Lester Baskin, MD

Owner, Internal Medicine


Doctoring is in my DNA—literally. My father is an orthopedic surgeon here in Portland and my grandfather was a general surgeon in Tacoma. I grew up making rounds with my dad at Good Samaritan, and remember wanting to be a doctor from a very early age. Watching my dad talk with his patients made me realize that “high-touch” medicine was as important as anything “high-tech.”

“When a patient needs your help, they need it now, not later,” my dad and grandfather always said. Helping people understand their medical problems and address them at the highest level—without time constraints—gets to the core of why I started the Baskin Clinic. I want my patients to feel that their doctor is first and foremost a partner and friend, as well as an expert in what ails them.

I’m a native of the Northwest and grew up in Portland, so the outdoors also runs in my blood. I love to hike, bike, camp, and garden. I recently succumbed to the local chicken craze, and our daughters and I are eagerly awaiting our first eggs.
