What People Say About Dr. Brian Bast, DO

During a annual physical my doctor discovered a curvature of my spine, immediately sent me for x rays, then sent me to an orthopedist-Dr. Bast. The visit was a waste of time and money. This doctor is condescending and was unable to even advise care for this back issue. He said it would be best to wait for "something to happen" and then address it. His parting comment was, "Sorry I can't help you!" Very poor choice of doctor!

I have been a patient of Dr. Bast's for nearly 3 years. He is the most compassionate doctor you will ever see. He has a warm bedside manner, is extremely knowledgable, and consistently returns calls the same day. He referred me to an incredible surgeon at Yale when I needed one, and then resumed care for my back post surgery. Note: I am not a fan of the medical profession in general, so giving a 5 star rating is a rarity, but in this instance, it is very deserved.
