Long wait and wrong diagnosis. I felt dismissed and talked down to.

I scheduled Dr. Baskind to see my sick child 3 times this week. Each appointment ended up with a perfunctory exam by an NP. We never saw Dr. Baskind once. The NP didn't even remember my child a few days after. Nothing was ordered until the second visit, and it was just OTC medications that we had already started. Some blood and stools were finally ordered on the 3rd visit, but we ended up in the ER the next day. Genius advice like "stay hydrated", "get rest", and "eat bland foods". Thanks!!!

Simply a great human being and physician. Has been with my kids since infancy and we still use him even though we moved cross county. Excellent at diagnosis and takes the time to explain the situation. He’s amazing with children and completely genuine. An exemplary office and staff is indicative of his leadership and vision.

An outstanding pediatrician! An excellent diagnostician who is also personable, kind, and caring. Dr. Baskind is able to put the most anxious child (and parent) at ease. I highly recommend.

Dr. Baskind and his staff are amazing! my kids love Dr. Baskind and calls him the silly doctor. The nurses are really amazing especially one of their nurse Monique. She was very nice, professional, patient and gentle with my son. He has a huge phobia with needles and passes out or throws up and he has been worrying about that visit for days. When Monique gave him the shot he didnt even know he got it. That visit changed his whole life and as a Mom i am so greatful

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!!!
