in New York, NY |
What an amazing DR.He took one look at me said I can fix your lip.something that in my 59 years all the doctors and surgery's and injections and pain did not do. he scheduled me right there and then and did not even charge me my copays he waived them. I never thought I would feel so good about my self now I face the world as if I can .ps I walked in his office for my son not even for me and that's the best part.This is how you know how wonderful some doctors really care I highly recommend Dr.B

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

Our newborn had ears that were folded down on top. Our experience with this dr couldnt be better. He assured us he could help, that it was non invasive, no downside. the results speak for themselves. The ears are perfect now. Thank u so much!!
