      I was living in Monterrey, Mexico and went to Houston where Dr. Baskin perform a surgery for me in March 1993 it was a meningioma and until today I am in a very good condition thanks to the professionalism and knowledge of this awesome Neurosurgeon.

      I was referred to Dr. Baskin a year ago when a meningioma tumor and arachnoid cyst were found. He is a compassionate, humble, and phenomenal neurosurgeon. He spent a lot of time reviewing the scans and options with me and my husband. Dr. Baskin's abundant expertise and access to latest technology enabled him to drain the cyst and delicately shave the tumor off of the sylvan vein it was attached to and compressing. It's been 9 months since my brain surgery. I always refer everyone to Dr. Baskin.

      I was so blessed to be referred to Dr. David Baskin! I was diagnosed with a very big tumor in my brain, and he completely removed it. I can not bless him enough to bring me back to life, he is more than extraordinary, and his staff is amazing! They truly can be called angels! He is a very gifted neurosurgeon. I recommend him 110%! He is the best!

      Removed my pituitary adenoma 14 years ago. Got it all. Disease cured. World class Doctor, world class staff.
      in Houston, TX |
      I was referred to Dr. Baskin after I was diagnosed with a very large brain tumor. After meeting with Dr. Baskin I was impressed with his compassion, knowledge and experience. I had so much confidence and believed that he was the doctor to remove the tumor with good results. He explained everything in detail and immediately scheduled my surgery. While waiting for the surgery his nurses were very helpful and understanding. He gave us his email address in case I had any questions. He is amazing!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
