Great doctor! We started going to this practice almost 3 years ago when my first was born and now I bring my second to the practice. Dr. Baskind is great with kids, makes them laugh and feel comfortable. He explains things clearly, with relevant facts and details. The first time my son was sick Dr. Baskind followed up that evening. The practice is big enough to accommodate yet small enough that you see the same people each time which is nice.

Dr. Larry Baskind (or Dr. Bad Skin as the kids call him) is the very best pediatric doctor you could ever hope to find in this world! He has an enormous heart and the best sense of humor for kids and their often anxious and sometimes scared parents. He helps to put everything into perspective by clowning around with the kids and at the same time talking to them as real people (not talking 'down' to them). Thank you for over 20 years of love and laughs - we'll actually miss going to the doctor!!!
