doctors to conduct tests that Dr. Baird might need to determine my issues. I also phones her assistant multiple times with concerns and trying to get in sooner. At my visit, she had all of the records needed plus did a thorough examination of physical skills and asked questions to make a diagnosis. What was very irritating though was the questionnaire sent in email before appt. Was not available to ber during appt. I soent 1.5 hrs filling this out and it included a lot of nuero logical questions and symptoms I am experiencing, so I felt like I had to remember /share everything again. It was also frustrating that I had to wait 3 months for this appt. While experiencing neurological issues that were worsening . None of this is Dr. Baird's fault though.

I was somewhat disappointed that nothing could be found that was causing my balance problems. Dr. Baird was the third neurologist I have seen regarding balance problems. All have concluded it is not a neurological issue.

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.
