He is highly intelligent, has a great sense of humor, and I recommend him highly. I don't think I would've made it to my current age of 67 without Mr.Dr.Mustafa Baskaya Aysen G.

Our mother was diagnosed with a glioma Grade II, with Grade III like characteristics by her original team of providers, who all said the brain tumor was inoperable, and even if it were operable, it was too risky and there would be no way her normal functions would not be damaged in the process. It feels like date that we found Dr. Baskaya and after his assessment, he determined it was operable. Aside from the fact that he is one of very few surgeons who has the experience and skills to successfully operate on this type of brain tumor in a deep part of the brain, his kindness, patience, humility, and genuine concern for the patient is nothing like our family has experienced before. I can't imagine how busy he is, but he always made sure to carve out time to answer our many questions and check in with our mother. He is one of those rare doctors who has dedicated his life and career to serve a mission to save lives and set patients up to have the highest quality of life. He and his Nurse

Dr. Baskaya performed my meningioma brain tumor surgery in 2008. He is exceptional. Highly professional, talented, confident, kind, and responsive. Letty is also a critical member of his team who is wonderful. I am very grateful for the 12 healthy and fun years I have experienced since my surgery due to being in their highly capable hands.

I had a meningioma. I couldn't have asked for a better medical team. I received excellent care, while there and till this day. Questions are answered and I love that you can get ahold of the staff thru my chart. Due to a car accident, I'm looking at two more surgeries, except this is collarbone and rotator cuff. I wish I could have Dr Buskya and his staff handle these. I can't say enough good about them. Thank you.

A gift from God! ?? when told a tumor wasnt able to be removed or given a biopsy do to location...he said I CAN REMOVE IT! AND HE HAS! this man is a blessing. Confident, real, and honest. His staff is calming and caring. When everyone says you just need to meet/talk with him to understand why hes the best, it's true. One visit and you'll have confidence too. If he says you'll be ok, you'll be ok and you believe him. Great environment. Great hospital. Best brain surgeon !!!

This review is 1 year, 2 months, 4 weeks and 3 days over due. I cannot thank all of the staff that I had the privilege to meet and know throughout my short time spent there and daily visits for treatment. A HUGE shot out and thank you to nurse Leddy!! Then the person who in my eyes performed a miracle, Dr. Baskaya I can't thank you enough,
