What People Say About Dr. Amelita Lourdes Basa, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Run!! Dr. Basa is a horrible endocrinologist. If you disagree with her or if you complain about symptoms or side effects she becomes highly offended and defensive. She acts this way even if you respectfully disagree with her! I had high levels of androgens (as shown on blood test) and visible symptoms of a hormone imbalance. She had the nerve to say it was normal!!! Really...so its normal for women to have facial hair and male pattern baldness? She just didn't want to treat my condition.

The staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. Dr. Basa was very kind and took time to listen to all of my concerns. She explained my condition in a way I could understand and allowed me to ask questions if I needed to. I will be going back for sure!!
