There are only 2 Endocrinologists in the area. She is soft spoken, kind and extremely cautious. It seems she is only able to address one problem at a time.

OUTSTANDING! Dr. Bassiri is a careful, thorough and smart endocrinologist that is multi-talented in her field. She will not compromise her medical knowledge for something she feels is not right, yet is willing to go the full measure to test out hypotheses that also satisfies the patient's concerns and needs for wellness. She did that with me, and after many years, I FINALLY got my correct dose of thyroid medication (T4&T3) that satisfies my TSH, free T4 and free T3 tests. Knowledge is king!
