Patient Comments (2)
in Tarzana, CA |
While Dr. Basta himself is okay, the low rating is intended towards their staff. I have never in my life seen a bunch of inept, lazy and generally moronic bunch in my life! I'm in an HMO and despite several visits from me and several phone calls from my provider, they seemed incapable of sending my medical records and authorization so that could get paid. If they send me a bill, I'll tell them to choke on it!

The kindest, honest, professional and caring sums up Dr. Basta. Very knowledgeable and approachable. I drive from Las Vegas to see Dr. Basta because he has been really good to me and my health.
