Review of Dr. Bassen

-

Dr. Bassen is an exceptional child psychiatrist and an asset to Rhode Island's children and families. She is brilliant, kind, and effective. If she is firm with her boundaries and office policies, it is because this is absolutely necessary. She has to stay in business in order to continue to serve her patients and those who need her but have not yet gotten in to see her. There is a national mental health crisis due to the shortage of quality child psychiatrists available. Dr. Bassen is a gem.

No one could be more compassionate and capable than this doctor. She is attentive to detail, experienced with children, and PATIENT with patients/family members. Dr. B. was recommended to us, and we are truly grateful.

Dr. Bassen was referred by someone. Being a professional myself with childhood behavior, she dismissed ANYTHING I had to say regarding my child.. Told him to eat dark chocolate or somethimg bad tasting if he.had a bad thought,. no meds except low dose antidepressant. (Which turned out to be the med that.worsened his disorder) I'm not big on meds myself, but sometimes it can help you over the initial hump to adjust and realign yourself and mind, if truly needed

Review of Dr. Bassen

-Fall River, MA |

Started out fine. But within a few appts. very unprofessional. Also schedule issues. On one occasion we had a scheduling conflict at school due to standardized testing. We informed the office ahead of time that we would be 10 min. late and were told to come anyway it was not problem. We drove 30 minutes to see her, arrived as we had told them-10 minutes late, and she refused to see us. She was sitting in her office with no patient. Just wouldn't see us. And charged us a missed appt.

-Johnston, RI |

I have never delt with a more disorganized practice. They have moved appointments with out letting me, cancelled with out telling me and then proceeded to charge me $75 for "missing appointments." Today i went in at noon for my appointment that the doctor had wrote on a post it for me. They said it was moved and i was informed, which NEVER happened. they are constantly messing up everything and blaming the patient. She even dropped me as a patient once for missing an appointment (proof it's all

We have been seeing Dr. Bassen for anxiety. She spends <5 minutes with us, going quickly down a list of questions (which my teen felt rushed to answer - "no side effects? Sleeping okay?"). If it weren't a requirement to see a patient to prescribe meds, she might as well email us a survey. I'm glad insurance covered all but $10 of the $100 - and I'm not sure that was even worth it. Unfortunately there is a shortage of mental health professionals (esp psychiatrists) in RI so we're stuck.

My son has high functioning aspergers. He's seen Dr. Bassen for approx. 2 yrs. She started out supportive but just recently started treating us poorly. She even questioned my parenting and put blame on me almost like she was desperate for answer.She has rushed us on every appointment and seems very agitated lately. After a few appointments like this, coupled with rude comments from her, I decided to fire her. She is NOT an empathetic doctor by any means & treats her appointments like a #.

Review of Dr. Bassen

-Wakefield, RI |

Dr. & staff are rude & condescending. Final straw: they left a voicemail that my daughter's (patient of 3 yrs) upcoming appointment needed to be rescheduled. We assumed it was cancelled and I had forgotten to call to reschedule. Another VM was left on the day of the original appt. stating we missed the appt. & we owed a $75 no-show fee. I pleaded for a 1-time professional courtesy waiver of the charge due to apparent miscommunication. Dr.unwilling to budge, yet wanted to reschedule apt!!
