John Baker, M.D., of Sparrow Behavioral Health, and Rebecca Wolfe, M.D., of Sparrow Medical Group North, received the awards from Professional Research Consultants, Inc. As Top Performers, Drs. Baker and Wolfe scored at or above the 100th percentile compared to PRC’s national database of Physicians in 2017.
