Had a procedure to remove port a cath. Procedure went perfectly. Wound is now 98% healed! I'm back to my daily/ weekly activities w/ my children and family. Results and healing time were remarkable! Very little scaring from surgery occurred. Thank you Angelina Surgical Association and Dr. Bassin for a job well done!

Dr. Bassin is a wonderful Surgeon and his staff is very helpful, kind and compassionate. I would recommend this office to anyone. They made me comfortable, and in the operating room, he explained everything to me in depth. I am very appreciative of his entire staff and Dr. Bassin for the way I was treated and they informed me of everything. I was afraid, but was very relieved after my first office visit. Eveything was a very good experience for me. Thank the Dr. and entire staff for taking good care of me.

Dr. Bassin performed my first colonoscopy followed by putting in my port-a-cath for chemo, then surgery to remove tumor for colorectal cancer & lower anterior resection surgery. He was very informative before each procedure & during follow-up care. I would highly recommend him!
