Terrible. He absolutely rushed the plastic surgery and never followed up. All follow-on treatment was delegated to his PA.

Dr. Bastidas is hands down the most professional and caring surgeon i’ve met! The moment he entered the room on my initial visit he was very informative, listened to what I had to say and confident. On the day of surgeon he talked me through everything, leaving me to feel safe and confident for the outcome. I’m 2 months post op and I’ve never felt better. Any time anybody ask who I went to, I speak highly of him. He will be recommended first!!!

I was a patient of Dr. Bastidas after I had Mohs surgery on my forehead after a diagnosis of basal cell cancer. Even though the basal cell was very small I was still a bit concerned as it was on my face. Dr. Bastidas, from the initial consultation throughout the procedure and the followups, was totally professional. Dr. Bastidas has a great bedside manner, explains everything thoroughly and patiently and is very skilled. He is truly a "nice guy" who makes the whole experience easy and stress-free. I followed his instructions for aftercare and the scar is barely noticeable. Most people tell me that if they did not "know" it was there they would not know it was there. Sometimes I saw his nurse, Robyn for followup appointments. She is also very informative and efficient and pleasant. All in all my experience with Dr. Bastidas, Robyn, and his entire support staff was top notch and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

From the setup of my appointment to the removal of my stitches The services have been excellent. The front desk professional and friendly. The assistants were amazing and patient with all my questions. I've never been rushed, nor uncomfortable with my procedures. When you book an appointment time, you are seen at that time. The Dr. Himself has a beautiful personality, obviously skilled in his profession and a nice looking smile :)

Dr. Bastidas and his PA, Robyn, are just gems in the large healthcare world! They put me at ease from the moment I stepped into their office, and made every appointment pleasant and totally pain-free! I had to remove a cyst and I didn't feel a thing - Robyn was extremely gentle and I have no scar now, 2 months later! Thank you both Robyn and Dr. Bastidas.

Removed a dermoid cyst from my seven-month-old. Procedure duration was shorter than expected. No ill effects from anasthesia, and no post-op Tylenol required. Superb incision healed very quickly, in spite of a rambunctious infants’ sabotaging efforts.

Dr. Bastidas and his staff are the best! A decade ago my ear was severely damaged because of a car accident. After several operations and a prosthetic ear, I was not satisfied with the results both functionality and aesthetics. Last year, Dr. Bastidas performed a complete ear reconstruction and not enough can be said about his skills as a surgeon and his care as a physician. I am very satisfied with the amazing results. Now, I can wear glasses and pull my hair back with complete confidence.

We went to Dr. Bastidas for ear molds for our newborn son. Our experience with Dr. Bastidas and his staff was one of the best experiences we've ever had with a doctor. He was available, professional, kind, approachable, and did a fantastic job at correcting our son's ears. Dr. B. also understood insurance coverage very well, advising us that the procedure would be covered by our insurance when our pediatrician had specifically said it wouldn't. I cannot recommend Dr. Bastidas and his team enough
