The Healing Sanctuary Health Care Providers
Jeffrey B. Baker, MD
Chief Medical Officer
I am the owner and founder of The Healing Sanctuary. I have dreamed of doing this for over 10 years and now making a big investment to make it happen.
I help patients with all their health care needs and questions with a more balanced and holistic mindset looking to find the source of the issues instead of just treating the symptoms. I am a continual learner and never seem to quit in helping patients in new and better ways for their health.
I am a BYU grad and U of U medical school grad with MD and board-certified in OB/GYN as well as integrative medicine and functional medicine. I also use some ayurvedic medicine as well.
I love to garden and take care of my yard. I love to travel with my wife and see new places. I love learning and attending new educational conference to make me a better resource for patient healing.
I have five children and twelve grandkids. All my children are married but the youngest. My brothers and sister all live in Idaho Falls where I was raised and I am the son of the late Drostan Baker, MD, who worked in Idaho Falls from 1957 till his death from a brain tumor in 1994.
Thanks for trusting us with your health!
Taylor Drew Smith MSPH, PA-C
As a native of Idaho Falls, I am excited to practice in this wonderful town and serve the community that gave so much to me in my youth. I became interested in healthcare at a very young age after having the opportunity to work at my grandfather’s pharmacy in Idaho Falls, Eastgate Drug. I find great satisfaction in building trusting and lasting relationships with those I see and find the most joy when medical decisions can be shared between the patient and provider.
I attended Idaho State University for one year prior to serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Mérida, México. I enjoyed the Hispanic culture so much that I decided to seek a degree in Spanish Language and Literature upon my return and graduated with my bachelor’s from Idaho State University. I graduated with my Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) and Master of Physician Assistant Practice (MPAP) from Campbell University.
I am excited to join the healthcare team at The Healing Sanctuary and have interest in the integrative medical approach they provide. I believe that health is so much more than just physical wellness, but rather includes emotional, social, spiritual, and communal wellbeing as well.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors, seeing new places, learning new hobbies, and treasure any time I get to be with my dear wife and family.
