Heather Baskin, MD
Like Lester’s dad, my father was an orthopedic surgeon. Seeing the impact that he had on his patients always filled me with pride and awe. Hearing someone tell him that their knee felt “good as new,” and seeing the appreciation on their face, made me want to be a doctor too.
Every patient—and every diagnosis—is a story.
My work is a partnership with my patients, and that includes being open to different treatment options—whether they occupy the realm of traditional or alternative medicine. I never underestimate the value of humor in my clinic and patients can expect an upbeat, enthusiastic, and relaxed environment where seeing your doctor is actually an enjoyable experience.
I am a relative newcomer to the Northwest, but I like to think that I have a bit of the pioneer spirit in me. I moved here in 1998 from the Midwest, knowing only that I wanted an environment that embraced nature and the outdoors better than Chicago did. I love to hike, bike, camp, and read.
