Dr. Bassman is impatient and has little bedside manner. He rushes you through your appointment and doesn't like when you ask questions. The staff at his office is amazing. The ladies are all friendly and polite, too bad he is not.

I don’t think he has spent more than 1 minute in my exam room with me. I have been in pain for 8 months and since my secret nd MRI didn’t show any change in results, he pretty much told me he can’t do ANYTHING. There was no next step from his mouth or any bedside manners. I am talking to tricare to see if they will ban him from their list to prevent any other service members from going there and ripping them off. Please do not go to this man. Nurse staff was great, unfortunate to work with him.

I went in for a shoulder surgery and was suppose to have full use in less then a year. Here I am a year and 7 months later with only 50% use of my left arm!!! I will have to live with this pain for the rest of my life and gets away with treating people like they are beneath him!!! I would never recommend this man for any medical procedure!! He’s not even a good person!!! Lousy bedside manner and completely narcissistic!!! If I could give him half a star I would!!!

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!

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
