Dr. Bassett is heaven sent. He did back and neck surgery on multiple people in my family including myself. I have nothing but respect for this man. Getting an appointment took some time but well worth the wait. I’d recommend him to anyone. Thank you dr Bassett

Fantastic doctor! He really took his time to explain my problem and he gave me a range of treatment options that could help. I ended up having surgery and it was the best decision I have ever made. Also he is easy on the eyes!

May 06 2020

Review for Dr. Bassett

He is the most honest, caring Doctor I have met. He always explains everything and makes sure you feel comfortable with the treatments you may need. He is one of the few doctors that care more about your health than keeping you as a “customer”

This was absolutely the worst bedside manner I have ever seen.He literally just looked at a computer screen the whole time he was in the room.I should have never gone to see this doctor.They do not treat pain at all.I hope whoever reads this never goes to see him.

He didn't take my medical problems seriously. I was in the ER before, and I'm still concerned about my medical state, but he did not give any helpful advice, and was only in there for 2 minutes. It was obvious he did not look at my medical records to see what had happened.

Would give no stars if i could. He came in and asked us why he was being consulted as if we are supposed to know and then preceded to tell us “I can’t do anything for you” was the rudest experience I’ve had at a doctor office!

Brief, uncanny he wrote discharge diagnosis as herniated disc. He must have x-ray vision, no exam no test just muscle relaxer and pain shot and sent home. Unless your in a life or death emergency go somewhere else.
