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.

Both Google Maps and Waze directed me to an address in Beaverton based on a search for Dr. Baird's office. Please work with them to fix this.

  Jul 25, 2023
I have referred people to this office I love my care team

Had to wait a half hour past my appointment time, but no other problems. I really like Dr. Baird and her staff.

  Jul 20, 2023
I like Dr. Baird very much. She is very open and inquisitive. Great people skills!

  Jul 13, 2023
Doctor seems caring and concerned.

  Jul 13, 2023
Though Dr Baird was kind overall, it felt clear she didn't understand why I would continue to pursue a diagnosis or treatment plan given little helpful data. The issues I'm dealing with are truly destroying key aspects of my life. I was given no direction to move forward and felt that she might believe I was making a big deal' out of things which other people have attempted to define and manage. I guess I felt minimized and ashamed for continuing to try to get well- for continuing to report all the things that aren't right and aren't getting better.

  Jun 27, 2023
Dr. Baird was very professional, as well as friendly. She had reviewed my medical history, and was thorough in her questions about my condition. She explained the available treatment options thoroughly, and discussed the follow up. I am very pleased with her care.

  Jun 22, 2023
The text for conformation of my appointment was the only information I got. It didn't let me know where to park or what building I had to go to or phone contact # or office number in the building so although I got to the complex on time I had difficulty and some waiting to to find the pertinent and essential info so I was late.

  Jun 9, 2023
I feel that I was treated with respect.

  Jun 8, 2023

Love Dr Baird

  Apr 26, 2023
Jill and her staff are probably the best in their specialty that I have experienced. They take the time to listen and explain conditions and symptoms in an understandable way.

  Apr 19, 2023
Intro letter and map of Emanuel campus should say there is parking available under and next door to Medical Office Building 1.

Dr. Baird gave me an excellent review of my health issues. Time spent was productive.

  Apr 11, 2023
It's hard to schedule since Dr. Baird's calendar isn't open to schedule I'm since my Botox migraine visits are needed x3 months and I have to wait for them to call me. My visit was a week late because of this.

  Apr 4, 2023
I was able to talk to the doctor about the few health concerns I had and she help me figure out what would be best for me. She referred me to a physical therapist and help me decide what medicine I should use to help with my constipation. She was very pleasant and so was her office staff.

  Mar 24, 2023
Doctor easy to talk to

  Mar 14, 2023
Dr. Baird was the 3rd neurologist I have seen in 3 years, and she made me feel comfortable, answered my questions, and explained the plan going forward with care. I really appreciate the time she spent with me. I left feeling hopeful-thank you!

  Mar 9, 2023
The provider informs me of medications which I am not taking which she believes could help me.Thank you much!

  Mar 7, 2023
This is a new doctor. I was having my very first visit with her so there's no history.

  Mar 7, 2023
This was my first appointment with Dr. Baird. Dr. Baird paid great attention to my medical condition, Parkinson's. I believe it will be great working with Dr. Baird. Dr. Baird showed how much knowledge and experience she has with Parkinson's.

Amazing doctor and amazing office. I appreciate everyone there and their professionalism. They are awesome.

  Feb 1, 2023
My appt. was mostly conducted by PA - which was fine. Dr. just spent a few minutes but I felt they listened & had looked at records.

  Jan 31, 2023
I liked her PA the best he took lots of time very personable. She was just fine just not anything to write home about.

  Jan 31, 2023
It's not easy to get an appointment. Example: I'm to have a follow up appointment in 3 months but can't make it yet because the schedule isn't in the computer.

  Jan 26, 2023
She asked me questions and she let me talk

  Jan 26, 2023
I'm unsure that providers know what other providers know,or knew, at The TIME of my consultatations. SUGGESTION : Tel. Call between MDs worked better in 52 yrs. Of medical practice .

  Jan 24, 2023
Dr. Baird is everything missing in today's common physician. When you write down what an amazing doctor needs to have and do, that whole list is what you get from Dr. Baird AND her PA Arthur. Outstanding.

Dr. Baird is the best!

  Nov 16, 2022
I went to the neurologist for the first time because I was showing signs of Parkinson's. My doctor was very knowledgeable and put my mind to rest she was able to order a Parkinson medicine for me that she thought would help me in the beginning stages she also talk to me about the side effects of medication because that always concerns me. I live alone and I'm [age removed] years old. I went home from this doctor visit feeling encouraged and hopeful for the future. And the reason for that was the concern and care that I received from Dr. Jill that day. So please thank her for me again. I look forward to having her as my Parkinson specialist for many years to come.

  Nov 8, 2022
Dr. Baird is knowledgeable regarding her specialty. She is an excellent communicator. Dr. Baird is courteous and respectful.

  Nov 8, 2022
The appointment was late in the day and the doctor was running behind. Consequently I had quite a long wait. But, the medical assistant kept me informed during the wait. The physicians assistant came in and started the assessment so that when the doctor came in we were able to discuss my questions and concerns. The doctor was very good about listening and giving me all the time I needed to discuss my questions and concerns. My appointment with Dr. Baird was worth the wait. I won't hesitate to make any needed follow up appointments with her.

  Nov 1, 2022
Good first visit with Dr. Baird, she is thorough and seams knowledgeable. You know your getting old when your doctor looks younger than your daughter.

  Oct 27, 2022
The provider spent a lot of time with us. We appreciate that she wasn't rushed.

  Oct 27, 2022
Very professional, informative and she was so nice to talk to!

  Oct 25, 2022
Wait time was long. 15+ minutes. Click in the waiting room was wrong

  Oct 7, 2022
Everyone has been very nice and helpful.

  Oct 6, 2022
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.

  Sep 30, 2022
Dr Baird listened to my concerns and addressed them all. She explained her diagnosis very well.

  Sep 29, 2022
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.

  Sep 27, 2022
Very good listener & communicator

  Sep 27, 2022
I will miss Dr. Baird when she relocates.
