Patient Comments (3)
Houston, TX |
Each time I have seen Dr. Baxter, he diagnosed the problem correctly and took care of it. Very patient and a good listener.
in Conroe, TX |
Dr. Baxter performed surgery on my ankle that was badly damaged in a car accident and deteriorated over an 18 year period. I literally couldn't walk on it for more than a few 100 yards a day without experiencing severe pain. I was taking large amounts of OTC and prescription meds regularly to control pain and maintain employment. It has been 1.5 years after the surgery and outside of slight soreness at the end of a day with extensive standing and walking, I am pain free.

Dr Baxter did my bunion surgery in 2012 and it changed my life. I now have zero pain. He is honest, upfront, kind, and the office staff is great. I highly recommend him.
