We love Dr. Bassman! He has fixed miniscus tear on my husband and also helped with trigger fingers, and Carpal Tunnel surgery. Has also done shoulder surgery on both my son and myself. Can't say anything but good about him! If you want the best, he is it!

I felt he was very thorough and look forward to seeing him again for my follow-up! The office was very friendly and efficient!

Dr. Bassman has performed 6 surgeries on me and each was a great success. Further, he not a Zorro who is ready to pull the knife out. I wanted a hip replacement, and he said NO that I didn't need it. He felt my back was the problem. He was right. Unfortunately for me he does not do backs. Chris Gianoulakis
